Admissions & Enrollment:
Our Admissions, Enrollment, Tuition and Financial Aid processes are all facilitated through a third-party, TADS. At the time of enrollment RPMS charges a non-refundable $150 registration fee per child per school year.
Tuition Payment Options:
One payment option, the whole tuition amount (minus a 2% discount) is due August 1st.
Two payments option, payments are due August 1st and January 1st.
Nine payments option, the first tuition payment is due August 1st with the remaining eight installments due monthly by the first of the month beginning October 1st.*
Twelve payments option, the first tuition payment is due June 1st with the remaining eleven installments due monthly by the first of the month. The twelve payments option is not available after June 1st.*
*TADS charges a one-time $45 processing fee to manage accounts. (RPMS does not profit from this fee. The entire processing fee is retained by TADS).
TADS send out invoices mid-month with payments due on the 1st of the next month. Invoices reflect tuition for the next month; for example, tuition for November is emailed out mid-October and is due November 1st. A grace period of five days is allowed. After the grace period, a late fee will be applied and a statement will be emailed. (RPMS does not profit from this fee. Late fees are retained by TADS).
Sibling Discounts will be applied as follows: highest tuition (no discount); 2nd highest tuition (20%); 3rd highest tuition (35%); 4th highest tuition (50%). If a student qualifies for multiple discounts, they are applied individually, highest to lowest. Discounts are applied to program tuition only. No tuition refunds are offered for children’s absences. The Parents are obligated to pay the entire annual tuition and applicable fees regardless of their choice in payment plan options.
Geraldine Hedberg Financial Aid Program:
Rock Prairie Montessori School is fortunate to provide a limited amount of financial aid yearly. Financial Aid applications are due no later than 3:30 pm on the IRS Tax filing deadline (usually April 15th). There is a $34 processing fee per application to be paid to TADS upon submission. (RPMS does not profit from any applicant. The entire processing fee is retained by TADS). The determined percentage of financial aid offered to each applicant will be finalized in May for the following school year and will not exceed 20% of tuition total.
