Tuition and Fees
















General

A tuition invoice is sent home in the first Tuesday Envelope of each month (September-May). Payments are due the 20th of each month. Payments may be made via the Tuesday Envelope, mail, personal delivery to the bookkeeper, or deposited in the lockbox located outside the main office. Annual fees are billed on June 1st of each year, and are payable in installments over the summer months.

It is incumbent upon each family to ensure receipt of the monthly invoice and remit payment in a timely manner. In cases of separated or divorced parents, the parent of record is held responsible for the account unless otherwise mandated by a court of law. Financial arrangements and disputes are not the responsibility of the school, and should be settled without the involvement of NAPS staff.

Monthly invoices should be used as a receipt or record of payment. RETAIN invoices throughout each calendar year for personal records and tax purposes. Do not discard until the tax return has been filed. The school is unable to supply copies at year’s end. The school’s federal ID# is 52-6001692.

1. Tuition is paid in nine equal installments. First installment is due by 5/20/of the upcoming school year for returning students, or at time of enrollment for students new to NAPS. Second installment is due 9/20/of the school year and monthly thereafter.

2. Annual fees will be billed in one installment on 06/01/of the school year and are due by 8/20 of the school year.

There is a $100 per-family, nonrefundable fee upon initial application.

There is a limited amount of financial aid available. Call the school for details.

Refund Policy

Refund policy for families withdrawing children during the academic year

A 30-day written notice of intention to withdraw a student is required to avoid losing tuition.

If a less-than-30-day notice is given, there will be a tuition obligation for 30 days, beginning the date the written notice is received by the school.

Exceptions will be made in case of military orders or medical emergency.

Other exceptions will be considered by the board on a case-by-case basis.

Under no circumstances will any portion of the annual fees (book/supplies and building maintenance) be refunded.

School records will not be released until all NAPS accounts are paid in full.

If a student is asked to withdraw as a result of disciplinary action by the board, there will be no refund.

Permanent enrollment is billed in advance whether it is full-time or part-time use.

There are two enrollment periods for permanent use of extended care. The first is at the beginning of each school year and covers September through December. The second enrollment period is in December and covers January through May. Once enrolled you are obligated for the entire period, it is not possible to switch back and forth between permanent and occasional use.

Permanent part-time users who use additional days will be charged for those days at the daily rate for occasional users.

As before: occasional use when available is charged to the student’s account the month following the use.

 

Penalty Fees

Late payment of tuition: Parents whose tuition payments are not received by the 20th of the month will be assessed a $25 late charge.

Returned checks: $25 (After two occurrences, payment must be made by cash, or bank check for the remainder of the school year.)

Late extended-care pick-ups: There will be a fee at the rate of $10 for each 5-minute segment after normal closing time. (This is a per-child charge.) Three late pick-ups will preclude use of the extended-care program for one month. The director will review extenuating circumstances regarding late pick-ups on a case-by-case basis.

Before-school care without reservation: $15

After-school care without reservation: Pre-kindergarten children remaining at school from 12 noon to 12:30 p.m. or full-day students remaining from 3 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. without reservations for after-school care are sent to the extended-care program and a late fee of $15 is charged to the student’s account. Students remaining after 12:30 p.m. or 3:30 p.m. will be charged both the late fee and the daily extended-care rate. Parents are reminded to sign-out children no matter what the time. Failure to do so will result in the maximum charge.
