Cornerstone Prep Refund Policies
The full financial obligation for registered classes takes place when a signed registration form is turned into the office/registrar. Dropping any class or withdrawal from Cornerstone does not alter the financial obligation, nor do discretionary changes in policies, procedures, or curriculum by CPA. Schedule changes do not alter the class charges billed upon registration unless additional fees are incurred for the new classes.
Tuition is billed for the year, both semesters, but a family may withdraw completely from the school for fall semester and be released from their fall and spring tuition by notifying the registrar by midnight of April 1 that they will not be attending. A family may withdraw completely from the school for spring semester and be released from their spring tuition by notifying the registrar by midnight of October 1 that they will not be returning for spring semester. These dates do not apply to dropping individual classes, only complete withdrawal.
Unused tuition may be refunded if a family experiences death in their immediate family, loss of work, job transfer out of the area, a student’s or parent’s extended illness, or for any course canceled by Cornerstone.
All policies regarding tuition apply. No refunds, partial or otherwise, will be given to students temporarily barred from participation in athletic or other extra-curricular activities due to academic or disciplinary problems. Athletic fees are due before the start of the season.
All fees are nontransferable from student to student.
Any requests for exceptions to these refund policies should be made in writing to the Cornerstone Prep School Board for consideration.
