Terms and Conditions
By submitting a registration form for Summer at Phillips Brooks School, you agree to the following terms and conditions on behalf of yourself (the “Parent”) and the student named in the registration form (the “Student”), regarding enrollment in Summer at Phillips Brooks School 2020 (“Summer”). This agreement is made between the Parent/Student and Phillips Brooks School (the “School”). The person(s) bound by the fee payment obligations of this Agreement also shall include any non-parent or non-guardian responsible for payment of some or all of Student’s fees.
A deposit of 30% of the total cost of attendance must be paid to the School upon registration. The deposit is non-refundable and will not be returned to the payer under any circumstance, unless the School decides to cancel a class for which the Student is registered.
Balance of Fees
Full payment of the remaining 70% of the total cost of attendance must be submitted in full by March 1st 2020. For registrations after the March deadline, payment is due in full by the earlier of (a) the 15th calendar day after registration or (b) the workday prior to the Student’s first day of attendance.
Balance payments received before the deadline are refundable up to the deadline if the School is notified in writing or by email that the Student will not attend the Summer program.
Failure to pay by the deadline will result in cancellation of the Student’s registration; the Student’s spot in any selected classes will be vacated and made available to other families. In the event that space remains in the Summer program, the Student’s registration may be reinstated by payment in full of the fees due, plus a 10% late-payment fee.
Student may not attend any part of the Summer program until all fees are paid in full.
Cancelation of Classes
The School reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel a class for under-enrollment or other business considerations until April 1, 2020. Other extreme circumstances may provide cause to cancel a class after that deadline, as well, and the School reserves the right to do so. In either case, the School agrees to notify the Parent of cancelation in a timely manner and to return all fees to the Parent promptly thereafter, unless the Parent chooses to enroll the Student in a different class in lieu of receiving a refund.
School Rules, Dismissal, and Other Considerations
Parent acknowledges that, by entering this Agreement, Parent and Student agree to accept and abide by the School’s mission, philosophy, rules, regulations, policies, and standards expressed in or implied by School handbooks and other writings. School, at the discretion of the Head of School or a designated administrator (the “Head”), reserves the right to suspend or dismiss any student if the student, family, or designates for the family do not act in accordance with the School’s mission, philosophy, rules, regulations, policies, and/or standards expressed in or implied by School’s handbooks and other writings; or in accordance with the sentiments and standards of an independent school; or in a manner that impairs a positive and constructive relationship with School or interferes with School’s accomplishment of its educational purpose, as determined by the Head.
For purposes of this Agreement, “designates” include relatives, employees, friends, or other non-guardians or non-parents of Student’s family who interact with School on occasion.
School, in the Head’s sole discretion, reserves the right to suspend or dismiss any student whose performance, conduct, or attendance is found unsatisfactory. School reserves the right to terminate Student’s enrollment or to decline continued enrollment at any time for any reason not prohibited by law if, in the Head’s sole discretion, Student and/or Parent is uncooperative, unreasonable, or unsupportive of School, its administration, and/or its staff. If School terminates Student’s enrollment for any of the above reasons, School may retain all fees already paid. The decision of School in making this determination will be final.
By entering into this Agreement, Parent understands that School cannot guarantee the academic success or the successful social development of Student. Parent understands that School is not responsible for learning and social diagnostic services and evaluation. Admission for the Summer Program shall be conditioned upon (a) Student’s satisfactory completion of the current school year as determined by School in the Head’s sole discretion; (b) School’s receipt of any legally required immunization documentation; and (c) Parent’s payment of any past arrearage.
Consent Regarding Image Use
The Parent gives the School permission to use, reproduce, and publish photographs, video, audio, and other images of Student, both during and after Student attends the Summer program and into perpetuity. These photographs, video, audio, and other images of actively enrolled students are designed for use without student identification and may be used in School’s website, newsletters, brochures, media releases, promotional materials, publications, or in any other manner as determined in the sole discretion of School. If the Parent wishes to withdraw the consent in this paragraph of the Agreement, the Parent must submit a written notification of withdrawal of consent to the Head.
