Payments are due by the 1st of each month beginning in August and continuing through May. A late fee of $20 will be added to all accounts not paid by the 5th of the month unless other arrangements have been made. If after 45 days the account is not up to date, it may be necessary to terminate the student’s enrollment. Tuition will be prorated by the month if a student is only enrolled for a part of the school year. For students who withdraw, payment is due for the full month for which they withdrew.
Full Year Plan
If you choose to pay the full tuition in one payment, a 3% discount will be given. This does not apply to those receiving any tuition discount, nor does it apply to fees. Should a student leave Cornerstone for any reason after having paid for the entire year, a refund will be given for any overpayment.
All students not picked up by 3:30pm will be charged a $5 fee per child. A fee of $10 per child will apply after 3:45pm.
A $20 fee will be charged to accounts for a check returned by the bank unpaid. If as many as two checks are returned, Cornerstone will accept no more personal checks from that student or patron.
All report cards and/or transcripts will be held at the end of the school year until all financial or material obligations have been met.
These fees are charged because of upkeep of equipment and use of materials. One-time registration fees and book fees are charged each year to every student. These are due upon enrollment and are non-refundable. Registration fees cover various tests, ACEA fees, insurance, etc. The book fee covers all the necessary textbooks that will be used by the student, including both non-consumable and consumable books. The students do not purchase their books by paying the book fee. For textbooks that are lost or returned in bad condition, the student will be charged the wholesale price to replace that textbook.
Fees relating to participation, such as sports, are non-refundable if the student is put off the team/squad due to behavior or academics. Fees for academic related items will be charged on September’s bill unless pre-paid. Fees for sports related activities are due at the beginning of participation for a particular activity. However, only one sports fee will be charged per student per year.
The graduation fee includes the cost of the diploma and cap and gown rental or purchase and related expenses. This fee is due by the last tuition payment.
