Tuition, Fees and Billing

The tuition is paid over ten months. Tuition and Fees Tuition payments are processed through FACTS, a tuition management company. Each family signs a contract with FACTS authorizing automatic withdrawals from the family’s bank account. The contract is a ten month plan, August through May. The monthly payment plan is not correlated to the school calendar. Monthly tuition payments are considered delinquent upon funds rejection from the bank. If the tuition bank draft is returned for funds rejection, a fee of $25 will be assessed. Families may choose not to participate in the automatic withdrawal program by paying the full year’s tuition and the activity fee by August 5th. Families who pay the full year’s tuition upfront will receive a $100 discount per student on the total.

Tuition reduction grants may be available to those who are unable to afford the full tuition expense. Families who require such assistance are to request a financial aid form from the school office.


Current CHS students must re-register each year. A space will be guaranteed only if the student registers before the assigned deadline (normally in March) and pays the registration fee. There is no application fee for returning CHS students. Students who have demonstrated a pattern of poor effort, disruptive behavior, or a negative attitude may not be allowed to re-register.


There is no book fee; all textbooks are the property of CHS. Students are expected to maintain books in good repair and return them at the end of the semester. Fines will be assessed for lost or damaged books.

Health Records

All students attending CHS must be current on immunizations and free from infectious diseases. Certificates of immunization and a completed health record sheet must be on file in the school office by the first day of school.
