Excelsior’s Financial Policy:
We seek to be good stewards of that which has been entrusted to us. In order for us to plan accurately, we ask each family to view their involvement as a commitment for the entire year. We base the budget on this assumption, and even one or two withdrawals can have a negative effect.

Exceptions to this policy are the following only:

  1. Death of a parent
  2. Loss of a job
  3. Moving out of state

No transfers of tuition to other families are allowed.
