Financial Details:  

Salisbury Christian School is a non-profit, private, Christian school run entirely on the fees and tuition of the student body, and the very much appreciated gifts of the friends of Christian education. Such gifts are, of course, tax deductible. However, money paid for tuition and curriculum is not tax deductible.

Tuition for Salisbury Christian School is calculated on a ten month schedule.  There are ten monthly tuition payments with the first payment due on August 15th and the final tuition payment due on May15th.  Billing statements  are available online on the 25th of each preceeding month, and paid at the school during normal business hours.  Bills due on non school days will be due the next school day. i.e.  Bills due on Saturday will be due on the following Monday if school is in session.  

Those who qualify for less than a 100% Opportunity Scholarship will be billed their remaining balance.  This balance is nonrefundable and is based on the rates submitted to the Opportunity Scholarship at the beginning of the school year.
