Tuition Policy
I. Tuition and any applicable fees are due and payable on or before July 1, 2018. St. Catherine’s Montessori has contracted with FACTS Management Co. to manage tuition and other fees for 2018-2019 school year.
 
II. Tuition is payable through payment plan set up through FACTS. Tuition may be paid by automatic bank payment (no fee), credit card payment with 2.85% service fee, or payment by check made directly to school. Returned checks will incur a $30 fee.
 
III. Tuition payment plans are as follows (All fees are still due on 7/1/2018):
• Annual Plan (one installment plan)
• Three equal tuition payments due 7/1/2018, 10/1/2018, 1/1/2019.
• Nine equal tuition payments due on the first day of each month July, 2018 through March, 2019
  1. Three and nine month tuition plans payment plans include interest at the rate of 7.5% per annum.

IV. Tuition unpaid by the tenth day of the month in which it is due is considered delinquent and collection procedures will be pursued. Late payments will affect the ability to finance tuition in the future. If tuition becomes 90 days or more delinquent the financing arrangement is considered breached and the balance of the school year’s tuition will become due and payable immediately.
 
V. Families with more than one child enrolled in the school will receive a tuition discount of 10% for each younger sibling.
 
VI. No school records or teacher recommendations/evaluations will be forwarded to other schools until all past due tuition amounts have been paid in full.
 
VII. All exceptions to the tuition payment policy must be approved by the Head of School. 
 
VIII. Online applications for tuition assistance are available through FACTS. Scholarships are awarded through Archdiocesan Scholarship Fund and St. Catherine’s Scholarship Fund based on financial need and funding availability.  Scholarship applications will be available February 2019.
