Payment Plans and Fees

To attend CLHS, a student’s parent(s) or guardian(s) must sign an enrollment contract that specifies the payment option and personal responsibilities. Contracts will be emailed to students before the start of the next school year. 

In the event that any payment is returned for NSF, a $30 will be charged.

Payment Options

Tuition and Fees must be paid online through SMART, which accepts debit card or major credit card or you can set it up through your bank account. SMART charges a modest fee. Funds are automatically withdrawn from your bank account on either the 1st or 20th of the month. If tuition is paid in full or by semester, that fee is waived. Payment methods are set unless other arrangements are made with the Business Office. To see your SMART Tuition balance, log into your OnCampus account and click "SMART Tuition" on your Resource board under the Parent persona. 

Full Pay Option

You may pay any balance of any tuition and fees in full at any time. If you pay your balance in full in July or August, you will receive a 2% discount on the tuition portion of the balance.

Semester Pay Option

You can split the balance of tuition by paying half in August, and half in January, both through SMART.

Monthly Pay Options

A monthly payment plan is available from SMART. They have three plans:

  • 10-month plan (August – May)
  • 11-month plan (July – May)
  • 12-month plan (June – May)
