A $10.00 late fee will assess on the 10th of the month. If payment is not made with the school office, further delay may jeopardize the child’s enrollment at the school.

For more than one GHCA student in a family, we offer a discount on the tuition ONLY, of 10% for each additional child. Other fees remain the same for each child.
