Tuition Fees

When a child becomes eligible for a program, the family will be notified. If the family wishes to enroll the child, a seat holding fee of $150 is required to hold the child's space. In addition, a $10.00 emergency supply fee must accompany the completed forms before the child will be admitted to the classroom.


Tuition may be paid monthly, by semester, or by academic year.  Payments must be made in advance of services rendered. All fees are to be submitted via credit card [fee] or electronic check [no fee]. Monthly payments are due on or before the first business day of each month. Statements are not mailed. A parent information white board is located in front of the main entrance that will alert parents of tuition due dates. It is the parent's responsibility to make certain that the tuition is paid in a timely manner unless special arrangements are made with the administrative director. Failure to comply with this payment schedule could result in dismissal from the program. The Lab School does not pro-rate tuitions due to family vacations or absences.
