OUR REFUND POLICY

This refund policy sets out how The Montessori School of Raleigh processes refunds if applicable.

Application Fee: Non-Refundable
New Family Fee: Non-Refundable
Tuition Deposit: Non-Refundable

Advance Tuition Payments are Non-Refundable unless the Tuition Refund Protection Plan has been selected and the premium is paid no later than August 1, or within the first 30 days of enrollment, whichever comes first.

The School’s Tuition Refund Protection Plan provides protection from financial loss due to the unanticipated withdrawal of Student (required or voluntary) from the School or the program after August 1, or absence of more than 31 consecutive school days. The cost of this plan is 2% of the Fee and is due August 1. Participation is optional, however, failure to participate in the TRPP will result in the forfeit of all tuition and fees paid or due in the event of Student’s unanticipated early withdrawal.

Under the TRPP, if Student should withdraw, be required to withdraw, or fail to attend after August 1, a portion of the unused Fee will be refunded as follows: 100% of the unused Fee will be returned in the event of withdrawal for medical reasons as certified by a licensed physician; 65% of the unused Fee will be returned in the event of withdrawal required by the School; and 60% of the unused Fee will be returned in the event of withdrawal by Parent or Student. Refunds will be mailed within eight weeks after a Student leaves School. The unused portion of the Fee is calculated as the Fee minus the Tuition Deposit, multiplied by the percentage of the School year remaining on a per diem basis.

Studios Fees: Are fully refundable up to two weeks prior to the first day of the Studio session or upon cancellation of the Studio offering due to low enrollment. A 50% refund will be submitted with cancellation requests made up to one week prior to the first day of the Studio session. No refunds will be given less than one week prior to the first day of the session.

SummerScape Fees: Are fully refundable prior to May 1st. Withdrawals after May 1st are subject to a $40 fee.
Refund of camp fees as a result of withdrawal during the week of camp will be pro-rated and charged a $40 fee.
