Tuition and fees are assessed prior to the beginning of the school year. Tuition must be paid in full in order for the student to participate in extracurriculars. For billing and refund purposes, the school year is divided into quarters.
*Important to note is that tuition rates have been adjusted to include all fees (except Registration Fee)..
Registration Fees and Open Enrollment
Due to increased enrollment, families are encouraged to apply early and register at the beginning of the Open Enrollment period to best ensure enrollment. Please contact Kelly Mueller, Enrollment Coordinator, at (920) 322-8012 for more information.
This discount is given to families with more than one child in the system. The oldest child will be charged full tuition and the younger siblings will receive a discount based on which campus they attend
Tuition Payment Plans
A tuition statement will be mailed to you in June for payment. Each family is responsible for making arrangements to either pay in full or to enroll in one of the following payment plans. If a responsible party defaults on the selected payment plan, a 1% fee will be added each month on the unpaid balance. It is also the policy of St. Mary's Springs Academy (SMSA) that failure to sign a payment plan by the start of the school year will cancel registration for that school year.
Pay in Full - Cash
To pay in full upfront with cash or check, the tuition balance is due in full by July 15, for all families receiving a tuition invoice (mailed early June). Anyone registering after July 15 will have 30 days from the processing of the registration form to pay in full or begin a payment plan. (Please note that enrollment is based on a first-come first-serve basis and grade caps might restrict late enrollments)
Pay in Full - Credit Card
To pay in full upfront with a credit card, the tuition balance is due in full by July 15. A processing fee of 3% will be added to the payment amount to cover the credit card transaction cost to the school.
SMSA Payment Plan
Families must pay 25% of the outstanding balance by July 15. A payment plan maintenance fee of 5.5% is added to the remaining balance. SMSA uses an Automated Clearing House (ACH) direct withdrawal payment plan and families arrange for monthly payments to be made via direct checking or savings account withdrawals. Withdrawals begin August 15th and continue through March 15th.
Enroll in Loan Program at National Exchange Bank
Families can elect to take out a loan in order to pay tuition and fee charges. Loan papers are processed at National Exchange Bank. Payments begin August 1 and continue through May 1.
