We are pleased to offer the FACTS Tuition Payment Plan program

 

Ellison tuition and fee payments are made through automatic payment deduction through the Facts Tuition Management service.  The FACTS Tuition Payment Plan is used by many schools locally and over 7,000 schools nationally and we are proud to be one of them.  Please read below for details regarding The Ellison School’s tuition payment plans via Facts Management.

 

One of the universal challenges in education is achieving a balance between our educational mission and financial stability.  Since the stability of our school and the quality of its programs are of the utmost importance, we are always seeking ways to make improvements to benefit everyone. We have partnered with FACTS Management Company to help us manage our tuition payment program.  By taking advantage of the security and convenience of payment processing and information technology offered by FACTS, we remain committed to this goal.  The program offers greater efficiency and financial stability for our school while providing convenience to our families.  With FACTS, the school maintains decision-making control. 

As always, we will continue to work with families should special circumstances or “hardship” cases arise during the school year.
