Hoboken Montessori School Enrollment Policies
Enrolling your child at HMS: Hoboken Montessori School admits students on February 1 for early notification, and March 1 for standard notification for the upcoming school year, and admissions continues thereafter on a rolling basis as space permits. HMS uses TADS (), a tuition management services company, to process enrollment contracts and payments for our families. For new and returning students, a tuition deposit of $1,500 is due with the enrollment contract in order to secure your child’s spot. In addition, there is a one-time new student enrollment fee of $400 per student. The tuition deposit, new student enrollment fee, and TADS fee (if applicable) are non- refundable and non-transferable. We ask parents to take this commitment seriously before enrolling, as these fees secure your child’s spot in the program and are not refundable under any circumstance. All payment plans begin on April 1. Annual materials & activities fees are due with the first payment.
Tuition Agreement: Hoboken Montessori School requires a commitment for the academic school year from September to June as the school commits to staff and resources based on contracted schedules. Therefore, HMS programs require a financial commitment to tuition, fees and contracted childcare for the full school year. There will be no refund, credit, adjustment, or remission of fees or tuition for any reason, including but not limited to absence, withdrawal, or dismissal of the student from Hoboken Montessori School except as provided in the Voluntary Withdrawal provision of the tuition agreement.
Payment Plans: Families must use TADS for all payments. TADS accepts automatic bank payments from a checking/savings account only. There is an annual TADS processing fee ranging from approximately $0 - $50 and monthly installment fees depending on the payment plan selected. Hoboken Montessori offers four payment options through TADS: one, two, three, and monthly installments (ten installments, if payments start April 1st). All tuition payments must be made by January 2nd of the present academic school year. A discount of 1% on the tuition balance is offered for the one payment plan for payments received by April 1, 2021. Late fees and returned check fees apply.
