TUITION- Terms and Refunds
The Jubilee Academy has both public and private sections of this website. Private sections are those that require a username and passcode combination to access. Primarily for instruction, these sections are available on a tuition basis to individuals throughout the world. Tuition and fees are due and payable before students are shipped curriculum materials and before course access. If enrolled when no payment installment plan is available the student may withdraw from The Jubilee Academy anytime during the first 30 days of enrollment and receive a 66% refund of tuition fees paid; from day 31 onward refunds are not available. At certain times of the year, The Jubilee Academy offers a payment plan to make it easier for parents and guardians to budget. Upon enrollment the student’s parent or guardian is agreeing to pay the total tuition for the then-current school year with one exception; during the first 1 month of enrollment the parent or guardian may withdraw the student and only be financially responsible for the first tuition payment as long as the curriculum materials are returned within 30 days from withdrawal. (A $200.00 curriculum charge will be assessed if the curriculum materials are not returned.) After the first month, parents are responsible for the tuition for the entire school year (whether in single payment or installments). Any curriculum charges are waived upon payment in full of the yearly tuition. Enrollment fees (if any) are refundable up to the point that an enrollment/application has been reviewed and accepted. After this process is completed the enrollment/application fee (if any) is not refundable UNLESS the enrollment/application has been declined. Declined applicants may receive a refund of the enrollment/application fee. Shipping & handling fees cover all normal shipping and handling to destinations in the U.S. for curriculum materials normally included and can not be refunded after the first postal mail or other delivery has been sent. Parents may keep all curriculum excepting videos and video CDs which must be returned after use.

FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Tuition and fees are due upon before or upon enrollment in The Jubilee Academy. At times The Jubilee Academy offers a payment plan to make it easier for parents or guardians to budget yearly tuition costs. This plan is offered interest free as long as invoice payments are not late. For accounts that are not current, a finance charge of 1.5% (subject to State and National regulations) is added on a monthly basis and will accumulate until the account is paid. Payments may be made through our secure online payment system by logging into the “parent” account clicking on the “Make Payment” button. Accounts automatically charge credit card accounts when future payments are due unless the credit card owner emails customer service at least 5 business days before the payment due date and requests that the credit card not be automatically charged. In this case parents are responsible for entering a payment via the online system and/or mailing a check or money order for the amount due. Returned checks are subject to a $30.00 (or then current) Return Check Fee. Declined Credit Card transactions are subject to a our Declined Credit Card Fee. Accounts that are placed in collection because of non-payment are subject to additional fees as permitted by law. The account holder is responsible for all collection costs (legal and para-legal) associated with collection activities for accounts that are cancelled for non-payment. Accounts cancelled for non-payment are subject to a $200.00 per student curriculum fee that may be credited upon return of all curriculum materials in good useable condition within 30 days of cancellation. Accounts cancelled or suspended for non-payment are subject to reporting to credit agencies and collection services.

IN-SCHOOL SUSPENSION, EXPULSION AND DISENROLLMENT
In-School Suspension is a temporary discontinuance of access to The Jubilee Academy private sections. Students remain enrolled during an in-school suspension and all financial responsibilities remain in effect during an in-school suspension. If a student is expelled, the financial responsibility to the tuition ceases upon expulsion. A parent or guardian may disenroll a student by informing The Jubilee Academy via fax, mail or email. If a parent or guardian disenrolls a student during the first two months of enrollment then they are responsible only for their first tuition payment. If they disenroll after the end of the second month, they are responsible for the tuition for the entire school year.

PRIVACY
We recommend that you review our Privacy Policy that is posted on this web site, which is part of these Terms of Use and which we may amend from time to time. If at any time you are not in compliance with the policy, we have the right to terminate your rights of use and access to this web site. Unfortunately, we cannot insure that all personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in the Privacy Policy. We may be required by law to disclose information to government authorities, law enforcement or to third parties upon subpoena. and you authorize us to disclose information as we believe, in our sole discretion, is necessary or appropriate.

RELIGIOUS CONTENT AND WORLD-VIEW
The Jubilee Academy website is centered around traditional, conservative Christianity which is not only limited to subjects such as Bible or Devotions but is extended to be integrated in all traditional subjects. Christian concepts are integrated into all subject areas in all grade levels. The type of Christian content is generally described in our Statement Of Faith. All students, regardless of religious background are expected to learn and master all teachings at Jubilee that include our Christian foundation.

Understanding that this is a Christian learning environment you agree not to express, attempt to persuade or proselytize other parents or students to a differing view even if you disagree with these positions. This policy is in place because parents expect that the Christian teaching received at Jubilee is consistent with our Statement of Faith. This policy does not preclude discussions of comparative religions limited to classrooms where such discussion is part of the determined and approved lesson structure. This policy does not apply to situations such as personal, non-public, one-to-one discussions with teachers, tutors and/or administration to discuss and explore matters of a spiritual nature; we encourage such inquiry and encourage our teachers, tutors, staff and administration to participate to the degree that the time involved in such discussions does not interfere with their ability to well tend to the primary needs of their students.
