FINANCIAL POLICY

Woodland Star School desires to be faithful in providing excellent teachers, facilities, and curriculum for learning. Additionally, it is the school’s responsibility to not compromise the integrity and respectability of the Village in relation to its financial obligations. As a part of our school community, it is the duty of each memberto pay the school tuition and other fees in a timely and respectful manner so that our school functions optimally. Before committing to Woodland Star International School, please review the school fee structure and determine if you are able to meet this obligation for the full academic year. Kindly note that fees and applicable discounts are reviewed annually and are subject to change in subsequent academic calendars.

Woodland Star expects parents to:

Pay school fees on or before the due date on their invoice, or alternatively apply for a payment plan.

Contact the school prior to the due date if the payment date requires an extension (this applies to both self-paid and employer-paid categories). Permission must be granted by the School Principal/Finance Director for an extension.

Understand that if school fees (including capital levy fees, transport fees, and lunch fees) are not paid by the due date, they will be issued an additional invoice with a 2% penalty fee for each month that the fees are late.

Understand that if school fees (including capital levy fees) are not paid within 30 days of the due date, their child(ren) may not attend class until fees have been paid (unless the school board has approved otherwise).

Accept that no transcripts, reports, or teacher evaluations will be shared until school fees have been resolved.

Be liable for the entire term’s school fees once the term has commenced, as the budget for the school year has been established, even if a parent withdraws the student(s) from the school.

Registration and enrollment of new students:

In order to confirm registration at Woodland Star International School a once-off, refundable* registration deposit of $1,000 is required. Where there are multiple students from the same family, the $1,000 is applicable per family, and not per student.

In order to secure enrollment this registration deposit must be paid annually and is deducted from the last term’s tuition fees. Alternatively the registration deposit may be rolled over annually and is deducted from remaining tuition fees upon leaving the school.

If a student’s place is canceled after payment of the registration deposit, but before the start of the upcoming term, the registration deposit is non-refundable, but all pre-paid tuition fees will be refunded.

  • processed upon request (required within 1 month of departure from WSS) and subject to all school-related fees (tuition, lunch, transport) being fully up to date
