Policies

Updated: 11/17/18

Payment

You can pay tuition in full at the beginning of the semester or spread the cost out as a monthly payment.

Full Payment: Spring Semester Classes

Payment is due on January 18th, 2019 for the spring semester.

Monthly Payment: Spring Semester Classes

You have the option to pay the class tuition in monthly installments. To take advantage of the monthly payment plan, you must set up a recurring payment via PayPal. The tuition cost will be broken down into 4 equal, monthly payments. Your first monthly payment must be made by January 13th, 2019.

If a monthly payment doesn’t go through, you will be e-mailed to provide an updated payment method. If we are unable to resolve the payment issue within 15 days, the student account(s) will be locked and the student(s) will not be able to attend class until payment is made current.

Refund: Spring Semester Classes

If you paid the tuition in full, then you can request a refund, in writing to enrollment@sparksofmessiah.com, by the 15th of the month to take effect at the end of the month. You will receive a full refund for the remaining months of the academic year. For example, if you request a refund by February 15th then the refund will be for the months of March, April, and May.

If you are on the monthly payment plan, then you can request a cancellation of the monthly payment, in writing to enrollment@sparksofmessiah.com, by the 15th of the month to take effect at the end of the month. Your recurring payment plan will be canceled and you will be refunded the difference if you have paid for more months than have been in session. For example, if you have already paid four monthly payments but school has only been in session for three months, you will receive a refund for the fourth monthly payment.

Student accounts will be locked at the end of the month in which you request a refund/cancellation. Students can continue to attend class until the end of the month in which the refund/cancellation is requested.

If you choose to enroll again in the same class, in the same academic year, there will be a $20 re-enrollment fee.

Refund: Special Session Classes

You must request a refund, in writing to enrollment@sparksofmessiah.com, before the second class session to get a full refund of the class cost. After the second class session has started, there will be no refunds given.

 

Student Behavior

Student’s behavior should always be respectful and in line with qualities of a disciple of Yeshua. If there are issues with behavior, parents are expected to work with staff to provide solutions to the behavior so they do not continue.

 

Failure to improve behavior or behavior which is a serious disruption to class can result in removal from the class. Refunds will be given according to our refund policy.

 

Statement of Faith

Though we do not need to agree on every point as disciples of Yeshua, we will not tolerate any student or family member who is pushing an agenda. We do not tolerate Karaite, two-house, One Law, and Sacred name agendas. If you are pushing these agendas in class or reaching out to other families involved in our school to further these agendas, you will be subject to removal from our classes and will be provided a refund according to our refund policy.

 

Sparks of Messiah Online Torah School supports the UMJC’s statement of faith, which can be found at https://www.umjc.org/statement-of-faith/

 

Work Load for Kids

 

Students are expected to attend each class session and actively participate. Materials they need for the class will be posted on the Moodle class page or e-mailed prior to the live class sessions and should be available for students to use during the live class. Class times are included in the class syllabus.

 

Some classes will require work to be done during the week and prior to the next class session. This additional work will be clearly communicated in the class syllabus. Completing these assignments prior to class is expected.
