Tuition and Fees
The registration fee is equal to one month’s tuition, which will become part of the tuition that includes all materials and textbooks. Only one-half of the registration fee is due at registration when the application is signed, and the other half is due thirty days from that point. This registration fee is non-refundable. These fees do not include uniforms, meals, back-pack as needed.
Tuition may be paid annually or monthly. Payment can be made by check or cash. Tuition is due on the first of each month. A $20 late fee shall be charged after the 10th of each month.
Multi-student discounts are given for families with more than one student enrolled at FBA. Annual tuition is discounted 10% for the second child. A 20% discount is given to any additional students following the second child.
A one time payment option is available which entitles you to a 5% tuition discount, but does not include the multi-student discount.
Tuition is not deductible in case of illness or school holidays.
It is assumed a student is enrolling for the entire year, and budgets are set accordingly. Students who withdraw before fulfilling the financial contract must submit a 30-day written notice. All paid fees are forfeited and a two-month withdrawal fee will be assessed. Report cards and/or official/unofficial transcripts are released to the parent or other schools only when the student s account is paid up to date. In case of an extenuating circumstance the Director, with the input of the school board, will make the final decision.
This is a one-time fee that is assessed in September of each year which covers curriculum and technology upgrades.
This fee covers any placement testing if needed during the admissions process. This fee is due at the time of testing and is non-refundable. Not all admissions require the test.
