Registration Fee

A registration fee of $250 per student is due upon completion of the tuition contract, and is non-refundable. A signed contract and paid registration fee is required to reserve a spot on the class roster.  

Capital Assessment Fee 

A Capital Assessment fee of $750 per family is payable to the school based on the payment plan selected by the family (either lump sum due in July or monthly beginning in June).  The Capital Assessment fee provides funding for payments of debt service and capital projects managed through the MCPS building fund.

Finalsite collects tuition payments with ease, uses automated reminders, and creates customized payment schedules for families. Online tuition contracts are generated within the system, and families will be notified to login and digitally sign the contract. The billing dashboard within the Finalsite will offer a transparent breakdown of tuition, fees and billable items.
