  • February 15: Returning Student Enrollment begins

  • May 15: Tuition Agreements become binding
  • August 5: First payment due for monthly payment plans

February 1: Education Team Advising begins (optional)

Choosing Petra is a big decision. To support student and family retention, members of our Education Team (Mr. Christofferson, Mrs. Stohlmann, Mr. Koenen, and Mr. Dunham) are each available for advising to help think through options and get big and small questions answered.

February 15: Returning Student Enrollment begins

  • Online registration with $100/student deposit by March 15, or $400/student deposit after March 15. This deposit locks an available roster spot for returning families.

After completing these items, a tuition agreement will be sent. All deposits apply toward the total tuition cost. Payments toward the remaining tuition balance (after registration is applied) will begin in August or September, depending upon preferred payment method (monthly, semi-annually or annually).

March 15: New Student Enrollment begins*/Returning Student Enrollment continues

  • $400/student deposit (applied to 2018-19 tuition) with completed online registration locks a roster spot for new families as well as any returning families who did not take advantage of early enrollment.

*New families may complete online registration early, but will not be included in the enrollment count until after March 15, at which time all applicants (new or returning) will be included on a first-come, first-served basis.

May 15: Tuition Agreements become binding

  • After families have completed online registration and submitted the requisite deposit(s), a tuition agreement will be sent. Families must complete and sign their 2018-19 tuition agreement and finalize their payment arrangements by May 15.
  • Up until May 15, families who have previously paid their deposit and completed their online registration may choose not to enroll, in which case they will lose their spot and their deposit, but will not be liable for the remaining tuition balance.
  • After May 15, a family’s deposit is counted as part of 2018-19 tuition and they are responsible for the year’s full tuition.
  • Families (returning or new) enrolling after May 15, may lock spot with their $400/student deposit and signed tuition agreement, and are responsible for the full 2018-19 tuition.

August 5: First payment due (monthly payment)

August 15: First payment due (annual or semi-annual payment)
