Review of Compliance with Fee Payment Policy

  • Compliance with these policies will be monitored by the School Board.
  • If Payments are not made as agreed, parents have an obligation to contact either the Principal or Pastor. Every effort is made to assist families experiencing financial hardships. If families choose not to contact the Principal or Pastor and persist in the delinquency of their payments and no resolution can be made, the school will be forced to implement the following policies:
    • The student(s) will be denied re-enrollment for the following quarter.
    • Report cards and other pertinent records will be withheld until the past due tuition has been paid in full.
    • Failure to comply with these policies will be excused only in case of extreme hardships as determined by the Principal and Pastor. In such cases of extreme hardship, alternative methods of payment through the performance of in kind services for the school or parish will be considered. Families who leave the school with outstanding fees may be referred to a collection agency if arrangements for payments have not been made with the school.

Parents/Guardians who are facing financial hardships, who believe their circumstances need consideration, must take the responsibility of contacting the Principal or Pastor.

All proceedings, deliberations and decisions under these policies by the Principal and Pastor will be held in the strictest of confidence.

The policy of St. Michael the Archangel School is to provide to its students the finest education services available, in a Catholic Christian environment, including a variety of special educational, remedial, and extracurricular activities and services.
 
No child of an active, practicing Catholic will be denied a Catholic Education due to financial hardships…No one will be turned away from St. Michael’s for financial reasons!
