Some schools will still charge you for months of tuition after you withdraw your child. Some even require payment for the entire year. We teach our students that justice is granting and taking only what is earned, and we strive to operate Challenger School in a just manner. That's why we charge a daily rate for days your child is enrolled.
For example, if your child starts on the 15th, your tuition begins on the 15th. Conversely, if you withdraw your child on the 15th, your tuition ends on the 15th. An exception to this is an enrollment withdrawn after July 31, when the minimum tuition amount hasn't been reached yet. (We require the minimum tuition, which is less than a monthly tuition payment, because we commit resources for teachers, supplies, classroom balancing, etc. for the academic year based on enrollment commitments as of July 31.)
To preserve our independence, we do not accept public funds. However, as a non-profit entity we accept private, tax-deductible donations from those wishing to contribute to Challenger's educational mission.
At Challenger, an application fee and tuition fund your child's education. We don't require any additional money, time, or service commitments.
