Payment Policy

Registration and Facility 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 fees are not paid within one week of registering for classes, your child(ren)’s registration may be canceled and classes will be released back into the system.

The Registration Fee is $45 per family, per school year if registering before July 15th. The registration fee increases to $65 after July 15th. 

The Facility Fee is $15 per child, per school year for up to four children.

Registration and Facility Fees may be paid via PayPal, by clicking on your "Balance" in your FHC profile when you're logged in. Registration and Facility Fees are non-refundable. 

Tuition is paid directly to teachers. Teachers are considered independent tutors and are paid directly by parents. 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.) Please see the Tuition Chart at the end of this document for details.

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 us 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. 
  • Near the end of the Fall semester, students may have the opportunity to add/drop a class effective at the start of the January semester. Requests will be granted on a first come, first served basis and only as class limits allow. Submitting an add/drop request will not alter a student’s current schedule if desired changes are unable to be accommodated. Communication about this process as well as appropriate deadlines will be emailed to all families in November.

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.

Volunteer Opt Out Fee  The choice to opt out of volunteer responsibilities is provided for those who work full-time, those with physical or health limitations, and those with strict childcare limitations.

Cost to Opt Out: $65 per semester

Deadline to Opt Out: First Class Day of Semester (Aug & Jan) - Families will not be permitted to opt out past this deadline, and must fulfill the commitments for which they have signed up. If you have not registered for your volunteer shifts by the first day of classes, you will be charged the Volunteer Opt Out Fee.

How to Opt Out: Please select Volunteer Opt Out on the SignUp Genius Registration, then pay $65 via PayPal to [email protected].
