Option A: Tuition is paid in full by July 31st.
Option B: Tuition is paid in two installments:
Due on July 31st: 60 percent of tuition cost
Due on December 1st: 40 percent of tuition cost
Option C: Tuition is paid in 10 month installments:
Due on the 1st of each month (May through February)
For families accepted during the rolling admission cycle, the monthly installments can still be utilized, but the first monthly payment must account for all monthly payments not made.
The Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) is used to insure that the School receives tuition dollars and to protect families from paying their full net tuition costs in cases of unforeseen withdraw from Saint James. Families using the TRP in effect pay a prorated net tuition cost if their student is required to withdraw. TRP is mandatory for Option B and Option C. TRP is optional for Option A. TRP is sold at 4% of your tuition cost.
