Additional Financial Considerations
- Three annual fundraisers supplement tuition and provide an additional 10 - 15% of revenue to cover Program expenses. Our goal is 100% family participation. Your contributions are tax deductible
- Incidental charges may include the following: snack bar purchases, occasional bus use, club fees, school supplies, book fees, athletic gear, and additional field trips not already included in the tuition.
- Parents can expect tuition to increase annually by 3% to 7%, depending on operating costs.
- By signing a Contract, parents enroll students for an entire academic year. In the event that a student withdraws before September 1, 2022 the contract states that 21% of the annual tuition is owed to the school. As of September 1, 2022 the full tuition is due the school. See the following Tuition Refund Plan for details.
Tuition Refund Plan Policy
The Tuition Refund Plan is important for Mount Madonna School and its families. MMS requires full payment for the academic year after August 31, 2022 and will make no adjustment of fees for absences, withdrawal or dismissal. Therefore, we are pleased to be able to help protect families’ financial investment with the Tuition Refund Plan.
This Plan, offered by A.W.G. Dewar’s, provides an allowance of tuition fees in the event of withdrawal of a student, for any reason, or dismissal by the School. The Tuition Refund Plan becomes effective on August 1, 2022 if a student is unable to attend school due to a covered medical reason. The non-medical coverage, which covers voluntary withdrawals and dismissals, becomes effective after the student attends 14 consecutive calendar days beginning with the student’s first day in the academic year.
The cost is 2.1% of the annual tuition fee for the 2022-23 school year. Parents who do not pay the total annual fees by August 31, 2022 must participate in the Tuition Refund Plan or present evidence of comparable insurance coverage. Participation is optional, but recommended, for those who pay the total annual fees by August 31, 2022. Because we do not give refunds for unused tuition, we recommend all parents participate in this Tuition Refund Plan.
New Family and Sibling Incentive Program
This incentive rewards current families for referrals that result in newly enrolled students. A
referring family receives a one-time:
- $1,000 tuition credit for each new family they refer who enrolls one or more students for
a full year.
- $500 tuition credit for each new sibling within their own family enrolling for the 1st time for
a full year.
- If a new student enrolls for a partial year, a partial incentive reward will be given.
When a new student enrolls, the registration paperwork must indicate the referring family. All incentive discounts will be credited to the referring family's account in October following the new student’s start date. The recipient family must have a student enrolled at MMS to receive a credit.
