Prices are fixed and are not open to negotiation. When it comes to payment frequency or terms of payment, they may be flexible upon approval.
Bronze and Silver Packages: Payment in full is always required.
Gold and Platinum Packages: Payment in full is always preferred, but because these plans require a greater investment, more flexibility is offered in the form of payment plans. There is a one-payment option, a two-payment option and a six-payment option for both the Gold and Platinum Packages. Payment must be received in full before the letters of recommendation are sent to schools. Families that pay in full receive a discount of almost 15%. Families that pay within 60 days receive a discount of almost 9%.
Payment for individual services must be received in full before services are performed.
Payment can be accepted by cash, check, money order, Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.
If you choose to pay with your Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover card, you will receive an invoice by email, and you will enter your credit card payment through the Venmo app. There is no fee for bank account payments and most debit cards via Venmo; however, Venmo does charge a 3% fee to submit the payment using a credit card, which will be added to our regular pricing. You can make payments through Paypal for which a 3% surcharge will also be added to our prices. We also accept payments by cash or money order.
Credit cards are accepted for payments in full and for initial deposits when a client opts for a payment plan.
If you are using a payment plan, any future payments must be paid by submitting post-dated checks. These must be dated at the time the contract is started and submitted at the time the family commits to work with us. If a check bounces, the family is responsible for paying any fees generated by this and they will lose their ability to pay by personal checks in the future.
If a family wishes to upgrade to another package, at any time, the price difference will have to be paid in one lump sum. If upgrading to the Gold Package, the difference will be paid based on the rate of $3,595. This approach could cost as much as $500 more than if a family had committed to the Gold Package initially at the $3,095 rate. Payment must be submitted in full at the time of the conversion.
