Students with special needs may require special educational services not covered by the said tuition fee stated in this contract. In the case of a student who requires special educational accommodations, it is the responsibility of the PARENT to have a contract drawn up that delineates the additional cost/s associated with the special service/s needed.

Payments made to replace a check that has not been honored must be made in the form of cash, credit card payment, or money order.
