Tuition and Fees Information
Tuition covers the general cost for faculty, facilities rental and management, and administrative support. There are other costs associated with a private school education that are not covered by tuition. Your total monthly bill will include tuition as well as other expenses your student incurs, such as those noted below.
Tuition Does NOT Include
Book and material fee, Security fee, uniforms or optional items such as hot lunch. This is not an exhaustive list and other fees may be incurred. Extra-curricular activities maintain individual fees per the specific activity. All Fees are non-refundable.
Monthly payment plan options are as follows:
- Tuition paid in full by August 5th
- Tuition paid in 2 equal installments (August 5th and December 5th)
- 10-monthly payments made by automatic bank withdrawal only (August-May)
Late Payment Fees
There will be a $25 charge for tuition payments received after the due date of any month. If a balance is outstanding over 30 days, there will be an additional finance charge of 1.5 % of the outstanding balance incurred monthly. Late payment fees are non-refundable.
Transcript Release Policy
All student billing accounts must be paid in full before Highlands Latin School Indianapolis will release academic records/transcripts to another school. Academic records may also be withheld for not returning school equipment or outstanding fees. Transcripts and diplomas will be withheld if a senior’s account has not been paid in full by the last day of their academic year.
There is a $250 enrollment deposit per student. This deposit will be credited to the student’s 2019-20 tuition. Once this enrollment fee is paid students are subject to the Withdrawal Policy below.
Once a student is accepted into Highlands, the enrollment deposit due date will be specified on the acceptance letter. If the enrollment deposit is not paid by the due date, a late fee will be assessed.
Re-enrollment Fee (All Returning Students)
For all returning students there is a re-enrollment fee of $250.00 per student due February 6, 2019. This $250 fee will be credited to the student’s tuition account in the fall of the next school year.
- Late Re-enrollment Fee:
There is an additional late fee of $100 if the re-enrollment fee is paid after February 6th but by March 31th. If classroom space is available, students who re-enroll after April 1st, pay an increased late fee of $200. This late fee is non-refundable and does not get credited toward tuition.
- Withdrawal of Re-enrollment:
When paid, the re-enrollment fee reserves a seat for the upcoming school year for each student currently enrolled and obligates the family to the withdrawal policy should their enrollment plans change. Students who will not be returning for the next school year must notify the Admissions department by completing the HLS Withdrawal Notification Form by February 6th. Students who withdraw for the upcoming school year after February 6th will be subject to the withdrawal policy below. All fees are non-refundable.
It is our desire to remain fiscally responsible and be good stewards of the financial commitment our families have made to their children’s education. As such, to maintain a sound operating budget, Highlands Latin School Indianapolis has authorized a schedule for payment of tuition in the event an enrolled student withdraws from the school during the school year, or for the upcoming school year.
If a family chooses to withdraw an enrolled student, they must notify the Admissions department by completing the HLS Withdrawal Notification Form. Withdrawals that occur after February 6, 2019 will be assessed a portion of the tuition based on the date the HLS Withdrawal Notification Form is received.

Highlands Latin has a unique class schedule that requires involved parents and supports family time. It also provides an opportunity for students to schedule activities such as doctor and dentist visits without missing important classroom time. Because of our schedule, we do not show movies or plan field trips during the school day. Every available minute is dedicated to accomplishing our academic goals.
