Is Tuition Express Free?
Hello, Plato Academy Families.
Thank you for your continued patience while we are transitioning to the new online payment system. While we had hoped that it would be operational when school started, the change from the old system to the new one is more in depth than we had anticipated. At this time, the old "Make a Payment" link will be available on the home page of each campus for you to access and make payments. Any payments that have been made to date have been kept record of and will be entered into the old system. We are requesting that Tuition Express forms are completed and returned so that we can begin to enter that information into the new software system.
Until further notice, you may log on to the old system to make tuition payments for preschool, extended care, drop care, and club fees. Please note that all charges and payments for school lunches are now being handled through Pinellas County Schools and are no longer managed through Plato Academy.
Again, thank you for your continued patience during this transition. Should you have any questions, please contact the on-site Director of Early Learning and Extended Care programs at your campus.
Plato Academy is excited to offer you the convenience of Tuition Express – an automated payment processing system that is integrated into the ProCare Child Care Management System that allows you to pay your tuition and fees.
