There is no school or ELS on Friday, April 27th.




If you divided your   Enrollment: New Students ??� Counseling &, Student Services ??� Yorba fees into multiple payments then your final payment is due on April 30th.  

Also, please remember ALL tuition, fees, etc. are due no later than May 15th or your student will not be able to return to school.



We will soon be able to start taking payments on line! If everything works out the way we have planned this will begin May 1st!  In order to accommodate this change all fees for using debit/credit cards have changed.  To swipe a debit card in the office will cost 1.2%.  (If you charge less than $80.00 this actually less than you used to deal with than before.)  Remember checks and cash are always free.  If you pay online via ACH (basically a check) it will cost you .50.  If you choose debit or credit on line it will cost you 3%.  We are working on you being able to put (and pay) for lunch money on line as well.  We just haven’t quite reached that point, hopefully it will be soon!  If you have any questions please call me or 

email me.  210-658-5331 or beth@fbauc.com
