Parent agrees to reimburse the School for such fees/costs within thirty (30) days of School billing Parent for such expenses.

Parent’s failure to pay such fees/costs promptly will result of dismissal of the family from the School.Parent’s Commitment to Truthfulness in the Admissions and Enrollment Process:
The School is relying on the completeness and truthfulness of the information provided by the Parent in the admissions and enrollment process.

There will be no refund of tuition where such termination occurs and any unpaid balance is payable in full according to the terms of this Contract.
