Additional Fees

TUITION COLLECTION FEE FOR MONTHLY PAYMENTS

For monthly payers, we use a tuition collection company called Smart Tuition. This service offers the convenience of different payment options. There is an annual per-family fee of $25 to be a monthly payer and use Smart Tuition.

VOLUNTEER OPT-OUT FEE

We encourage all of our families to volunteer at the school to meet the parent volunteer requirements. For those who are unable to do so, there is a volunteer opt-out fee of $1000 per family. This is billed at $100 per month, September through June.

FIELD TRIP AND SPECIAL EVENT FEES

Elementary students usually go on approximately three paid field trips per year for cultural enrichment or to enhance their historical and scientific studies. Kindergarten typically goes on 6-7 field trips. A fee of $5-10 is generally charged to parents to cover the cost of the trip.

Secondary students usually go on two paid field trips per year. A fee of $8-15 is generally charged to parents to cover the cost of the trip. High school students (9th grade and up) attend a high school protocol event in the spring term. The fee for this is usually around $50 a student.

 

Discounts and Scholarships

 

SCHOLARSHIPS

Paideia has a Generosity Fund for families in need of tuition assistance. Scholarships are awarded based on availability of funds and need of applicants. Families desiring a scholarship should should fill out a Scholarship Application Form and submit it along with their enrollment application. Most of our scholarships are awarded at the end of May or beginning of June, so it is best to have scholarship forms (along with accompanying tax return) submitted by early May to be considered for tuition assistance.

Paideia offers a 15% tuition discount for students who are the children of ordained Christian pastors in full-time ministry at a church. Please note this on your enrollment application if you would like to apply for the pastor’s discount.

LARGE FAMILY DISCOUNT

Paideia offers a 20% tuition discount for the fourth enrolled child in a family and beyond.

Paideia offers a 40% tuition discount for full time Paideia teachers whose children are enrolled at Paideia.
