The Finance Office is located in Aloian House and is staffed 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Itemized tuition bills are mailed monthly, and a separate statement for the student activities account is emailed each month. Tuition bills include tuition, insurance, music lessons, and tutoring fees. All other student expenses are charged to the student’s activities account. Bills are due and payable upon receipt. Please note that no student may register and begin classes unless all current tuition charges and all bills from the previous semester have been paid in full. All senior student account balances must be paid in full prior to graduation in order for a student to receive their diploma.
Most boarding students open a checking account with a local bank in downtown Concord. Other students prefer to maintain an account with their home bank. In either case, local merchants in downtown Concord will require students to present a school ID card when paying by or cashing a check.
School ID cards are issued to new students in the fall after registration. Lost cards need to be reported immediately to the operations assistant in the Maintenance Barn in order for the card to be deactivated. A new card will be issued at a cost of $35. Because most school-related expenses may be charged to the student’s activities account, cash allowances tend to be modest. Students are strongly encouraged not to keep money or valuables in their rooms.
Students will occasionally be charged for special events and entertainment on campus, most of which are optional. Athletic apparel and equipment, some of which is necessary for participation on athletic teams or in physical education classes, are available for purchase from the Athletic Department.
Students should not ever keep more than $150 dollars in cash in their room or on their person. This is when we expect students to exercise Common Trust with Common Sense. Cash is not traceable, and therefore we expect students to use banks for savings, and debit/credit cards for larger purchases.
