Fundraising is a means by which tuition is kept as low as possible. Success in fundraising is critical to the school’s financial well-being. Since every family benefits from this effort, families are required, but not limited, to support fundraising by contributing a minimum of ten hours to school-sponsored fundraisers.

When a child has developed assurance, he has the strength of character to resist the fads and fallacies which divert so many people from the basic truth. He will be able to chart his own course through life and be able to maintain the path he wishes to follow.

Terms and Conditions

Tuition payments are due on the 1st of the month. A late fee of $25 is charged as an administrative expense each month a payment is past due. The late charge is incurred if the payment is received after the 10th of the month. The Howard School (“School”) does not send invoices for tuition payments. The School does invoice separately for tutoring and other miscellaneous charges, and for late payments.

Tuition for the academic school year shall be earned in full at the time the Enrollment Agreement is accepted by the Headmaster. There is no reduction or remission of tuition or fees for a student’s absence, suspension, dismissal or withdrawal. If an account is delinquent for more than 120 days, the student may be suspended from classes until the outstanding amount is paid, and the financially responsible party (“FRP”) indicated in the Enrollment Agreement shall pay or otherwise provide for any needed tutoring to assist the student during the suspension and after the student returns to school.

If the student is withdrawn from the School by a parent or guardian during the academic school year, the balance of the year’s tuition will be due immediately upon withdrawal, notwithstanding the payment plan originally selected. All legal fees and collection costs, including attorney’s fees, incurred by the School to collect a delinquent account, whether or not a lawsuit is brought, shall be added to the account past due and paid by the FRP.

The School reserves the right to terminate enrollment at any time if it is determined solely by the Headmaster that the school does not meet the needs of the student, or that such action is in the best interest of the School. Reasons for enrollment termination may include, but are not limited to: failure of the student or parent to follow school rules; student academic or behavioral problems that, in the opinion of the Headmaster, need the attention of professionals other than teachers; and the need to insure the welfare and safety of students. In the case of dismissals, it is the sole discretion of the Headmaster to determine if there will be a refund of any prepaid tuition.

Though the School customarily uses event-specific permission slips, signing the Enrollment Agreement gives permission for the student to take part in all school activities, including sports, physical education programs and trips away from campus, and releases the School from liability for any injury incurred by the student.
