Tuition at Great Hearts Christos

Arizona and Great Hearts Christos offer several options for financial aid, to keep this education within the reach of all families. We work to keep tuition costs low for families, creating a unique private educational community that brings all families together around our Christian-classical mission. The required tuition will be greater than the amount offered by the Arizona ESA; however, lower income families will be able to apply for tuition reductions, allowing access to Great Hearts by all families.

  • A late fee of $25.00 will be assessed if tuition payments are received after the 5th of the month.
  • All electronic payment declines will be charged a fee of $50 per occurrence.
  • Accounts that are delinquent 60 days will result in a withdrawal of the student until the account is brought current or arrangements and a written payment plan has been approved through the administration. If your account is suspended, a $50.00 reinstatement fee will be assessed.
  • When a student is voluntarily withdrawn from Great Hearts Christos for any reason, at any time, (June-July) the parent must notify Administration in writing at least one (1) week prior to the withdrawal date. A formal Withdrawal Form must be completed, signed, and submitted.  An email message to Administration from the parent’s email address on file is an acceptable written form of notification to the school.
  • After official notification has been received, tuition will be calculated through the week plus one full month. After this consideration, a tuition credit balance paid by the parent may only be refunded if there are no other outstanding balances owed for any tuition, other school fees, or any debt owed on any account.
  • Parents have a contractual obligation to satisfy any outstanding accounts. In the event of default due to nonpayment, the account will be liable for, but not limited to, all attorney fees, court costs, and interest at the rate of 22% per annum.
  • Accounts delinquent 60 days may be referred to outside collection agencies, will be reported to national credit bureaus, and a surcharge of 40% will be added to the outstanding balances to cover the collection cost. Should it become necessary for GH Christos to retain an attorney or collection agency to secure payment of any amount due, the debtor is responsible for paying all attorney’s fees, court costs, and collection agency charges. Late fees may continue to accrue monthly or be assessed as a late fee when accounts are transferred between agencies until the balance is paid in full.
