WITHDRAWAL, DISMISSAL, OR ABSENCES OF STUDENT
Recognizing that the school must make commitments for expenditures based on this enrollment
agreement and that the overhead expenses of the school do not diminish with the departure of a student
before or during the course of the school year, parents are responsible for the entire year’s tuition and
fees, even if the student is withdrawn or absent before or during the school year.
Once the $500 deposit is received, a spot is secured for the child for the upcoming school year. This
deposit (registration fee) is non-refundable and non-transferable under any circumstances.
If parents decide to withdraw enrollment once a child is accepted, they are required to notify the school
in writing before June 24, 2022. If a written withdrawal notice is received by June 24, 2022, no additional
payment will be required, besides for the initial deposit of $500, which will be forfeited.
After June 24, 2022 all amounts due under this tuition agreement shall be payable, due to the school’s
limited enrollment capacity and fixed costs. Full payment for the entire school year remains the
responsibility of the family in the event of withdrawal for any reason. There will be no refunds of tuition
for family vacations or sickness.
A child’s enrollment can be terminated by the school, without advance notice, for the following reasons:
noncompliance with payment of fees; if, in the professional opinion of the school staff, the child is not
benefiting from the program; if the child has medical or behavioral problems that the school is not
equipped to handle. Parents will be given an explanation prior to the date of termination.
Center City Jewish Preschool further believes that a positive and constructive working relationship
between the school and parents or guardians is essential to the fulfillment of the school’s mission.
Accordingly, the school reserves the right to discontinue enrollment of a student if the director determines
that the actions of a parent or guardian make such a positive and constructive relationship impossible or
interferes with the school’s accomplishment of its educational purpose.
DELINQUENCY OF PAYMENT
If tuition payments are not current, Center City Jewish Preschool may choose not to allow the student to
continue attending the school. CCJP can delay enforcing any of its rights or remedies under this agreement.
Such delays may include accepting late or partial payments. The decision to delay enforcement of its
rights under this agreement is solely at the discretion of CCJP. Forbearance on any one payment does not
affect the school’s rights to declare a default on that or any subsequent payment.
Parents or Guardians agree to pay, to the extent permitted by law, any expenses incurred by CCJP in the
collection of tuition, fees, and charges or in otherwise enforcing the school’s rights under this agreement,
including attorneys’ and accountants’ fees and expenses.
The duties and obligations of Center City Jewish Preschool under this agreement may be modified or
suspended immediately and without notice because of force majeure events including, but not limited
to, fire, flood, war, government action, terrorism, epidemic, pandemic, or any other event beyond CCJP’s
control. If such an event occurs, CCJP’s duties and obligations may be modified, suspended, or postponed
until such time as CCJP, in its sole discretion, may safely resume operations. The sole financial remedy for
a force majeure event is future service delivery and not a tuition refund. CCJP may, at its option, amend
the school year as needed in the event of an emergency that disrupts the normal academic calendar with
circumstances beyond its control.
Parents or Guardians agree to submit any disputes or differences between the school and the student’s family
to final and binding arbitration before a single, neutral arbitrator in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
agreed to by the school and family. If the two parties are unable to agree upon a single arbitrator, each
party shall appoint an arbitrator and the two so appointed shall select a third. The arbitration costs shall be
divided equally between the school and family. The existence and outcome of any arbitration – including
any material filed with the arbitrator(s), the contents of all depositions or testimony, all documents
produced during the course of the arbitration, and any remedy imposed or damages awarded by the
arbitrator(s) – shall remain confidential. Failure to maintain the confidence of the arbitration will void any
award in favor of the breaching party and shall entitle the non-breaching party to liquidated damages to
be determined by the arbitrator(s).
If Center City Jewish Preschool needs to temporarily suspend in-person school for any reason including but not limited to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be a grace period of twenty school days in which there will be no refunds or changes to tuition obligations. In the case of the closure lasting longer than twenty consecutive school days, parents will not be responsible to pay tuition beyond the initial twenty school days period. This change to our tuition policy ensures a commitment to our teachers as well as the needs of our parent body in the event of an extended closure.
