Our Policies:
Registration Fee

There is a non-refundable $25 annual registration fee per child per school year, payable at the time of the registration.

 

Payment Schedule*
  • For students enrolled in 1 or 2 classes at AlphaMinds Academy, tuition is due in full on or before the first day of classes.  

  • For students enrolled in 3 or more classes and for families with two or more children enrolled in 2 or more of our classes, tuition may be paid in 2 installments per session.

  • Payment plan can be created upon request.

* If you are unable to make a payment, please contact us to see if a private arrangement can be made. 

 

Forms of Payment

We accept cash or checks. Please make checks payable to AlphaMinds Academy and indicate your child's name on the check. We apologize but we currently cannot accept credit cards. 

 

Absence Policy

There will be no "excused classes", and payments for missed classes will not be returned. Special cases (relocation, long-lasting illness, etc.) will be discussed on a case-by-case basis. If you have missed a class, the teacher will provide the classroom work and homework assignments. The teacher will also be available to discuss the material with you and your child. Parents can schedule a makeup class in either the Jersey City or Hoboken branch, subject to availability. Students can attend an unlimited number of makeup classes during the current semester in the same subject or related subjects (subject to availability). However, only one makeup class can be carried over into the next semester (the make up class cannot be used as the "credit" towards the next session).

 

Classes Cancelation

In the event of inclement weather, information about school closing will be posted on our site in the "announcement" section, an e-mail will be sent to all parents, and a voice message will be recorded on the phone number for our branch which is 201-844-8535. We will make every attemp to schedule makeup classes but if no makeup class is scheduled, parents will receive credit for the missed class(es) towards the next semester. 

 

Books and Supplies:

Each child will need to buy textbooks (mainly for math, art and foreign language classes). AlphaMinds Academy provides books directly from distributors at a very good discounted price.

The estimated expense for Art and Science classes supplies is $20/semester. 

 

Catching Up and Private Tutoring

In case a student needs help catching up when starting a new class at AlphaMinds Academy mid-semester, we can arrange one on one tutoring at an additional fee. On average, in order for the student to catch up and feel comfortable in the class, one hour is needed for every 2-3 classes missed from the start of the school year. Private and semi-private classes can also be arranged on an ongoing basis at the parents request, based on teacher and space availability. Please contact us for rates. 

 

Refund Policy
  • No refunds will be issued for the classes already attended.

  • If you withdraw your child within the first three weeks from registration, we will refund 100% of your remaining tuition minus a $25 processing fee; no refund will be issued after the child has attended the first three weeks of classes.

  • In case of a move out of the area mid semester, AlphaMinds Academy requires two weeks notice after which we will issue a full refund for the remaining classes minus $25 processing fee.
