PDS does not accept “cash” payments for tuition.
There is a Late Payment Fee of $50 if payment of the account balance is not received on or before the scheduled due date. Any balances more than 30 days past due will accrue interest at the rate of 1.0% per month.
There is a $50 Returned Payment fee for any check or direct payment (ACH) debit returned unpaid by any financial institution.
Delinquencies of more than 30 days may result in the suspension of the student treated as an unexcused absence. A boy with a delinquent account may not attend school in the next trimester without the written permission of the Headmaster, and any such absences will be treated as unexcused absences. A boy may not graduate with an unpaid balance or have any school record or recommendation sent to another school with an unpaid balance. Report cards may be held for boys with delinquent balances, and parent access to on-line grades may also be denied. Additionally, re-enrollment for any subsequent school year may not occur until all outstanding balances with respect to earlier school years shall have been paid in full.
If the school shall elect to take legal action to collect any unpaid balance, the person financially responsible for the student agrees to pay all expenses incurred (including, but not limited to, attorney’s fees, collection expenses and court costs, as well as pre-judgment and post-judgment interest).
PDS offers annual, semi-annual, quarterly and monthly payment plans. Contact the Business Office for more details.
Since the enrollment contract obligates parents for the full year’s tuition, we strongly recommend the Tuition Refund Plan in the unlikely event that a boy may leave PDS during the school year. Details of this insurance program and its cost will be emailed to all parents annually. *Please note that the Tuition Refund Plan does not become effective until the student has been in attendance for the first 14 days of the school year.
Enrollment for any trimester is contingent upon all tuition and fees having been paid when due. Charges for tuition and fees are for the full year. No reduction or remission of tuition and fees can be allowed for absence, withdrawal, or dismissal. No student may enter the school until first trimester tuition and fees are paid, and no student may go from one trimester to the next with an unpaid account.
Tuition for the 2019–2020 school year will be set by the Board of Trustees and announced by mid-December 2018 or at the latest early January of 2019.
