Enrollment Agreement

(the "Student")​​

1. Reservation and Deposit:One copy of this Enrollment Agreement and the non-refundable payment specified below will reserve a place for the Student in the Saddle River Day School Summer Academy 2023 (the “Program”). When you return the signed Enrollment Agreement and deposit, the Enrollment Agreement becomes binding on you and the School, meaning that the undersigned, jointly and individually, agree to pay to Saddle River Day School (“SRDS” or the “School”) tuition as outlined in this contract in consideration of the enrollment of the Student by SRDS. This Agreement is for the Program only and does not obligate SRDS to enroll the Student for any subsequent programs or offerings.

2. Tuition Schedule: The total tuition for a Full-Credit Course is $1,600.00, of which $550.00 is due upon signing this Agreement and is non-refundable. The remaining payment of $1,050.00 is due no later than June 19, 2023.

The total tuition for a Semester-Credit Course is $850, which is due in full upon signing this Agreement and is non-refundable.

The total tuition for a Non-Credit Course is $450, which is due in full upon signing this Agreement and is non-refundable.

SRDS will provide no refunds for any reason including, but not limited to, dismissal by SRDS, illness, relocation, and/or a substantial change in the financial or personal circumstances of the family.

3. Right of Cancellation: SRDS shall have the right to cancel the Program and/or individual classes due to insufficient enrollment. In the event of such cancellation, SRDS will refund all monies paid to date, including the initial $550.00. You will be notified of any cancellation no later than June 20, 2023.

4. Overdue Balances: Overdue balances may result in SRDS declining to educate the Student and the initiation of legal action to recover the money owed. In the event of a default, the responsible parties will be liable for the payment of all reasonable legal fees incurred by the School in the collection of monies due under this Agreement. Until all sums due to SRDS are paid, the School will not release the Student’s transcript or make any referrals on his/her behalf and will inform any prospective college or school of such unpaid balance. Students returning for SRDS’ fall semester, whose tuition payment for the Program is in arrears, will be subject to review for reenrollment.

5. Force Majeure: The School’s duties and obligations under this Enrollment Agreement may be suspended immediately without advanced notice during any period that the School closes at its own discretion or pursuant to governmental action or order due to any force majeure event including, but not limited to, any acts of nature, flood, fire, hurricane, tornado, earthquake, war, riots, threat of or actual act of terrorism, epidemic, pandemic, any outbreak of disease, or any other event beyond the School’s control. If such a force majeure event occurs, the School’s duties and obligations under this Enrollment Agreement may be postponed until such time as the School, in its sole discretion, may safely reopen.

6. Program Delivery: The Program is a distance learning program. This means that participation will occur in a virtual environment using Google Meets, or some similar hosting service. Participants shall be responsible for providing their own computer device and establishing and maintaining connectivity to the hosting service. SRDS shall bear no responsibility for technical issues encountered by the participants and shall be deemed to have fulfilled its technology obligation by delivering a viable signal to the hosting service.

7. School/Family Cooperation: SRDS believes that a positive and constructive working relationship between the School and the Students’ parent(s) or guardian(s) is essential to the fulfillment of its mission. As a result, the School reserves the right to dismiss the Student or prohibit a parent/guardian or other family member from coming on campus or attend School events on or off campus, if the School reasonably concludes that the actions of the Student, a parent, guardian or family member make such a positive and constructive relationship impossible or seriously interferes with SRDS’ ability to accomplish its educational purposes. The decision of the School in this regard shall be final.

8. Indemnification: The School is not responsible for loss or damage to the Student’s property. The undersigned parents/guardians of the Student agree to defend, indemnify, and hold SRDS harmless from any and all losses that it incurs as a result of the Student’s actions or inactions.

9. Use of Image and Voice: As part of this Enrollment Agreement, the undersigned consents to the School’s use, in whole or in part, of any photographs, videos, written extractions, and voice/performance recordings of the Student named above for the purpose of illustrations, publications and websites. These representations may include reference to the Student’s name. This consent also permits the School to notify local newspapers of the Student’s academic, athletic, and other special achievements. Please contact the School should you not agree to this term.

10. COPPA Consent: In order for the School to provide the Student with the most effective web-based tools and applications for learning, SRDS utilizes or may utilize computer software applications and web-based services, operated by third parties, including but not limited to Google Classroom. In order for SRDS students to use these programs and services, certain personal identifying information, generally the student’s name and email address, must be provided to the third party website operator. Under the federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and Rule (“COPPA”), these websites must provide parental notification and obtain parental consent before collecting personal information from children under the age of 13. However, the law permits schools such as SRDS to consent to the collection of personal information on behalf of all of its students, thereby eliminating the need for individual parental consent to be given directly to the website operator. The undersigned parent/guardian agree(s) and understand(s) that the Student may be using resources that may require the Student to have an account on an app, website, or program that will collect personal information from the Student and that SRDS may provide consent for that collection of information on behalf of the Student.

11. Conditions for Enrollment: Continued enrollment is conditional upon the Student’s satisfactory behavioral standing according to SRDS standards. Furthermore, the Student understands that he/she must follow the rules and regulations of SRDS as set forth in the Student Handbook and in the event of a serious breach of these rules prior to, or during, the Student’s attendance at the Program, the School will have the right to cancel the Student’s enrollment. The School reserves the right to suspend or dismiss a participant during the course of the Program whose conduct is deemed unacceptable to the School. The decision of SRDS in this regard shall be final.

12. Non-Discrimination: Saddle River Day School is a nonprofit, coeducational, college preparatory, independent day school accredited by the State of New Jersey and by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and is a member of the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools and the National Association of Independent Schools. SRDS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, nationality, religion, disability, gender, gender identity or expression, affectional or sexual orientation in all aspects of its operations including admission policies, administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, consideration for financial aid, grants and scholarship programs, and participation in athletic and other school-administered activities.

13. Governing Law/Jurisdiction: This Enrollment Agreement and the rights and obligations of the parties to it shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey without regard to principles of conflicts of law. The parties agree to waive the right to jury trial over any claims pertaining to Student’s enrollment, attendance, or separation from the School including, but not limited to, claims of breach of this Enrollment Agreement. The exclusive venue for any claim brought pursuant to the terms of this Enrollment Agreement or that is in any way related to the Student’s matriculation at the School shall be the state and federal courts located in New Jersey.

15. Entire Agreement: This Enrollment Agreement sets forth the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter of the Student’s enrollment and attendance at SRDS and merges and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous written or oral understandings between the parties. There have been no representations or warranties made by any party other than the representations and warranties contained in this Enrollment Agreement.
