  • Tuition Commitment Date

    We strongly encourage all families to carefully read the terms of both the Enrollment Contract and Tuition Refund Insurance. Please note that the tuition commitment date is June 15, 2017. The Contract states that the family’s obligation to pay tuition for the full academic year is unconditional as of June 15, 2017. No deduction or remission of tuition shall be made by the School, after this date, for any absence, dismissal, or withdrawal for disciplinary, health, academic, personal or other reasons whatsoever, including school closure in the event of a disaster, except for any portion covered by the Tuition Refund Plan, and only if said plan is purchased. The Tuition Refund Plan is the sole remedy to protect students, parents, and guardians from incurring the obligation to pay full year tuition, and the School recommends it for consideration even when not required as set forth in the Enrollment Contract.
    The only options for families who withdraw after June 15, 2017 are to pay the School in full or use tuition insurance to cover this expense. Please note that this insurance cannot be purchased past the date of September 1, 2017. Per the terms of the insurance, please be aware that students must attend “fourteen consecutive calendar days beginning with the student’s first class day of attendance in the academic year” in order to submit a valid tuition claim. Reimbursement is prorated for days not attended and is subject to type of withdrawal.
  • Tuition Refund Insurance

    Tuition Insurance from A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. is available to protect your obligation to pay tuition under the terms of the Enrollment Contract. Tuition Insurance insures tuition (prepaid and due) in the event of a child's separation from the School according to the terms of the insurance policy. Please see the enclosed brochure.
