Important Information

Multiple Child Discount

Families with more than one child enrolled at QCMS during the same school year will receive a discount of 20% off the annual tuition of the second and 30% off the annual tuition of the third child provided that the tuition rate is less than or equal to the tuition rate of each previous child. 

There is a sibling discount of 50% of the lowest tuition for the Kindergarten & Elementary classes.  The discount for additional siblings is 70% of the next lowest tuition.  The siblings may be enrolled in any of the QCMS classes.

This discount applies to tuition only.

Parental Involvement

All QCMS families are asked to donate a minimum of 20 volunteer hours to the school during the year.  Those who do not meet this requirement will be assessed $200 in lieu of service.

Recruitment Bonus

Our families are our best advertisers. We encourage you to recruit new students for our school. For each student a family brings in, it will receive a $750 tuition credit on its account. There is no limit to how many bonuses a family can receive. (The incoming family must enroll their child at QCMS and must verify their recruitment.)

Tuition and Fees

Tuition and Extended Day payments are due on the 1st of the month.  There is a fee of $25 for any late payments. 


QCMS Extended Day Rates for the 2018- 2019 School Year

We ask you to submit a schedule for your child. Your extended day total will be based on the schedule and you will pay for that extra time in nine equal monthly payments beginning in September of 2020 and ending in May of 2021.   

Your child’s tuition covers your child’s time in his or her class.

We know that many parents need to drop off their child early or pick them up later in the day. To accommodate those families we offer “Early Drop-Off” from 7:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m., and After-Care from 3:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. We also can accommodate those parents of morning students who need to stay for lunch (11:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.) or those requiring care on days when there is early dismissal.
