In consideration of acceptance of this Contract by the School for the enrollment of the Student, whose schedule will be for the 2022-2023 academic year of September 6, 2022 to June 30, 2023, (the “AY”), or for the portion thereof remaining, the undersigned Parent(s) agree to pay all the required tuition, fees, deposits, and charges set forth herein.
A copy of the Contract must be signed by the Parent(s) and returned to the School along with the completed registration packet for the 2022-2023 academic year or any portion thereof. Parent(s) must provide all forms and academic records required for enrollment as requested and at a minimum before the Student’s first day in attendance. If forms are not returned or are not updated yearly as required, the Student shall not be allowed to attend School.
Parent(s) who use an automatic payment method for fees and tuition installment payments for the 2022- 2023 academic year are responsible for associated fees. If you choose this payment option, please complete, sign, and return the Payment Authorization Form to the School. In addition an ACH payment arrangement can be authorized by the parent(s) without any fees.
Payment and Late Fees:
Parent(s) agree to pay the School for other fees as outlined below:
• Late Payment Fee: Payments not received by the 5th of the month incur a late fee of $50.00 (if the 5th of the month falls on a Sunday or holiday, payments must be received by the 4th of the month in order to avoid a fee). There are additional late fees of $50.00 every five days after.
• Returned Check Fee: Checks not honored when tendered for payment incur a $75.00 charge to the Parent’s account to cover charges assessed against the School by its financial institution.
An account will be considered delinquent if not paid by the 15th of the month. The Student may also be withheld from classes until the delinquency is cured.
An account will be placed in default if the account is not paid within 21 days of the due date. The parent(s) understands that in the event of default your child will be suspended from the rolls (training and classes) pending full tuition and fees payment and at 30 days your child will be removed from the rolls. The account may then be referred to the School’s collection agent and/or counsel for satisfaction. Parent(s) also agree to pay all costs of collection, including collection agency fees, attorneys’ fees, court costs.
Default of Payment:
All accounts must be current (all tuition and fees) before records and transcripts can be released or transferred to other schools. Students will not be allowed to continue to attend classes or participate in other school activities unless tuition and fees are paid by stated deadlines.Transcripts will be held for students until all unpaid tuition and fees are received.
Parent(s) may terminate this Contract at any time provided that 30 days written notice is given to the School. The student may attend classes during the month following notice of withdrawal if the month’s dues are paid in full as scheduled. Failure to notify the School of early withdrawal obligates the Parent(s) to pay 100% of the following month’s tuition. There are no refunds and any deposits are forfeited. The School reserves the right to terminate this Contract at any time if it determines, in its sole discretion, that:
• the Student is unable to thrive in the School’s environment, • the School is unable to meet the Student’s needs
• the attitude or conduct of the Student or of the Parent(s) is not compatible with the School’s mission or with the welfare of the other students
If the School terminates the Contract under these circumstances, the undersigned shall thereafter be excused from further tuition responsibility. The School is limited to a refund of the unearned portion of tuition paid in advance of services.
Student’s enrollment at the School is subject to the general statements, rules, regulations, conditions, and financial terms contained in the School’s Parent and Student Handbook and other published documents, which may be amended from time to time. Parent acknowledges that Parent and Student must abide by such School rules and guidelines. The Student’s enrollment at the School is subject to the Parent’s support of the standards of the School in its philosophy, methods, objectives, and policies, including moral, academic, behavioral, dress, conduct, and disciplinary standards. Parents agree:
• To assume the responsibility for parental monitoring of the Student’s education,
• Being an encourager, and keeping in regular contact with Student’s teachers
• Read all correspondence/emails sent from the school in a timely manner
• Keep the school informed of any changes to emergency contact information
• And to attend mandatory meetings called by the School.
Parent(s) also agrees to support, to the best of the Parent’s ability, the School’s entire program through time, attendance at parent meetings, and participation in various School activities.
Parent(s) agree that email is a primary means of communication used by the School, and the School agrees not to release email addresses to solicitors or third parties.
A positive and constructive relationship between the School and Family Member (defined as Parent, Student, or other person associated with Student) is essential to the School’s educational purpose and responsibilities to its students. If any Family Member engages in behavior, communications, or interactions on or off campus, that is disruptive, intimidating, overly aggressive, or reflects a loss of confidence in or disagreement with the School’s policies, methods of instruction or discipline, or otherwise interferes with the School’s safety procedures, responsibilities, or accomplishment of its educational purpose or program, the School reserves the right to dismiss the Family or Family Member from the community. The School may also place restrictions on a Family Member’s involvement or activity at School for other reasons that the School deems appropriate. Any determination under this paragraph shall be in the School’s sole discretion. There will be no refund of tuition where such dismissal occurs and any unpaid balance is payable in full according to the terms of this Contract. The School also reserves the right to withdraw an offer of enrollment or re-enrollment at any time and to void an executed Contract.
Students who have had known exposure to Covid-19 or are demonstrating any symptoms of possible infection will be removed immediately from school premises and placed on home study/training until they have met CDC criteria to discontinue home isolation. Those who have had close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19 must stay home, monitor for symptoms and follow CDC guidelines. Any failure of a Parent or Student to notify school administration of COVID-19 exposure, symptoms or positive tests will result in termination of this Contract and removal of the Student from school rolls. The Parent also agrees that the Student is obligated to abide by all required sanitization and social distancing protocols as dictated by school and health officials.

If, in the opinion of a properly licensed and practicing physician, the Student needs medical or surgical services which require Parent’s pre authorization or consent, Parent hereby authorizes, appoints, and empowers the School to act as Parent and furnish such consent on Parent’s behalf. Parent confirms that it is Parent’s desire that the Student be furnished with such medical or surgical services as soon as reasonably possible after the need arises. Parent hereby releases and holds the School harmless from any liability which might arise from the giving of such consent.
Consent to Onsite Medical Care, Including Referrals for Student Counseling:
The Parent hereby authorizes the School to supply medical care as needed for Student (including administration of allergy medications, Epi Pens, etc. according to the Student’s prescription from a licensed practitioner) or other minor medical care or emergency as determined to be appropriate by the School Staff. The Parent also authorizes the School’s student guidance counselor to meet and counsel with the Student regarding emotional, social, or family circumstances. Parent hereby releases and holds the School harmless from any liability which might arise from the provision of such medical care or counseling services.

In an effort to do so, however, information included in the materials (including class sizes, student-to teacher ratios, School accreditation, teacher qualification, specialization, and length of service, etc.) may change as programs grow and as staff changes. Prior to relying on any written materials in making your decision to enroll your Student in the School, please verify the accuracy of information with the Admissions Office. Please also understand that even if the information was accurate at the time that you enrolled the Student, the information may change prior to commencement of classes or during attendance at the School. Please also note that only the President (or his/her designee) has the authority to make commitments regarding the nature of the program, specific arrangements for students, or other changes from the School’s regular curriculum.
Governing Law/Waiver of Jury Trial:
This Contract and the rights and obligations of the parties shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey without regard to principles of conflicts of law. The parties agree to waive the right to jury trial over any claims pertaining to Student’s enrollment, attendance, or separation from the School including, but not limited to, claims of breach of contract, under statute, ordinance, or common law.
Reimbursement for Domestic Legal Issues:
Parent(s) understands and agrees that the School’s primary purpose is to provide educational opportunities to the students within its institution. Parents also understand that it is disruptive to the School for a Parent to involve the School (or any of its employees) in domestic legal disputes between the Parents and that the School often must pay for legal fees and costs associated with such issues. Therefore, the Parent agrees to promptly reimburse the School for all expenditures incurred by the School as a result of Parent’s domestic legal disputes, including, but not limited to: Parental disagreements about Student’s education or placement; divorce proceedings; custody proceedings; and/or modifications of custody proceedings. Cost incurred may involve reasonable attorneys’ fees/costs to prepare for and/or attend depositions, trials, or hearings; communication with Parent or Parent’s counsel, guardian’s ad litem or attorney’s ad litem; respond to subpoenas; draft letters or motions; and perform research. Costs include the cost of copying documents, providing records, engaging substitute teachers or temporary employees, computerized research, and travel expenses. Parent agrees to reimburse the School for such fees/costs within thirty (30) days of School billing Parent for such expenses. Any dispute between the Parents regarding which Parent may owe which portion of the bill should be resolved between the Parents so that the bills for reimbursement to the School can be paid on a timely basis. Parent’s failure to pay such fees/costs promptly will result in 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. If the School finds out after the Student has been admitted and enrolled that the Parent was not truthful in the admissions and enrollment process on any issue that the School, in its sole discretion, finds to be important, the School has the absolute right to terminate this Contract. 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.
Each party represents and warrants to the other (1) that it has full power to enter into and perform its obligations under this Contract; and (2) that this Contract constitutes its legal, valid, and binding obligation, enforceable in accordance with its terms. Parents in two-parent households agree that each is acting as agent for the other. Modification of this agency relationship shall be in writing and delivered to the School. No oral modifications will be recognized or accepted.
This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding of the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and merges and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous oral understandings between the parties. There have been no representations or warranties made by any party other than the representations and warranties contained herein.
