Fees & Payments through Jupiter 

The Oaks has decided to take advantage of the next level of Jupiter, called Jupiter Prime. This new level opens up added functionalities including online form submissions, registrations, payments, and more!

Tuition payments will still be made through the school's ACH for the upcoming year, but payments on various fees (events, etc.) may now be made through Jupiter. Please note that there is a small convenience fee for these payments.

When setting up a checking/savings account payment in Jupiter there will be two small deposits made to the checking/savings account and an email request to validate these deposits (this will take a couple of days). Once your checking/savings account is set up within Jupiter you will not need to go through this process again. Jupiter will remember credit/debit and checking/savings information for future payments.

To make payments through Jupiter, log into your parent account and select "Pay" on the menu. This will show the current invoice (to see next year, change to the 2021-22 school year at the top). To make a payment click the "Pay" button and select your payment method and amount. Please make sure you are in the same year as the fee you are paying when making a payment. When looking at the upcoming year, the current year's balance will show up on the invoice. The accounts receivable department will continue to enter ACH (tuition) payments that are made. Please contact the school office if you have questions.
