Tuition Payment Schedule
Heritage Christian School requires that full prepayment of the annual tuition is received at HCS by August 1.
Payment of Non-Tuition Fees
Heritage Christian School will accept payment of fees not included in tuition (see list above) through several avenues, including EFT (electronic funds transfer), cashier’s check, check or cash payment. Please see the student billing associate for details.
Annual Family Commitment Fee (All Returning International Students) - The annual family commitment fee of $225 per family is billed in May. When paid, the annual family commitment fee reserves seats for the upcoming school year for each student currently enrolled, and obligates the family to the withdrawal policy should their enrollment plans change. Students who will not be returning for the next school year must notify the Admissions department by completing the withdrawal notification form by March 31. Students who withdraw for the upcoming school year after March 31 will be subject to the withdrawal policy. All fees are non-refundable.
Late Fee - A late fee of $35 will be charged to any past due accounts at 4:00 pm on the 15th of each month and for each subsequent month until accounts are current. NSF (non-sufficient fund) fee for returned EFT transactions is $35.
Prompt payment of tuition is vital to the operation of HCS. Heritage Christian School reserves the right to prohibit a student from attending school, to withhold report cards, and deny online access to grades for past due accounts.
