学费和书费

斯巴达中文学校每年六月开放学生注册,每次注册一个学年,一学年总课时30次课。每年的学费和各年级相应书费同时公布在学校网站上(见上图)。另有$20注册费,但在八月注册截止日期(具体日期见入学信息)之前注册即可免除。
 

Tuition and textbook fee:

Student registration at Spartan Chinese School starts every June, and the students register yearly for a school year, which includes 30 classes totally. The most up-to-date tuition and textbook fee for all grades will be posted on our website when the registration starts. There is also a $20 registration fee, which is waived if registration is received by the registration deadline in August (please refer to Admission information for the date).

 

延迟注册

  1. 请尽量在每年八月注册截止日期(具体日期见入学信息)之前注册,方便我们及时分配班级、安排老师、配发教材。如果晚于截止日期注册,则不能免除$20注册费,但我们会尽快安排班级和尽量配发教材。

  2. 如果注册时学校已经开始上课,书本费按标准收取,学费则按实际上课次数缴纳。如:每学年30次课,因注册延迟,错过了前2次课,则收取学费=学年学费/30x(30-2)。|
     

Late registration:

  1. Registration before the deadline in August (please refer to Admission information for the date) is strongly recommended. If registration is received after the deadline, the $20 registration fee cannot be waived, but we will arrange class placement and textbooks, if purchased from the School and available in our stock, as soon as possible.

  2. If registration is later than the first day of school, the textbook fee will be charged as listed, and the tuition will be prorated. For example: There are 30 classes in the school year, the first 2 classes have been missed due to late registration, then the prorated tuition = school year tuition / 30 x (30 - 2).

  2. There are two methods to pay the invoice:

    • Pay with Zelle: Before the day of textbook pickup, pay to spartancs.treasurer@gmail.com via Zelle. Please note the Student’s name and grade as a message attached to Zelle payment. ​

      • Note: 

      1. Please make sure the email address is spelled correctly, and after entering the email address, the receiver is found to be “enrolled with Zelle as Great Lakes Chinese Center”.
