Discovery Academy Tuition & Program Information

Tuition is due August 15th or upon enrollment (the month prior to a student’s beginning school). Tuition may be paid in full, in two payments, or broken into 10 monthly payments, August through May. Tuition is due the 15th of each month. There is a late payment fee of $25.00 for monthly payments 5 or more days late. School begins September 5, 2017 and ends June 13, 2018. Our 10-month payment schedule runs August 15th – May 15th.

  • Nutritious, organic (when available) snacks and lunches are provided each day.
  • Discovery Academy does its best to accommodate children with food sensitivities or allergies.
  • We will offer a nap room for our PreK students.
  • Students must be toilet trained.

PreK students who do not attend 5 days a week will have 30 days to make up absences due to an illness. However, families will not be granted discounts for extended vacation days/absences. Months that include holiday breaks or fewer class days (e.g., June – end of school) do not qualify for reduced tuition. The monthly payment system covers one tuition price and is broken out over 10 months for the ease of a family’s affordability and to successfully manage the Academy’s operational expenses. We thank you for your cooperation.

* Seasonal student tuition will be based on the percent of time a student is enrolled. If a student attends December through April (5 months out of a 10 month billing cycle) this is 50% of the time a full-time student is enrolled. Seasonal families are asked to make a $500.00 donation per student as a demonstration of commitment.
