Supply Fee

Basic materials and resources are supplied specific to each class's needs. The school will replace items based on normal usage. Students are provided with high-quality stationery and equipment and are encouraged to treat them with care. Because the supply fee is reflective of the curricular needs for a  class there is some cost variation over the course of the eight grades. Fees for in-school ice skating activities are included for all grades students. Fees for small group string instruction is included in the fourth grade when the string instruments are introduced, but not in later grades when families are expected to secure private string lessons out of school time. Individual class trips sometimes present an additional fee. The trips are arranged at the teacher's discretion and are designed to enhance the curricular experiences of the students. We make every effort to keep our fees reasonable and reflective of the actual needs of the program.

Payment Plans

We offer a variety of different payment plans to help families manage their tuition costs, ranging from annual or quarterly payment plans, to a monthly plan that enables payments to be made in ten equal monthly installments.
