Financial Policy for Enrolled Students

Bridgeway Academy fees may vary from year to year. Please call for current pricing information when enrolling for the current term. We accept: personal or cashier’s checks, money orders, American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and bank wire transfer payments.  We do not accept Western Union/MoneyGram. Please make checks or money orders payable to: Bridgeway Academy.


Registration Fees

Registration fees include initial enrollment processing and placement testing services only. Registration fees for each student are due annually. Registration fees are non–refundable and must accompany all applications, new and re-enrollment. The initial registration fee is valid only for 2 months (60 days) from the date of enrollment. All registered students who fail to return the proper enrollment paperwork and complete placement tests and/or provide their previous school records within this specified time will be put on academic hold for up to 30 days. A student can reinstate their enrollment if a reinstatement fee of $50.00 is paid and all enrollment procedures are completed within 30 days from the date the student’s account is put on academic hold. If the payment and paperwork is not received within that time frame, the student’s enrollment is considered cancelled and the student’s record will be inactivated. If the family desires to enroll the student after that point they must enroll as a new student and pay the full registration fee.

If you received a discount on registration fees and should withdraw at a later date, Bridgeway’s policy requires that we retain the full amount of registration fees from the refund if applicable.


Tuition Fees

Your commitment to take control of your student’s education is an investment in their future. It involves a serious commitment of both time and finances. We are committed to keeping tuition affordable, while at the same time providing the best educational experience for you and your student.


Tuition fees include the use of all necessary textbooks, tests, student workbooks, teacher guides, and/or answer keys, detailed instructor’s guides that provide easy to follow plans for each day, as well as record keeping services. These services include projections and transcripts (for high school students only), record review, grade validation, honor roll participation (if qualifying), and report cards for each year enrolled. Additionally, an enrollment verification letter and/or certificate of grade completion will be provided upon request.


Tuition fees are incurred every school year/enrolled grade level per student. Tuition fees are non-refundable after 30 days from the date of shipping. If the enrollment is cancelled within 30 days of shipping, any tuition fees paid will be refunded in-full, provided the curriculum is returned to Bridgeway in unused condition. If any materials are used or unreturned, the cost of these items will be deducted from the refund.


Please note: Tuition fees do not include shipping fees. Curriculum will not be shipped if tuition and/or shipping fees are not paid. Shipping costs are non-refundable.

Tuition fees can be paid in the following 3 ways:

  • Paid in-full – due at the time of enrollment or within 60 days of registration/enrollment.
  • Two payment plan – first payment is due at the time of enrollment or within 60 days of registration; second payment is due 4 months from the date of the first tuition payment.
  • Monthly payment plan – down payment of $500.00 due at the time of enrollment or within 60 days of registration/enrollment; the balance is to be paid in 6 additional equal payments which are automatically processed by credit card or checking account.
