Flexible Payment Options

Payment Options

To accommodate a variety of family budgets, we offer two different installment options depending on when you enroll:

  • One Installment (July) - 3% discount for one-time payments (if enrolled by May 31, 2024)
  • Ten Installments (July-April) (if enrolled by May 31, 2024)

10% Tuition Deposit

Once you’ve signed your tuition and enrollment agreements, your billing account will automatically be set up. Soon after, you will receive an invoice from TADS to submit the 10% non-refundable tuition deposit, which must be paid within 14 days of the date the enrollment agreement is signed. 

Payment Methods

  • Acceptable TADS payment methods are ACH and credit card.
  • A processing fee will be charged to any bank account payments processed electronically. At maximum, a family’s billing account would be charged $7 per transaction of $2,333 or above.
  • For credit card payments, there will be a processing fee, which is 3% of your overall payment.
  • Sora Schools is happy to offer a 10% discount to healthcare providers, educators, active duty military, and veterans to honor the work they do.
  • Some families can take advantage of ESA programs (or education savings accounts) in their state, 529 savings accounts, and other outside scholarships.
  • Families who wish to use their 529 savings accounts for K-12 private school tuition should work with their accountant or financial professional to determine how to best utilize the funds.
  • Sora Schools currently accepts ESA funds from a handful of states to help families pay for tuition. As legislation and ESA programs quickly evolve around the country, we will update this information accordingly as a helpful resource to prospective and current Sora families. You can read more about ESA programs here.
  • Annual tuition will be prorated based on when the family chooses to enroll.
