Financial Information 2020-2021
Highlands Latin Paradise Valley Fee Agreement
We have intentionally kept our fees extremely low to make this beautiful classical education available for all. It is designed to be enough to cover the costs of the facilities and supplies and no more. Please remember to pay on time so we can meet our financial obligations.
All families are expected to return a completed fee agreement with either their enrollment or re-enrollment forms and fees.
All enrollments and re-enrollments are pending until fee agreement is received by the deadline stated. After the deadline, families who have not turned in the agreement may be placed on a waiting list.
Serving at Co-op
Our co-op is parent led. Parents who feel led to teach will be assigned an area to lead where our co-op has a need for and they feel their talents will be best used.
Those who do not feel led to teach may help the teachers as assistants. You do not have to teach! Don’t worry! We understand that not all parents feel excited about teaching children that are not their own. But we do need help! Teacher’s assistants are incredibly valuable and having families at co-op together creates a strong community.
Class fees cover the cost of using the facility, all school supplies needed by our co-op for in-class use, and every family gets a yearbook to remember the year.
$365 per child (payments available)
Rates are for classes on Mondays from 8am-12pm, (including lunch/recess from 12pm-1pm). In K-2nd we cover all subjects except art and composer study (which is a separate after school class: “Art and Composer Study Class”). In 3rd grade and up we cover 7 subjects in the Memoria Press curriculum guide in the 4 hour time period. To see what subjects are covered go to the menu and select Highlands Latin Paradise Valley > Academics > and select the schedule you would like to view.

We desire all to be able to participate in co-op. Scholarships are limited. Please contact Pauline to inquire.
Full Year Obligation
The facility fees and supply fees are divided amongst the students and done so to make the overall cost be as low as possible. Families that commit and then quit leave us in a bad financial position. So that is why the fee agreement will obligate parents to pay a student’s class fees for the entire school year. If a student drops out before the first day of school, only the first semester’s class fees will be due; after school has commenced, all class fee will be due except a pro-rated rebate, not to exceed 50% of fees, that will be granted in the following circumstances:
1. The student moves outside the greater Phoenix area (50 miles from church) with 60 days written notice.
2. The student experiences extended physical illness and is unable to attend school.
Re-enrollment is not automatic. Each family receives a re-enrollment letter and fee agreement in January. Families must sign and return these forms WITH the re-enrollment fee by the published deadline to secure placement.
After the deadline, openings are filled with applicants from the waiting lists or new applicants. Only children who demonstrate sufficient academic performance and appropriate behavior qualify for re-enrollment. Children with deficient academic performance, poor attitudes, or unsatisfactory work ethics may not be invited to re-enroll. (This may sound harsh but if co-op become a chore for parents who teach, due to constant poor behavior from students, then it makes co-op day become a drudgery and something no one will look forward to. Coming prepared to class, being ready to learn and participate, and having respect for teachers and peers is important to us and outlined in our Student Code of Conduct).
While siblings of current students are definitely given preference, and most likely will be accepted too, enrollment is still not guaranteed. Sibling applicants, like all other applicants, must demonstrate sufficient academic ability, developmental readiness, and appropriate behavior.
