When an account becomes 60 days overdue, the person responsible for that account will be notified by letter that the account is overdue and must be paid in full in the next 30 days. If an account becomes more than 90 days overdue the person responsible for that account will be notified by letter that the account has been deactivated and the student is restricted from participating until the account has been paid in full, or a payment plan has been agreed upon with Ms. Starr.

The price of tuition is based on an average of four classes per month and is not altered for months with holidays, etc. in which less than four classes are held. The extra lessons received during any five-week month are applied to the days the school is closed for holidays. No refunds or deductions are given if a student misses class for any reason. Make-up classes are available for any missed lessons.
WITHDRAWAL FROM CLASSES: If for any reason it becomes necessary to withdraw a child from a class, an SSD drop form must be filled out in the office. The drop form must be submitted before the first day of your child’s last month. For example: If a drop form is submitted on October 4th, November will be the student’s last month. October and November's tuition will be due. If the drop form is not filled out, the person responsible for payment will continue to be billed the regular tuition amount and will be responsible for payment. Non-attendance is not considered withdrawal from class. SSD does not require a contract, just requires notification of a child leaving a class so your spot can be opened to another potential student.
There will be a $25.00 charge for all checks returned from your bank and late fees will apply. After two returned checks, we will no longer accept checks as a method of payment.
Payment methods include Visa, Mastercard, Discover, cash, and check. We do accept payments over the phone or through email with prior notification. There are no refunds whatsoever.
