Tuition Bills
We use an online billing system called Brightwheel. Once you have been enrolled in the program you will be sent an invitation to connect to your child's digital billing system. Bills will be distributed electronically as close to the the 1st of the month. Tuition payments are due at the by the 5th of each month. Families with subsidies/vouchers (Changing Tides) will pay the difference of the monthly charge and the subsidy. 
Payments after the 10th will be considered late. There will be a $25 late fee charged to your bill.
