Grace Brethren Schools charges an application fee for new families and a re-enrollment fee for current families each year. This fee is used as part of the ongoing operational budget for each school year. The fee is charged separately from tuition to account for the expenses incurred with re-enrollment or applications that are distinct from normal operations. Additionally, these fees are used to offset expenses in operational systems such as the school information system and communications systems.
ACH allows you the convenience of having your monthly balance due GBS automatically deducted from your checking/savings account on the 10th of every month. There is no fee for this service. Simply request the ACH application from the business office and follow the instructions. You will still receive a monthly statement which will show what amount will be deducted from your account. This is a great timesaver, and by utilizing this service, you can avoid any possibility of late fee as your tuition will be paid on time every month. In the event of non-sufficient funds at the time this transaction takes place, you will be notified and a $25.00 NSF fee and all applicable late fees will be charged.
