Back to School Open House

Abner Montessori invites all families to our Meet the Teacher event. Each classroom will be open for students and the parents to visit from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to meet their teachers, visit with classmates, and become familiar with the classroom.

Automatic Drafting (ACH) FAQ

WHAT ARE ACH PAYMENTS?

ACH Payments are a free service offered by Abner Montessori / Sky After School whereby your regular tuition payment is electronically withdrawn from your checking account and applied to your Abner Montessori / Sky After School account. Your payment is automatically withdrawn on your regular billing date. If your billing date falls on a weekend or holiday, the payment is withdrawn on the next business day. No more writing checks, buying stamps or worrying about mail delays!


WILL I STILL RECEIVE A BILLING STATEMENT?

Yes, you will receive a billing statement for the full term of your tuition contract. Once you have been enrolled in the ACH program, your statement will reflect that your payment is being made automatically.


WHAT IF I CHANGE BANKS?

If you change banks after enrolling in the ACH service, please contact us and let us know and fill out a new ACH form.


WHAT HAPPENS IF AN ACH PAYMENT IS REJECTED?

ACH withdrawals may be rejected by your bank because of insufficient funds, closed or unauthorized accounts or other reasons. Your ACH payment will not be credited to your Abner Montessori / Sky After School account if the payment is returned by your bank for any reason. Please note that in the event of a rejection due to insufficient funds, Abner Montessori / Sky After School reserves the right to re-present this payment after 3 calendar days unless you give Abner Montessori / Sky After School notice within 2 calendar days of the rejection. Abner Montessori / Sky After School reserves the right to terminate your participation in this service at any time.


CAN I CANCEL OR SUSPEND THE ACH WITHDRAWAL?

You may cancel your participation in ACH withdrawals at any time by simply calling Abner Montessori / Sky After School at (803) 345-9428. To do so, you must contact us at least five (5) days before the next scheduled ACH will be withdrawn. Once enrolled for ACH withdrawals, unless you cancel the service, you may not skip, suspend or delay the ACH withdrawal of any scheduled payment.
