“Yet even now,” says the LORD, “return to me with your whole heart…” Joel 2:12
THE LENTEN JOURNEY BEGINS with two small, but amazing, words:” Even now.” God doesn’t merely say, “Return to me.” He says, “Even now, return to me,” as in “Even now, after being away for years. Even now, after everything you’ve said and done. Even though you have given up hope.” This is an invitation without reservation. Join us as we journey together.
Please continue to spread the word about our school community. We are always enrolling!

Rules and Reasons
RULES : Tuition payments are due the 15th of every month. If balance owed is late or not paid, Smart Tuition charges a $40 late fee. Every month the balance is not paid IN FULL, the account will incur a late fee until the account becomes current with the total amount owed.
REASONS : Timely and complete tuition payments are part of the Registration contract signed by each family when enrolling students. The school is unable to “waive” late fees from Smart Tuition as they are automatically deducted from the school’s collected sum, and the school is unable to absorb these costs for families.
