All tuition payments are managed by our online system, FACTS. We ask that each family begin by creating their FACTS account. Creating this account will not have any immediate financial impact on your family. The first tuition payment is not due until July 1st. Creating your account as soon as possible is important as it takes our tuition office and FACTS a few months to make sure your account is ready for the July 1st tuition payment. FACTS Accounts can be setup here.

Due Date: July 15, 2020
If your son/daughter has an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or is eligible for Section 504 accommodations, submit a copy of that documentation through the document submission portal.
