The Portland School of Experiential Education calculates rates based on the number of days your child attends school per week and on whether they attend half or full days. For your convenience, our tuition is divided into twelve equal monthly installments. The first and last month’s tuition are due at the time of enrollment. Tuition is collected on the last school day prior to the first of each month or on the first of each month if the first is a school day and will accrue a late charge of $15 per day if not paid by the due date. Families with more than one enrolled child at pdXed will receive a 10% reduction in tuition costs for their eldest enrolled child. pdXed reserves the right to change rates. Parents will receive written notice of any rate changes 60 days prior to the changes taking effect. pdXed requires that families give 60 days written notice prior to changing their enrollment status. Tuition is collected monthly and pdXed does not prorate tuition.
The Portland School of Experiential Education bases its program budget off of expected tuition collection and therefore offers no refunds due to inclement weather, staff or child illness, school closures, holidays, vacations or power outages.
