2017-18 Academic Year
Classes begin September 5:

  1. An annual registration fee will be charged based on the size of the household and total income. This fee is non refundable and covers all registration and testing materials. The fee ranges from $30-$200, per school year. Sometimes, in order to qualify for a reduced cost, non-earning members of the household will be asked to sign a Zero Income Affidavit, certifying that they do not earn income. Without proof of household income, the registration fee will be $200 for the school year. Registration fees may be paid with cash, check, or debit/credit card.
  2. All students must re-register each school year.
