For returned payments, FACTS charges a $30 NSF fee in addition to charges you may receive from your bank. Prince Avenue Christian school charges a $25 fee per occurrence on late tuition payments and assesses a 2% per month late fee on unpaid incidental balances.

Withdrawal 

Initial application/acceptance and re-enrollment contracts with Prince Avenue Christian School represent a binding agreement between a family and the school for the contract period, which is one school year. Because teacher contracts, school services, and curriculum and supplies are funded and purchased at the beginning of each school year based upon student enrollment, honoring the one year contract period is necessary to ensure the school delivers the services agreed upon during the enrollment / re-enrollment process. Prorated tuition for early withdrawal is the exception, and any family who desires to withdraw their student prior to the end of the school year is expected to honor the financial commitment for the one year contract period. Exceptions are handled on a case by case basis, and any requests for prorated tuition must be made in writing to the Head of School. 

In cases where prorated tuition is awarded, families will be charged a “$300 withdrawal fee per student.  If a family withdraws a student after completing re-enrollment but BEFORE the first day of school, the family will forfeit the non-refundable re-enrollment fee and be assessed a $300 withdrawal fee per student.   Upon paying the withdrawal fee and settling all other financial balances, the family will be released from the tuition contract for the upcoming school year.

FACTS Management Fee 

FACTS charges an annual fee per family to administer tuition payments

  • A one-time $20 payment is required for tuition that is paid as a lump-sum or in two installments.
  • A one-time $50 payment is required for tuition that is paid via a monthly payment plan.

FACTS Tuition Payment Plan Options 

Annual tuition can be paid either by lump sum in advance (full amount due by June 15th) or by a monthly payment plan over 12 months with the first payment due on June 15th and the final payment due on May 15th.     FACTS also provides the option to have the due dates on the 1st of each month rather than the 15th for those who may prefer this timing.

If a student is accepted after the normal 12 month payment cycle has begun, the monthly payments will be calculated from the date of acceptance thru to the final payment in May.

FACTS Incidental Charges (Lunch, Store, Athletics, etc.) 

In an effort to keep general tuition for all students at an affordable rate, those students who elect to participate in co-curricular activities and use auxiliary services will be assessed incidental fees that are necessary in order to cover the costs of administering each optional activity. A listing of incidental fees is available in the Family School Handbook (examples: athletic team participation, cafeteria purchases, bus transportation).  In addition, services or items that are provided as an “add-on” (examples: field trips, t-shirts, supply fees, graduation fees, technology fees for high school, etc.) will be charged on a student’s FACTS account as an incidental fee.    

FACTS Incidental Payment Options

  • Enroll in Auto-Pay  (Preferred)  -  Using this option, you will have the same window of opportunity to review invoices before they are due as with the non-auto enroll option.  On the due date, the payment will automatically be either withdrawn from your linked bank account, or charged to your credit card (a 2.85% service fee is added)
  • Make Individual Payments  -  For each payment due date you must make a manual payment (either by contacting FACTS via phone or by agreeing to the payment on-line).
