TADS Tuition Online Enrollment

In order to best meet budget needs, and to best facilitate tuition payments, we are requiring all families to sign up for “AUTOPAY” through TADS. This will allow for timely tuition payments, which are necessary for meeting budget requirements. We will only make an exception to this requirement if a family contacts Paul Berry and shows just cause for an alternate payment process.

TADS will be offering three options for tuition payment:

  1. One payment, full tuition paid by July 25th (2% tuition discount if paid in full by July 25th)
  2. Two payments, due August 1 and January 30
  3. 10 or 11 Month payment plans

You will still be able to choose from some options for the monthly payment – the beginning of the month or the second half of the month.
