Please know that we strive to serve the needs of all children! We are happy to work with therapists, and full time aids. We do ask that you communicate this ahead of time with Laurin Ward and your child’s teacher. However, if the needs of the child exceed the qualifications of our staff we will schedule a time to meet with you to help you with figuring out other alternatives. We want to make sure that we create an environment that allows all children to grow and be successful.

Registration begins the first Monday in January and is open to all. There is no fee to complete an application. HIS School does not discriminate against prospective students/families on the basis of race, religion, gender or income. Priority placement is given first to returning students and siblings of returning students, second to Church of the Holy Cross members, third to the returning wait list, and fourth to the general public. To receive priority placement, you must register during the first two weeks of open enrollment. After placing the returning students and their siblings, remaining openings will be filled by church members, returning wait list, and then offered to the general public. If at any point there are more applicants than openings a lottery will be used to decide placement. The director of HIS School has the discretion to balance the classes by gender.  

Parents will be notified via e-mail of their child/children's class placement by the end of January. It is at this time that a registration fee equal to one month’s tuition must be paid in order to secure your child’s place in the programs.  

Classroom / Extended Day Placement Changes: There will be a $25 fee assessed after August 1 for any changes in your child's placement to cover administrative costs.

The registration fee (equal to 1 month tuition) must be paid in full in order to reserve your child’s place in the program. This non-refundable fee does not apply to tuition. Please do not submit payment for registration fees until you have been notified by letter of your child’s placement.

Please note that in February, we will require your child’s February tuition to be paid along with your registration fee for the upcoming school year if your child will be returning in the Fall.

Tuition Payment Options

Starting August 1st, you will be responsible for nine (9) tuition payments that will be due the first of every month from August 1 – April 1. We begin tuition payments in August, even though school does not start until September, so that we are able to purchase all materials/supplies necessary to offer your child the very best on his/her first day!

There are two ways you can pay tuition:

Annual Tuition: Families wishing to pay their child’s tuition upfront for the year will receive a 5% discount if paid in full by check or ACH number online only no later than August 1. Please note that families with siblings will not receive the additional sibling discount if opting for the annual payment discount. Checks should be mailed to Holy Cross Island School, PO Box 506, Sullivan’s Island, SC 29482.

Set-Up Recurring Monthly Payments: Monthly tuition payments will only be accepted by establishing a scheduled payment with your debit/credit card on the Holy Cross online system. You must set this up ON or BEFORE August 1, so that it will process your first payment on August 1. Those paying monthly will incur a 3% processing fee if using a credit card. The system accepts Visa/MC, Discover & electronic check.

  • The Annual Tuition rate, if paid by August 1, will result in a 5% discount. Annual Tuition MUST be paid by August 1 to receive this discounted rate.
  • Annual Tuition discounts do not apply to the Extended Day Program.
  • Families with siblings will not receive the additional sibling discount if opting for the annual payment discount.

If you need to withdraw your child from the program for any reason, please give a 30-day written notice. This allows us ample time to fill the space being vacated by your child. You are responsible for paying tuition through the end of the 30-day notice. Pre-paid tuition will be refunded in a prorated amount, to the extent that the prepaid tuition covered a period of time beyond the 30-day notice. There is a 1 month tuition penalty for withdrawal after August 1st.
