Tuition & Financial Commitments

More information is available online.

Preschool Parents:  Preschool Tuition follows the same process as K-8 enrollment.  Any family who has not paid the balance on their account at the end of each quarter will be unable to attend until the account is paid in full.  

Pledges (Nonmembers)

In addition to the above fees, nonmembers are asked to support the educational program at Trinity with a monthly pledge. 

Stewardship Policy

Payments can be made at any time in the school office.  All payments are due by the 15th of each month.  The first payment is due on Registration Day (K-8).  All school accounts must be current at the end of each quarter.

PROBATION

Accounts that are not current at the end of each quarter will be placed on "probation".  The family will have 30 days to bring the account up-to-date while on "probation".  The school will notify the family in writing of the probation period and the amount due.

Hardship situations must be identified immediately to the Principal and will be addressed on a case-by-case basis by the Day School Committee.

DELINQUENT ACCOUNTS

Accounts are delinquent when not settled within the “probation” period (30 days).  Families that do not honor their financial obligation AND have not had a verifiable hardship will be required to make other arrangements for education outside of Trinity. Any student not enrolled in school is subject to truancy laws. 

Please contact the school office if your circumstances change and you are beginning to fall behind in your payments.  FACTS will notify families and the school of delinquent accounts.

Families with delinquent accounts at the end of each school year will be prohibited from re-enrolling at Trinity until the account is settled in full.

Delinquent accounts involving 8th grade students will receive an unsigned diploma at graduation.  The fully authorized signed diploma will be given when the account is settled in full.
