Students may also use the installment plan for any portion of their tuition not covered by their awarded financial aid. Installment plan agreement contracts and information regarding the Academy's installment plan may be obtained from the Accounts Receivable office. The Accounts Receivable staff may assist the student with the completion of the required contract.

Students enrolled for Fall or Spring may submit an online application for our four-month installment plan contract.

Interest-Free Plans

In addition to our four-month installment plan, we also offer a pre-payment option. This option allows students and parents to pay in advance for a future term's tuition and place the residual balance on our regular installment plan. This money management method allows both students and parents to budget and finance their educational costs in advance, and lessen the financial burden as each semester begins. If you are choosing to utilize the four-month installment plan in addition to pre-payments you have made, please advise your Accounts Receivable advisor at the time we assist you with the completion of the contract.
