What Does it Cost?
.
Updated: May 4, 2016

When students enroll at Midland, they purchase an educational service. Most of the charges are included in one flat-rate charge which offers advantages to the student, parents, and the school. As these charges are based on present costs for services, the School Board reserves the right to adjust the rates as it may deem necessary.

Financial walletThe yearly rates for the 2016-2017 school year will be as follows: 

Grade Tuition* General Fee
Elementary (K-6) $3710.00 $580.00
Middle School (7-8) $4510.00 $585.00
High School (9-12) $7610.00 $739.00






The cost for attending Midland can be broken down into two areas: tuition and the general fee.

Tuition

These charges cover instruction in all classes and the use of facilities and equipment.

General Fee

This fee covers class dues, library fee, textbooks, music fee, school yearbook, school T-shirt, student accident insurance and student association dues. Choosing not to participate in any of the above will not reduce the general fee. The general fee is refundable at 50% during the first two weeks of a student’s enrollment at Midland. There will be a $50.00 discount if this fee is paid prior to July 15th.

* Tuition payments do not cover the full cost of operating Midland, and members of our constituent Seventh-day Adventist churches help support Midland with substantial subsidies. 



Payment schedule

Midland uses a ten-month payment plan. The first of the ten billings is due at Registration in August. A monthly statement outlining tuition charges, credits, miscellaneous charges, and payments will be sent to each family by the 1st of each month. It is important all student accounts be paid by the 10th of the month. The school depends upon receiving prompt payment of its tuition accounts to meet its monthly financial obligations.

Note: A $20 late fee will be applied to student accounts not paid by the 10th of the month.

Payment methods
 
Midland Adventist Academy accepts VISA and MasterCard. You may also pay by cash, check, automated bill payment through your bank, or by a scheduled credit/debit card payment.

Please note that the information on this page is general information. The official school handbook will be considered the final authority in all financial matters.
