St. Edward School Financial Policy
It is the policy of this School Board to require financial accounts become current prior to a student receiving grades on mid-term or final exams. An “Incomplete” (I) will be noted on student’s records until delinquent accounts are paid/rectified/settled in full.

Tuition may be paid in full at the beginning of the school year, the beginning of each semester or any other time. If tuition is not paid in full, it shall be paid in monthly payments not to exceed ten (10) months.
Each payment is due on the FIRST (1st) day of the month, no later than the FIFTEENTH (15th) day of the month. When payment is not received by the fifteenth day of the month, a late fee is charged.
