Fee Payment Terms/Options
Fees are payable in full, in advance by June 1. Fees may be paid by cash, money order, post dated cheques or Visa/Mastercard. Fees paid in full by June 1 will avoid any finance charge. Payment options are provided as a process to facilitate the payment of school fees. Fee payment options available for the 2012/2013 school year are:
- Payable in full by June 1, 2012. If paid prior to June 1, 2012 by cash, money order or cheque payments families will receive a 2% discount on net tuition fees payable. No discount is available if payment is made by credit card or paid after June 1, 2012.
- Instalment payments can be made by money order, posted dated cheques, bank draft or credit card and are payable on June 1, 2012, September 1, 2012, December 15, 2012 and March 31, 2013. A 12% finance charge is applied on total tuition fees payable for this option.
The fact that fees may be paid in instalments does not constitute a fractional contract.
Overdue fee payments (30 days past due) are subject to interest charges of 2.0% per month (26.8% per annum) until fully paid.
There is a $30.00 charge for returned cheques for any reason.
To ensure the planning for new staff and physical plant requirements the School needs to have an accurate census of returning students. After the first year of study, a student enrolling for the second and subsequent years is expected to notify the School and have paid a non-refundable deposit of $1,200 by March 1st of each year. Invitations for re-enrolment forms will be mailed out during the second term and the deposits will be automatically deducted from the following year’s tuition.
If this deposit is not received by March 1st the school cannot guarantee the student’s placement for the following year. If the school has not received this deposit or any payment of fees by June 1st it will result in the automatic de-enrolment of the student. Any future enrolment of the same student will require all applicable enrolment fees be paid.
Responsibility of payment
Most of the schools expenses are fixed: teacher’s salaries, delivery of core programs and maintenance of the school facilities. It is essential that the SchoolÃs income from fees be assured. When a student is formally accepted and enrolled, a place is reserved for the entire year. Unless the Admissions Office has received WRITTEN notification of withdrawal prior to June 1, 2012, I understand that I have secured a position in Aspengrove for the 2012-2013 school year. In consideration of Aspengrove School reserving this position for my child, I acknowledge and agree that the deposit is non-refundable for any reason whatsoever and that I am responsible to pay to Aspengrove School all tuition for the entire 2012-2013 school year, such tuition to be payable in any event, including the withdrawal of my child from Aspengrove School for any reason after June 1, 2012. The School reserves the right to dismiss any student whose conduct is not satisfactory.
In addition to tuition, there are costs for school supplies, textbook deposits, instrumental rental, field trips, and uniforms. These costs vary by grade, starting at $100, excluding uniforms, and increasing by grade. Any costs that are annual in nature are not refundable regardless of the reason for withdrawal.
