Holy Cross Island School began accepting applications from currently enrolled students and their siblings on Monday, January 7th. We will accept all other enrollment applications beginning Monday, January 21st.
New this coming year is an expansion of our Afternoon Allstars! We hope to offer separate classes for our 3s and 4s this coming year. Please note that if we do not receive the minimum enrollment by age for Afternoon Allstars, we will combine the ages into one class.
Our placement policy is as follows: Priority placement is given to returning students and siblings of returning students for applications received by Friday, January 18th. After placing the returning students and their siblings, remaining openings will be filled next by church members, then to families on the 2018-19 wait list, and then offered to the general public. If at any point there are more applicants than openings, a lottery will be used to decide placement. Please note that the director of HIS School has the discretion to balance the classes by gender.
Registration fee payments are as follows: A non-refundable registration fee (equal to 1 month tuition) must be paid in full in order to reserve your child’s place in the program. This non-refundable fee does not apply to tuition. Please do not submit payment for registration fees until you have been notified of your child’s placement. Acceptance letters are sent via email. Registration fees are due within two weeks of acceptance. For Extended Day, a separate non-refundable registration fee (equal to 1 month extended day tuition) is due to secure a child's spot in our Extended Day program. We highly encourage you to register for Extended Day at this time as this program is very popular and fills up quickly.
Tuition payment options are as follows: Tuition is paid either in full or in monthly payments. Monthly tuition payments will only be accepted by automatic bank draft from your checking/savings account, or by established recurring payments with your debit/credit card on the Holy Cross website. Families wishing to pay monthly will be charged a 3% processing fee. Families wishing to pay their child's tuition in full will receive a 5% discount for early tuition payment. Sibling discounts no longer apply when opting for the early tuition discount. Also, these discounts do not apply to the Extended Day program. All enrolled families are required to either pay in full or set up one of these two forms of payments (monthly or annual) no later than August 1, 2019.
Sibling Discounts are as follows: Families with multiple children attending HIS School receive a 10% tuition discount on each subsequent child after the oldest. This discount will not apply to registration fees. Discounts do not apply to the Extended Day program.
Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your child’s preschool experience! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Marlo Greene, your Daniel Island HIS School Director at 205-541-1243.
