All students and their families are required to maintain a current account balance for all tuition and fees. In rare cases and under extenuating circumstances, flexible payment plans may be created with the Finance Office at Verbum Dei. Once a payment plan is created, the student and parents/guardians must sign a contract verifying participation in the plan.
The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, sex or national and/or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies and practices, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs, although certain athletic leagues and other programs may limit participation, and some archdiocesan schools operate as single sex schools. While the school does not discriminate against students with special needs, a full range of services may not always be available to them. Decisions concerning the admission and continued enrollment of a student in the school are based upon the student’s emotional, academic and physical abilities and the resources available to the school in meeting the student’s needs.
