FINANCIAL POLICIES FOR MARANATHA ADVENTIST SCHOOL

Tuition for Moberly Seventh-day Adventist Church constituents consists of ten equal payments of $240 for the first child, $230 for the second child, $220 for the third child and $200 for any child thereafter.  Total tuition for a year is $2400, $2300, $2200 and $2000 per child respectively. 

Tuition for non-constituent students consists of ten equal payments of $255 for the first child, $245 for the second child, $235 for the third child and $215 for any child thereafter.  Total tuition for a year is $2550, $2450, $2350, and $2150 per child respectively. 
A registration fee of $220 per child is also charged.  The minimum amount payable at registration is the first month's tuition plus one-half of the registration fee.  Those who wish to pay the entire year in advance will receive a 5% discount on tuition.  Those who wish to pay a semester in advance will receive a 3% discount on tuition.

There will be a registration each semester.  First semester registration will be at the school and second semester registration will be via mail-in forms.  All past due accounts must be paid prior to either registration.  If payment is not received or other arrangements made by semester registration, the principal will not be allowed to permit the child to attend school until arrangements are made.

Each family account will receive a monthly billing statement showing current charges, credits and balance due.  Payment is expected by the 30th of the month. Accounts more than 30 days old will be considered by the Board for further action as the situation warrants.  Accounts more than 60 days old will be sent a letter from the Chairman of the Board requesting that payment or other arrangements be made within 15 days.  If payment or other arrangements have not been made by the deadline, the principal will not be allowed to permit the student(s) to attend school until such time as those arrangements are finalized.
 
In order to continue offering Christian Education as a viable alternative to Public Education, the Maranatha Adventist School Board believes it is important for each family to pay the tuit­ion fees in accordance with the policies set forth above. However, if a family has financial dif­ficulty, the Worthy Student Program may be avail­able to assist them with a portion of the tuit­ion fees.
 
Each family will be expected to pay a minimum of one-half the monthly tuition. Failure to make the minimum monthly payment may result in the forfeiture of worthy student assistance or the Board requesting that the student not attend school until the payment has been made.
 
The Worthy Student Program may be available to constituent fami­lies with students attending Maranatha Adventist School. A family wishing to participate in this program should contact the School Board Chairman, Teacher, Principal, Treasurer or Pastor.
 
Report cards and/or diplomas will not be issued at the end of the school year unless all fees have been paid.
 
Any arrangements differing from the above pol­icies must be made with the School Board. Requests may be submitted through the School Board Chairman, Teacher, Principal, Pastor, or Treasurer.
