An Art Exhibit will take place at the end of every term. This is a great opportunity for the students to show their best artwork that they've worked so hard on all term long. There is a People's Choice vote at every exhibit where family and friends can vote on their favorite artwork in numerous categories. This is the culmination of our student's hard work and we love getting a chance to show the public what they've accomplished.

Tuition Costs & Fees

Registration Cost:

A $35 non-refundable registration fee is due at the beginning of every term.  This is due from every student.
Alternatively, you may register for the entire school year with a $60 non-refundable registration fee that covers both fall and spring terms.  Not only will you save $10 and fill out fewer forms, you will also be considered 'early' registered for the spring term. This option is only applicable in the fall at the beginning of the school year.

Tuition Prices for Fall 2014:

Monday School (10 week term)

1 class - $45 per month     ($112.50 total) + ($10 supply fee) = $122.50
2 classes - $85 per month     ($212.50 total) + ($15 supply fee) = $227.50
3-4 classes (full time) - $110 per month    ($275 total) + ($25 supply fee) = $300

Tuition is paid the 20th of the previous month for all students. 
The last payment will be a payment for only 2 weeks. Please adjust your tuition checks accordingly.  There are two 4-week payments due and one 2-week payment due to cover the 10 week term.  For example:  A full time student would owe a total of $300 for the term, payable as one payment or monthly.  For a term that starts in September that student would owe a $25 supply fee, plus $110 tuition on August 20th for the month of September.  On September 20 October's tuition would be due and on the 20th of October $55 (1/2) for the month of November would be due.  Students who take painting would also have a paint kit fee* in addition to the general supply fee.

*Paint kit prices are determined by type of paint, watercolor or acrylic.  Prices are listed below.

Tuition Discounts:

For full-time students only, we offer a 20% sibling discount on tuition.  A student must be taking 3-4 classes to be considered full-time. To receive the 20% discount, all students would need to be enrolled full time.  Example:  Student 1 is enrolled full time, pays full tuition.  Student 2 is enrolled full time and receives 20% tuition discount.  Any additional siblings could also qualify for the 20% discount as long as they also are enrolled full time.

All students are still required to pay the registration and supply fees, even when receiving the sibling discount.  These fees are per student, not per family.

‚ÄčSupply Fee:

A supply fee is due once at the beginning of every term for all students and must be paid with the first month's tuition.  This fee is per student, not per family.  This helps MSOA to cover the cost of non-class specific supplies that help us maintain a clean environment for the students and keep our host church clean as well  The supply fee also covers some introductory basics as well such as paper, pencils, erasers, ink, etc. There also may be additional supplies you will need to purchase for certain classes.
