    Weekly Tuition

    As you are reserving a space in Pirate’s Cove, please note the cost is $70 per child per week. Whether your child attends consistently or not, you are responsible for tuition payments. Tuition payments are due on Monday each week or the first school day of that week. Tuition is billed weekly through SchoolPay.com. You can choose to pay weekly, biweekly, or monthly by adding fees to your cart. You can also set up recurring, credit card payments by emailing the school bookkeeper, Stephanie Moulton at f39271@forsyth.k12.ga.us. A minimum of $70 must be paid each week to maintain enrollment.

    Please note that we DO allow devices, but Pirates Cove/Poole’s Mill is not responsible for them. Each child is responsible for their own belongings.


    A structured homework/reading time is allotted daily for all students. We will work with students to document their required daily 30 minutes of “home reading” if they bring a book and their log. In addition, it is the child’s responsibility to know if they have homework/reading to complete.


    Kindergarten and first graders PLEASE keep a change of clothes in their backpack. Please dress your child appropriately for the weather and according to school regulations.
