It is the objective of Maplewood Academy to operate the school as efficiently and economically as possible in order to offer a quality Christian education to our youth. The major source of income for the school is the student charges. Before a student is enrolled at Maplewood Academy, a parent or guardian must accept financial responsibility for the student by signing a financial agreement form stating that the account will be paid on a regular and timely basis.
Maplewood Academy adheres strictly to the financial policies as stated below.
- Student accounts for the previous year’s schooling must be paid in full or adequate written arrangements made with the Vice Principal for Finance before students can be permitted to register for the current school year. Any delinquent accounts remaining from siblings who have previously attended Maplewood must be settled in like manner before another student from the same family may be admitted.
- If an account has an unpaid balance equivalent to one months’ charges, that student will not be permitted to continue classes until the account is brought current. All students will need a test permit to take their semester finals and permits will not be issued to any student whose account is not current.
- The diploma will be granted only when the bill is paid in full.
- Participation in some school trips, tours and extra activities may be dependent upon a student’s account being kept current.

Dormitory Students: $17,900.00* (includes room and board)

Work is an important part of the educational program at Maplewood Academy. Students need to learn about the world of work and also gain experience in employment. All students living in the dormitory are required to hold a part-time job assigned by school administration. Non-dormitory students are not required to work, although they are strongly encouraged to work off campus. Work assignments are made on the basis of needed workers in the various industries and departments on campus.
Students are expected to perform their work as efficiently and responsibly as possible. Work supervisors will evaluate each student worker and assign a letter grade for each grading period that will appear on their transcript. Students whose work is not acceptable or who are not cooperative in their job assignment face disciplinary intervention up to and including termination of employment.
For employment purposes students MUST provide proper I-9 documentation such as:
- State issued ID with photo and Social Security Card
- State issued ID with photo and Certificate of Birth.
- US Passport or Passport Card
- Permanent Resident Card
- Foreign passport that contains a temporary I-551 stamp
- Or any combination according to the current I-9 Form
