LCCS operates on a “continuous enrollment” model with early withdrawal policies to reflect a prorated tuition refund/forgiveness schedule for students who withdraw early.

What is continuous enrollment, and what are the benefits?

Continuous enrollment means that students will be automatically reenrolled each year until graduation unless parents notify the school of their intent to withdraw. This model has been adopted by LCCS due to popular demand. LCCS families have expressed frustration with the inefficient procedure of having to fill out the same paperwork and lengthy online forms year after year for each of their children. With continuous enrollment, the process is streamlined, and you will only need to update your information as changes occur. This tells us that you want your child at LCCS until graduation (unless you choose to opt out). It also guarantees your child’s spot in the class for each subsequent year and reduces the administrative burden on school staff.

Policies for Early Withdrawal

Students who voluntarily withdraw or are dismissed from LCCS before the end of the school term will be granted a pro-rated refund/forgiveness on their tuition commitment according to the following schedule: From July 1 - August 31, students who withdraw will be refunded 75% of the total tuition; from September 1 - October 31, students who withdraw will be refunded 50% of the total tuition; from November 1 - December 31, students who withdraw will be refunded 25% of the total tuition. No tuition refund will be possible after December 31. All tuition and fees owed are due and payable at the time a student withdraws or is dismissed from LCCS. This policy is necessary as a result of the significant overhead expenses the school incurs on an annual basis when a student enrolls (teacher salaries, curriculum materials, school supplies, etc.) that do not diminish with the withdrawal of a student.

The following scenario provides an example: If the total tuition owed is $10,000 and a student withdraws on November 1, the Parent/Guardian owes a total of $7,500 (75% of tuition) regardless of their tuition payment plan.

If you would like to withdraw your student for the following school year, you must notify the Head of School and Admissions Office in writing by February 28.

Payment plan options:

Annual: pay in full (July)

Semi-annual: two payments (July and January)

Monthly: 11 payments (July through May; no June payment)

Students enrolled at LCCS after July 1 are required to provide payment to cover all missed installments of the monthly payment plan at the time of the first tuition payment.
