Each family must complete an application and submit a $50 application fee for enrollment. A wait list is created for each age level. Children are received into the program on a basis of the earliest application and must be at least two years of age at the time of enrollment. Parents sign a one-year contract and are responsible for one year's tuition unless a replacement can fill that vacancy upon early departure. Due to COVID-19, the Elementary Program is participating in 2 month contracts since the situation surrounding COVID-19 is everchanging.
The tuition fee schedule is below. Monthly payments are made through the ProCare software, Tuition Express. It is an automatic withdrawal system that can be arranged to receive deductions from your bank account or credit card company for ease of payment.

- 2 Authorization documentation
- 2 Emergency medical information
