Temporary withdrawal is defined as an absence of more than one month and less than 12 months that is approved in advance by the Headmaster, upon the recommendation of the Principal.
It is important that families considering a temporary withdrawal familiarize themselves with the Board Policy, found here. There are two types of temporary withdrawal:
- Temporary withdrawal with space reserved — the family pays the registration and tuition fees while absent and upon return the student is guaranteed immediate placement in the appropriate grade.
- Temporary withdrawal without space reserved — the family pays only the annual registration fee while absent and upon return the student is guaranteed the next available placement in the appropriate grade (pending space availability).
Temporary withdrawal approval, if granted, is valid for the period requested and indicated on the approval letter. For High School students, it is important to note that a student must earn the necessary credits toward graduation while they are away, and must return at the beginning of a semester. High School students cannot return to Nido mid-semester due to the difficulty of attaining the necessary credits.
