Philadelphia prep school seeks to recoup thousands of dollars in outstanding costs from defendant

By Nicholas Malfitano | Jul 26, 2017

PHILADELPHIA – A Pre-K – Grade 12 prep school in Philadelphia has filed legal action to recoup unpaid tuition and other costs outstanding relating to one of its students.

Springside Chestnut Hill Corporation (doing business as “Springside Chestnut Hill Academy” and “SCH Academy”) of Philadelphia filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on July 20 versus Sharon D. Parker, also of Philadelphia.

On July 28, 2015, Parker executed an online contract from SCH Academy relating to tuition for Christopher Bruce Collins for the 2015-2016 school year, under which she selected an option to pay costs on a monthly basis under the FACTS plan. However, SCH Academy says Parker did not complete an online enrollment application form for the FACTS program.

While racking up a number of fees in regards to tuition and other educational expenses, payment from Parker eventually stopped on the account, according to the litigation. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of enrollment, SCH Academy claimed Parker owed it outstanding payments for tuition costs, attorney’s fees, collection costs and court costs.

For breach of contract, the plaintiff is seeking damages of $10,175.88 plus interest at a rate of one percent per year from June 21, 2016, reasonable attorney’s fees of $1,428.75, collection costs of $2,543.97 and the costs of this action.

The plaintiffs are represented by Derek C. Blasker and Andrew Sklar of Sklar Law, in Voorhees, N.J.
