Lower School Financial Information
Middle and Upper School Financial Information
We are pleased to inform you that The Bolles School recently partnered with peerTransfer to offer a simple international tuition payment solution. We ask that you send all future payments through peerTransfer at bolles.peertransfer.com. We are confident that you will find peerTransfer’s process secure, easy, and less expensive.
With peerTransfer, you are offered excellent foreign exchange rates, allowing you to pay in your home currency (in most cases) and save a significant amount of money as compared to traditional banks. Also, peerTransfer captures all your student information at the time of payment, which ensures peace-of-mind that your payment will be properly credited to your account in a timely manner.
We are excited to offer you this new solution to help lower your total payment and simplify the process for you.
TERMS OF ENROLLMENT
A student is entered for one year and the parent or guardian assumes responsibility for the payment of all amounts due for the entire session whether the student be suspended, dismissed, or voluntarily withdrawn. If the student leaves the school, the parent or guardian understands and agrees that the deposit is non-refundable and that no part of the fees paid to the school above the deposit shall be refunded after April 30, 2013. Any unpaid balance for the entire year is due and payable to The Bolles School. Any notice of withdrawal must be received in writing.
The Bolles School assumes no responsibility for the collection of amounts due from any person or agency other than the parent or guardian who signs the enrollment agreement.
The charges listed are estimates of expected costs. The school reserves the right to adjust these costs as circumstances warrant. Charges for support services must be paid monthly. Prompt payment assures uninterrupted cash flow to vendors and suppliers. A finance charge of 1.5% per month (18% per annum) is applied to the unpaid support service balance and to those tuition amounts that are delinquent; minimum finance charge is $.50. Mastercard, American Express, and Discover Credit cards may be used for all tuition payment plans through My Backpack online; however, please note that a 2.5% convenience fee is applied for each transaction.
Independent education is not funded by tuition alone. Voluntary support is a key ingredient in determining the vitality of the physical and human resources found on most independent school campuses. The Bolles School is not unique in this regard. Gifts from parents, trustees, alumni, and corporate friends have made possible our success in both capital campaigns (for major construction and endowment) and the Annual Fund, which supplements the operating budget each year. We believe that each family will come to appreciate the impact of these traditional forms of support and will desire to participate in the effort as a volunteer worker and direct contributor to these needs.
