When do I have to pay my tuition?Seating status will not be granted until the June installment (aka the non-refundable seating fee DUE on June 1, 2017) has been received by the school. If the seating fee has not been received by June 1, you run the risk of being put on a waiting list.
How do I pay my tuition?The school accepts six different payment formats for tuition. Depending on the format elected by the patron, different tuition rates are charged (cost savings are passed on to patrons who choose payment methods that utilize more efficient processing.).
What must one do to qualify for the reduced rates (as opposed to paying the higher, standard rates)?Reduced rates are available to those who opt for a payment format that realizes cost savings through more efficient processing. Patrons desiring the reduced rates must prepay all of their tuition or opt for one of the installment-payment methods that allows for automation (ACH, Bill Pay, or payroll withholds for patrons who are also employees).
So, if I have chosen to pursue the reduced rate, what do I do next?It depends upon which payment format you want to pursue.
I don’t want to pursue any of the payment methods that qualify for the reduced rates, and I understand I will pay the non-discounted, standard tuition rates as a result. What payment methods are still available to me, and how do I submit payment?

Is there any application fee?A non-refundable application fee is required to be paid with all applications. Application fees include initial assessment fees (see “Evaluation & Expectations” for more details):
What is the seating fee?Applicants who are ultimately enrolled will be assessed a seating fee equal to one month’s (one-twelfth of annual) tuition.This fee reserves the applicant’s grade-specific spot(s) for the coming year. The seating fee is fully applied to the student’s tuition obligation (i.e. the seating fee is not in addition to, but rather satisfies, the first month’s tuition payment).
Are there any other fees of which I need to be aware of?Tuition covers the virtually all of the basic, curricular experience your child has at American Heritage School. The school makes available various extra-curricular activities that your child may elect to pursue. Extra-curricular offerings include after-school athletics and music programs. Extra-curricular programs often do have a participation fee associated with them that is designed to cover the costs of offering the program.
