Enrollment Contract for New Students

We recognize the importance of a long-term relationship with families for the education of their children. To provide a seamless transition from year to year, Aquinas utilizes a continuous enrollment (CE) model. Families will sign one continuous enrollment contract that will continue from admission until graduation. This process allows the comfort of knowing that your child is registered without the annual paperwork or fee deadlines.

This continuous enrollment contract is entered between Aquinas High School (the “School”) and the undersigned responsible party(ies) (the “Responsible Party(ies)”) for the student. The Responsible Party(ies) must agree to the following:

Term of Enrollment Contract: This contract begins on initial registration to (1) the student’s graduation from Aquinas or (2) termination by either the family or the School.

Schedule of Tuition and Fees: Aquinas will publish a yearly tuition and fee schedule in January for the following school year. Any incidental expenses or fees not included will be billed separately, i.e. senior fee, trip fees, athletic fees, lunch, etc.

Payments Due: 

Registration fee for returning parents: The yearly registration fee will be automatically billed to the Responsible Party’s FACTS Tuition Management account on February 15 for the upcoming academic year. The registration fee will be split into 3 equal payments, March, April, and May. If the Responsible Party(ies) prefer a single payment option, this must be arranged through the business office prior to February 15.

Registration fee for new families: The full registration fee, for the initial year, will be paid through the school website and is due prior to scheduling.  

Tuition payments will be scheduled to be paid in monthly installments, June through May. A yearly FACTS processing fee will be charged to your account in May.  If you would like to arrange for a one-time tuition payment on August 1st, please contact the business office.

Refund Plan: Registration fees are non-refundable. If you are unsure about your student’s registration for the following school year, please see the Opt Out section below.

Tuition fees are non-refundable after the start of the semester, see Financial Policies section.

Opt Out: The Continuous Enrollment Contract can be terminated prior to a student’s graduation by (1) the School or (2) the Responsible Party(ies) by providing written notice to the school. Any written notification needs to be made prior to February 15. All notifications of “opt out” must be received and acknowledged by the business office.

Code of Conduct Policies: During the period of continuous enrollment, the student and Responsible Party(ies) agree to a yearly review of the Aquinas Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct will be updated each summer and posted by the beginning of the school year in PowerSchool. By signing this contract, the student and Responsible Party(ies) are agreeing to abide by the policies within the Code of Conduct.

After the two-week period, tuition will be charged up to the end of the semester in which they withdrew. No transcript, report card or records will be released until all financial obligations are fulfilled.
    • If at any time it is determined by the administration that the student is not in good standing academically, and/or behaviorally, and/or financially, the administration may require the student to withdraw. 
  • All late fees and NSF fees will automatically be billed through FACTS Tuition Management. 
  • In the event that your FACTS Tuition Management account is closed, arrangements must be made with school administration to pay the remaining balance in full for your student to remain enrolled.

It is understood that enrollment for the next academic year is contingent upon the student’s satisfactory completion of the previous academic year and good financial standing with the School.
