July 1st Payment Discount Plan -  A 3% discount will be applied for payment in full of all tuition and fees for the full school year, made on or before July 1, 2023. Payment can be made by check directly to GSP or online by ACH withdrawal or credit/debit card. You will be charged a convenience fee for credit/debit card payments. Not to be used with other discounts.

  • Monthly Payment Plan

Monthly payments of tuition and extended care fees can be made directly by check to GSP or online by ACH withdrawal or credit/debit card. A convenience fee is charged for monthly credit/debit card payments made online.

Withdrawal Policies

Should you elect to withdraw your student on or after the first day of school, you will be assessed one month’s tuition for each month or portion of a month the student has been in attendance. You will also be assessed a withdrawal fee of $100 (per student). Deposits and fees are nonrefundable and nontransferable.

A waiver of the withdrawal fee will be considered on a case-by-case basis in the event of moving out of the area, or if GSP determines that it can no longer meet your student’s educational needs.
