Tuition and Fees

Tuition payments are handled through the WCA office:

  • You will receive a tuition estimate via e-mail by May 31.
  • A non-refundable tuition deposit of $500 per family is due by June 15.  This will reserve your place for the coming year and be credited toward your total account balance.
  • All invoices will be sent via e-mail, and payments can be made online via the link or by cash/check in the office.  No credit card or PayPal payments are accepted at this time.
  • There are three payment options: one bulk payment in August,  two bulk payments in August and January, or monthly installments (10: Aug-May or 11: Jul-May).  A 2% early pay discount is offered for bulk payments (if no other discount or financial aid is already received).
  • For families with more than one student enrolled, a discount of $400 per student is awarded for each student after the first.
