  1. 2020-21 Calendar with the prospective start date and end date, 09/13/2020, and 06/06/2021, respectively. Please note these dates are subject to change.
  1. Tuition fees breakdowns:
    • $480 ($460 tuition + $20 teacher/TA gift fee) for the EARLY registration which is PAID BY June 1st. Please mail your check in by June 1st to be eligible for the early bird discount. PCLS will NOT deposit your check until 9/6.
    • $520 ($500 tuition + $20 teacher/TA gift fee) for the regular registration which is paid after June 1st. If you register and pay after June 2nd, the tuition will be changed to $500 in our system.
    • $20 will be included in each student’s tuition just to cover the teacher/TA gift fee that is usually collected by the Class Parents in September. This makes the Class Parent’s job easier since we do not have to follow up on the outstanding $20 fee.
    • REFUNDABLE parent duty fee of $150 (DEPOSIT) will be imposed as the school needs more families to help run PCLS events.
  1. Similar to the previous years, families who complete and pay their registration first will have their first choice of culture classes. In addition, the following culture classes have fees for materials:
    • Chinese Brush Painting – $20
    • Chinese Knotting – $20
    • Handmade Crafts – TBD
    • TaeKwoDo – TBD
  1. Students are required to pay these class fees by the 2nd week of the class, 09/20/2020, to guarantee their spot in the class.
