Tuition is due on Monday of each week. We accept cash, check, credit/debit cards, and money orders. Our fiscal school year begins September of every year. All registration fees and supplies will be renewed by the first of September in order to ensure a spot for your child at Ship's Ahoy. A notice will be sent out at least one month in advance, then three weeks, then two weeks, and so on. The tuition and fee schedule is as follows:

CCA Parents

Any parents that have the aid of CCA will pay weekly tuition in full until the center receives a certificate from CCA. If the parent already has a certificate, Ship's Ahoy will charge half of the full price in addition to the registration fee for any child to start the center at least until the correct monthly amount is determined. We do not reimburse; however, we will put any money owed to parents toward their account, in some cases leaving them in pre-pay status. For complete information on CCA payments, see the Parent Handbook. CCA only pays for two absences per month. Parents are responsible for any absences above two.
