    20% off third full tuition;
    35% off fourth full tuition;
    50% off fifth full tuition.

    Note: Order of tuition is determined by student age from oldest to youngest, (i.e., 'first' tuition is based on your oldest child, 'second' tuition is your second oldest, etc.). The reduction percentage is calculated based on the Pre-Payment Discount tuition amount and is applied equally over the payment period you select. Multi-Child discounts may not be used toward the deposits.
