Parents – Financial Responsibilities

 

An agreement to meet financial obligations: All parents are required to sign a Financial Agreement for each school year. An appeal process is available for families with challenging financial situations.

 

Tuition: Tuition payments may be made on a annual, semester or monthly basis. Monthly payments require an enrollment in FACTS, an automatic checking account deduction program.

 

Fees: Regular fees may include registration, classroom supply fees, athletic fees, and lunch program costs (if selected).

 

Curriculum and materials: Parents are responsible for the purchase of all curriculum and materials. If your child is enrolled in the Academic Program, you will receive a textbook list along with a list of contacts for purchasing supplies. ICS also offers a textbook website for the purchase and sale of used curriculum at the beginning and end of each school year.

 

Uniforms: ICS has a uniform dress code that requires the purchase of monogrammed shirts and outerwear and coordinating pants, shorts or skirts.

 

Fundraising support: The very nature of ICS requires that a majority of participants are one-income families, with one parent choosing to be at home to facilitate the home education portion of the program. In order to keep tuition levels affordable for these families and still deliver excellence in education, fundraising is a vital part of our fiscal responsibility. Parents are required to help with at least one fundraising event during the school year with the goal of raising $500 per family.
