Financial Policies

It is our intention to keep the program costs at a minimum and to be fiscally responsible. Therefore, PATH requires each family to participate in a volunteer capacity. PATH does not offer any discounted tuition for anyone, including members of the PATH leadership team. Teachers’ children will have free tuition only for courses they are teaching, in which their children are enrolled. The exclusion applies to tuition only. The teacher will pay any other costs associated with the course. After Orientation, all tuition that has been paid is non-refundable.

  • If you wish to use the installment payment plan, approximately 1/3 of your tuition is due at Orientation.  If this payment is received after Orientation, there will be a $50 late fee added to your account, and your student will not be able to attend the first class.
  • The remaining 2/3 of your tuition is due on October 15 (1/3) and February 15 (1/3) respectively.
  • The tuition fee includes the teacher's salary, supply fee, and honorarium.
  • Parents will purchase books/material needed for each course.
  • In appreciation to the host church, each family has the opportunity to pay a facility honorarium, which is a flat fee of $25 per class. This is included in your tuition fee so that PATH can write one check to the church.
  • Tuition/salary for a course is based on 8 paying students.  If a class does not populate, then PATH reserves the right to:

1) offer the parents the option of paying additional tuition per student to keep the course,
2) ask the teacher to accept less pay,
3) a combination of the above two options,
4) cancel the course.

  • Because the teacher contracts are signed in August, based on enrollment, if, for some reason your child needs to withdraw after Orientation, you will be required to pay for the full annual cost of the course(es).
