There are three (3) payment options:
DTL1 – G2: Option A or B – one at the time of registration (prorated if late enrollment) and January 1st. Enrollments after January 1st will be required to pay the remaining annual tuition in full. No option C.
G3 – SS as mentioned above option A, B or C. The annual tuition for Grade 5 is $4326. If you cannot pay this in full, we have a payment plan that helps. With this installment plan, 100% or 50% or 25% is due today for enrollment, and the remainder is split due on the 1st of each month from October to May. Each installment payment contributes to pay off the debt to fulfill the annual tuition in full. If you choose to withdraw from our school, we require 30 days notice so the teachers can take the appropriate measure for their classes, dances and choreography. Installment payments are due up until the last day of class for your dancer.
a) Continuing dancers qualify to waive the registration fee if done before summer (6/1/21) o Fall (7/31/21), no exceptions.
b) Each installment does not pay for any particular month, but rather contributes to the annual tuition. Therefore, holidays/ shutdowns, exams/mock exams, picture day, rehearsals, etc., do not affect the installment amount.
c) Rachel’s Ballet will not mail or issue monthly billing statements or reminders. Please mark your calendars to avoid late fees and missing payments.
d) Late Enrollment – Tuition can be prorated for late enrollment and/or dancers can attend make-up classes.
e) A 30-day written notice (email) is required for withdrawal from the Fall-Spring school year. The 20% down at registration is non refundable and excluded from the 30 days notice.
