Students should re-enroll each spring in order to ensure space for the following academic year. In our experience, students need to participate for the ENTIRE academic year to receive the full benefit of the program.
Tuition and Payments
All programs for the academic year begin in September and end in June. A non refundable registration fee is due annually at the time of registration to reserve your spot. Students may register throughout the year if space permits. The Summer Program will have a separate registration fee and tuition.
We offer several payment plans to best fit your needs - please speak with Ms. Feng for more information. Academic Year Tuition can be paid in 3 installments. They are due on Registration Day or September 1 (whichever comes first), November 1, and February 1. If tuition is not received by those dates, there will be a late payment fee of $100. Thank you for cooperation!
