Frequently Asked Questions
How are ASC fees assessed?
All billing for ASC is handled through Smart Tuition. The ASC billing period is a ten (10) month period that begins in August and ends in May.
Do you reduce the monthly charge on months when school is out for a holiday?
Rates are based on the total number of school days and then divided over ten months, August through May.
What if my child is not on an ASC plan but an emergency arises requiring a need for ASC?
No problem. The ASC program is available on a drop-in basis to children enrolled at Westminster. The drop-in rate is listed above. First-time users will be charged a registration fee.
Is ASC open on school holidays and teacher workdays?
ASC is not open on school holidays or teacher workdays but is open on parent-teacher conference days.
What about early dismissals?
If your child is enrolled in an ASC plan which coincides with an early dismissal day, ASC staff will care for your child without any additional charges. Students who are not on a plan and require ASC service on an early dismissal day will be billed at the drop-in rate.
