Pre-Payment Option

August 2, 2018

In order to ensure that payments are made on time, we require our families to select a pre-payment option for school year fees.

  • Pre-Payments provide automatic payment on the 1st of each month from September to June.
  • Pre-payments may be set up by credit card, post-dated cheques or bank withdrawal for the 1st of each month, if tuition is not paid in full for the school year.

Have you set up your Pre-Payments….?

  • If you paid by Bank Withdrawal or using Credit Card Auto-pay last year, that will continue.  You are set for the new school year!
  • If you have provided post-dated cheques, or have set up Auto-pay for your Credit Card or have submitted a Pre-Authorized Payment with void cheque for 2018-19, you are set!

If none of the above apply, then you have not set up your pre-payments.  Please read on…!

What are the Pre-Payment Options?

  • Credit Cards can be set to Auto-Pay through your online account
  • Post-dated cheques can be made for the 1st of each month, payable to FVAD.

    • You have a credit card on your account as a backup.
