Smart Start Academy’s Tuition Policy

Smart Start Academy requires a full academic school year (Sept-June) commitment from all of our families. If commitment is not met, security placement fee, tuition, and yearly school supplies fees are forfeited. The security placement fee is not refundable, non-transferable and will only be applied to the last month of the academic school year (June).

Parents are responsible to pay for the full program tuition chosen regardless of holidays, inclement weather and/or desired start date/student absences.
