First Bank and Trust (FBT) and St. Augustine High School are partnering for the 2018-2019 school year for the management of tuition and fees. First Bank and Trust offers a convenient, secure portal for financing tuition and approved fees or the one-time payment of tuition and fees.

You may finance tuition along with the technology fee, building fee, the consumables/lab fee and the student activity fee ($125.00) with a (10) month First Bank and Trust tuition loan. Other required fees must be paid upfront via the First Bank and Trust website through a one-time automatic bank draft, or with a debit or credit card. If you use a credit card or debit card as a form of payment, a 2.99% processing fee will be added to the amount charged. There is no processing fee is you choose to pay using a bank draft by providing your bank’s routing number and your bank account number.
Easy Online Sign-Up: If you are new to the FBT website, you may log in at https://tuitionportal.fbtonline.com to set up your user identification and password.

Full instructions for navigating through the website are included with this communication.
Financing Option and Loan Terms: If you choose to finance all or part of your tuition, the annual percentage rate on the tuition loan for St Augustine High School is 7.75%. This rate is fixed over the school term and there is no pre-payment penalty if you decide to pay the loan off early. The loan application is online and no paperwork is required. In addition, there is no credit check required on the applicant(s). A ten-month tuition loan will advance on June 3, 2019, and monthly payments will begin in July 2019 and end in April 2020. An annual fee of $35.00 will be assessed on the advance date of your loan and is billed on your first statement.
