Tuition Refund Plan (TRP)

Your financial obligation to the school is for the full annual tuition as stated in the school’s enrollment contract. The school cannot refund tuition or cancel unpaid obligations if your child is forced to withdraw during the academic year.

If your son or daughter withdraws, the Tuition Refund Plan will pay benefits (subject to the terms of the policy and the amount insured) to the school, which provides substantial assistance in meeting your financial obligation. Read more…

  • Payment in Full (discount applies) (TRP Optional)
  • 2 Payments (due July, November of the school year) (TRP Required)
