Tuition and Fees
2019 - 2020

Tuition and Activity Fees 
Tuition is the annual amount charged to cover routine instructional costs and supplies. The activity fee covers costs associated with some classroom materials, as well as additional program coordination and technology used to support curricular goals.

WAYS TO PAY
All families are required to establish a tuition billing account through TADS.** The account will then be customized with the family’s choices for A) payment plan option, B) payment method and C) preferred payment date as described below.

A). Payment plan options. A $1,000 deposit is due at the time of enrollment (Reduced to $900 for siblings). The activity fee is due in July 2019. The balance of tuition is then due in subsequent months as follows:

 

1. One single payment in August 2019. (If you choose this option, TCS pays the annual $45 TADS fee)

2. Two equal payments in August and December 2019, or

3. Seven equal monthly payments August 2019 through February 2020.***

 

B). Pick a payment method:
 

• Electronic payment (most cost-effective method)

• Invoice for checks/cash

• Credit Card

 

C). Pick a payment date:
 

• 5th of the month

• 20th of the month

 

More Information:

 

*Siblings receive a 10% tuition discount tuition.  
 

**Families are required to have a TADS account to allow for easy and convenient billing of tuition, fees, and incidental charges such as before and after school, class photos, spirit wear, and pizza lunch. TADS charges a separate $45 annual account fee.
 

***To calculate the monthly rate, subtract $1000 deposit (or $900 in the case of a sibling) and the applicable Activity Fee ($500 or $900, depending on student’s grade) from the TOTAL in the above table. Divide the balance by 7 to calculate the monthly amount due.
