Tuition Policies

Golden Pond School establishes tuition as an annual amount for a school year (September – June). Our standard payment schedule is semi-annual. Alternatively, tuition may be paid in full or monthly. An administrative fee of $10.00 per month will be added for monthly payments.

Tuition Deposit

A deposit of 10% of the total tuition is required for each child upon acceptance of the Enrollment Agreement. This non-refundable deposit is only applied to the June 2017 tuition.

Payment Options

  • Single payment of entire remaining annual tuition due on or before August 01, 2018.
  • Two payments of 50% of annual tuition with the first payment due on or before August 01, 2018 and the second on January 1, 2019.
  • Nine (9) remaining tuition payments with each payment due by the first business day of each month beginning with August 01, 2018.

Activity Fees

We collect an activity fee each year, which covers our specialist programs including Spanish, music and art, as well as any on/off campus field trips and bus transportation throughout the year. The activity fee is $250.00 for our two day programs, $275.00 for our three day programs,$300.00 for K-3rd Extended School, $325.00 for our five day preschool programs and $350.00 for our Private Kindergarten. Each fee is collected in two equal installments, payable on or before August 01, 2018 and January 1, 2019.

Snow Insurance

GPS programs primarily follow the Loudoun County Public School calendar and closing/delay policy. Parents can elect to purchase Snow Insurance for their Stay & Play, Extended School Kindergarten and 1st-3rd Grade students. Only students with Snow Insurance will follow the Federal Government’s unscheduled leave/telework policy for inclement weather closing/delays allowing them to attend school when LCPS is closed. Annual Snow Insurance is $300.00 for Stay & Play/Private Kindergarten Extended Day students, and $500.00 for LCPS Kindergarten-3rd grade Extended Day students. Snow Insurance is collected in two equal installments, payable on or before August 01, 2018 and January 1, 2019.

Lunch Programs

Golden Pond School offers a balanced and nutritious lunch to students in applicable programs. Students may opt to bring a healthy packed lunch from home, but please keep in mind that Golden Pond is a NUT-FREE school.

Sibling Discount

GPS offers a 10% sibling discount to our families who have more than one student attending GPS in the same school year. Qualifying students must reside the same household. The discount applies to the lesser of the tuitions. If three siblings attend GPS at the same time, there is a 10% discount on the two lesser tuitions. The sibling discount does not apply to the (non-refundable) tuition deposit.
