Corpus Christi Preschool Class Options for 2018-19 School Year

*  Commitment Fee:  The Preschool commitment fee is $50 (non-refundable) per student and is not applied to tuition.  The commitment fee must be paid to complete registration and to retain admission priority.  Note:  This fee is waived for those families also registering students in K-8.

*  Financial commitment for a school year begins in July and ends in June of the following year, to correspond with the school’s budget cycle.  Monthly rates may vary slightly depending on students start or end dates.  For example - if your child is registered in late August, the 12 monthly payments will  be averaged over the remaining 10 months of the cycle (thus increasing your monthly commitment).
