Dear Parents:
 
We are excited to share some news with you!  For the 2018-2019 school year, and in response to popular demand, St Philip School is partnering with FACTS Management Company to provide tuition payment plans to fulfill and manage your tuition and fee payment obligations.  Partnering with FACTS for this aspect of our business operations help us to streamline our processes, and provide a number of added conveniences for you!
 
You’re already familiar with FACTS since it’s the service utilized by the Diocese of Pittsburgh’s Scholastic Opportunity Scholarship to assess qualification and determine financial need.  FACTS serves over 7,000 schools nationwide, and is the largest provider of payment plans to faith-based and private PK-12 schools in the country.  Over 2 million families enjoy the convenience and flexibility offered by their services, as well as other benefits, including:
 
1. An Easy Enrollment Process: All families must be participating in this program since it’s our new billing and payment platform. Please visit https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3MRT8/ and complete your FACTS profile if you don’t already have a FACTS account, or to log in and choose a payment plan. You’ll also be able to access the FACTS platform from our school’s Website. You can also choose how you can receive payment reminders, as well as how you’re going to fulfill your payment obligations. FACTS will also do the follow-up to payments not received on or before the due date.
 
2.    Payment Options:  Once you enroll in FACTS, you can choose your payment plan, selecting the number of payments you’d like to make and the payment method that works best for your family:
-       an automatic debit from a savings or checking account;
-       payment via a credit or debit card (with a nominal 2.85% service fee added); or
-       an invoice via mail or email.
 
3.    Convenient & Secure Account Management:  You will have the ability to manage your account via the FACTS’ secure Web site, and have access to FACTS employees at their home office in Lincoln, Nebraska to answer your questions.  Checking your account balance, making a payment, adding bank account or other credit card for added convenience, adding an additional authorized payer, or updating your personal information is a couple of clicks or taps away.  FACTS’ mobile payment platform works on all mobile devices too!
 
FACTS’ Actively Managed Payment Plans allow you to choose a tuition payment plan that works with your family’s budget, and allows St Philip School to have full control over adjustments which may need to be made due to hardships or unforeseen circumstances.
 
There is a nominal fee to cover the costs associated with the program.  There is NO FEE to make a payment in full!  If you’d like to choose two payments, there is a $10 annual fee charged to the family.  If you’d like to choose monthly payments, there is a $45 annual fee charged to the family.  As an added benefit, if all payments are made on time, and there is no outstanding balance on the account at the end of the year, St. Philip School will reduce the last payment of the year by $20 to help defray the cost of the program.
 
Thank you for your continued support of St Philip School.  We appreciate your commitment and support as we strive to provide the highest quality of education for your children.  May your summer continued to be blessed!
 
In His service -
