THIS AGREEMENT is entered into by and between the St. Maarten Montessori Foundation and the parent or guardian whose signature appears below. The parties hereto accept the following terms and conditions governing the child’s enrollment at the School.
The parent/guardian agrees to pay the tuition and all fees for the program in which his/her child is to be enrolled in accordance with announced rates.
Upon the signing of this Agreement, the parent/guardian agrees to pay the School a Material and Registration fee plus a deposit equal to two months tuition. This fee is non-refundable unless the child is denied enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year.
The parent/guardian understands and agrees that the child is enrolled for the entire school year and that the parent is liable for the entire year’s tuition and fees upon signing this agreement. This agreement can only be voided if the parent/guardian notifies the School that the child will not be in attendance for the 2021-2022 academic year by June 1st 2021.
The parent/guardian further agrees that the withdrawal or dismissal of the child after the execution of this Agreement does not relieve the parent/guardian of the responsibility for payment of the entire school year’s tuition and fees.
The parent/guardian agrees to pay tuition in accordance with the payment plan chosen as laid out in the fee schedule for the 2021-2022 school year. Checks are due the first of the month. Failure to pay tuitions by the due dates will result in a $10.00 a day late fee. Bank checks given for payment which are returned for insufficient funds will result in a $50.00 fee.
The fact that the School allows tuition to be paid in two or more installments does not create a fractional contract or in any way relieve the parent/guardian of the responsibility for the entire year’s tuition and fees.
The parent/guardian agrees that if tuition is not paid in accordance with this Agreement, the School shall have the right to refuse to admit the child to class. The parent/guardian also agrees that the School shall have the right to withhold the transcript and school records until all the tuition and fees have been paid. The School also reserves the right to refuse re-enrollment for the following school year if the 2021-2022 tuition and fees have not been paid in full.
This Tuition/Fees Agreement is not binding until executed by the School and is for the period of one year only. This Agreement is further conditional upon the child finishing the current year in good standing.
It is my preference to pay school Tuition and Fees by the following payment plan. I understand that I may change my method of payment during the course of the school year by submitting a new Tuition / Fees Agreement approved by the School.
