Tuition Payment Plans*
Pay in Full – Cash
To pay in full upfront with cash or check, the tuition balance is due in full by August 3rd, for all families receiving a tuition invoice (mailed early July). Anyone registering after August 3rd 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 August 3rd. 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 August 3rd. 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 May 15th.
