Payment Policy

Registration and fees are due upon registering your child for classes, and full payment is required to hold your place. Registration and fees are non-refundable. If you have not registered for your volunteer shifts by the first day of classes, you will be charged the Volunteer Opt-Out Fee. 

Tuition is paid directly to teachers. Each semester is 16 weeks, and the tuition is divided into 4 payments per semester. Tuition and supply fees for First Semester are due the first day of classes in August, September, October, and November (no tuition paid in December.) Tuition and supply fees for Second Semester are due the first day of classes in January, February, March, and April (no tuition paid in May.) 

Late and Missing Tuition Payments
Please pay teachers on time. Consistently or egregiously late (greater than 2 weeks) tuition payments may result in FHC restricting your students from FHC-sponsored activities, classes, and future registrations. If you’re having trouble paying your tuition, please reach out to Lucia Silva at [email protected]

Class Registrations and Changes

  • If you choose to change or drop a class after the first week, you will be refunded the tuition for that class. Supply fees will not be refunded (as supplies will have already been purchased with the assumption that your student would be attending the whole term).
  • If you wish to change or drop a class within the first 2-3 weeks of the semester, you will owe the teacher the supply fee for the class and the first month’s tuition. 
  • If you wish to change or drop a class after the first three weeks, you are responsible for paying the remainder of the tuition and supply fees for the semester. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis for situations such as loss of job, death in the family, out-of-area move, etc. 

Missed Classes
FHC may cancel classes due to severe weather. We monitor the Clarke County school system, and will typically cancel classes when their schools are closed. Tuition is not refunded for classes missed due to weather. 

No reimbursement or credit will be provided to families for classes their children miss due to absences.
