*The family cap for families living in or outside of Carter County is $2,200.
If the cost of tuition for your family exceeds $2,200, please checkout using the Family Cap option, rather than selecting each option from the schools below. The family cap applies to families inside and outside of Carter County. You must list each child and his or her school in the text box below the Family Cap dropdown menu
If you choose to pay online, you will be charged an additional PayPal convenience fee of approximately 5% which is already factored into each price displayed in the drop down menus below.
It is the parents’ responsibility to ensure payment is made on time. Parents will not be notified when the monthly payment is due, and students may be removed from school if payment is not made on time. For more information, reference Board Policy 6.204.
Parents, please select the appropriate option from the drop down menus for each of your tuition students. Click "Add to Cart." This will add the cost of each of your student's tuition payments to a cart, which you may pay with a credit card or with your PayPal account. Include your child's name in the "Student's Full Name" line or we will not be able to file payment with the appropriate student.
