Online Payments

ONLINE PAYMENTS FOR THE 2022-23 SCHOOL YEAR

 

The online payment system is accessible through the PowerSchool Parent Portal for enrolled students — click here. This system allows you to pay selected fees, make fee payments for all students in your family, view your payment history, print receipts, make partial payments, setup a payment plan and more.

 

School fees must be paid online. Note: You must have your PowerSchool Login to access the online payment system through the Parent Portal. Alternatively, you can sign up for Online Payments directly through the RYCOR payment site. Parents must have the Student ID of the account on which they'd like to make payments. Here are the steps for this method.

 

  1. Browse to the following site: https://www.studentquickpay.com/hfhighschool
  2. Select "Create Account"
  3. Enter "First Name", "Last Name',"E-Mail", "Confirm E-Mail", "Password", "Confirm Password"
    *Password has to be minimum 6 characters
  4. Select "Add Students"
  5. Enter "Student ID", "Last Name" and select "Add Student" button
  6. Once done adding students, select "Done" to view Parent account

After completing the online payment process, print a receipt for your records.

 

In order to receive reduced the reduced registration fee ($295), you must complete the entire registration process by Aug. 10, 2022. A student is not enrolled in school until the entire process is complete. The regular fee for this school year is $350.

 

Graduated seniors who still need to pay fees will no longer have access to online payments through PowerSchool and must use the alternate method (above).

A NOTE ABOUT THE PAYMENT PLAN & PARTIAL PAYMENTS

 

Payment plans are handled within the fee payment system, accessed through the PowerSchool Parent Portal. There are two options; you can choose what best fits your situation.

From the PowerSchool Parent Portal, choose "Pay Student Fees" from the navigation menu on the left side.

Once you've logged in to the fee system, the system assumes by default that you want to pay the full balance. But, click on the shopping cart in the upper right hand corner; it will take you to a very similar page.

The new page has two options: (1) Payment Plan and (2) Partial Payment.

If you choose "Payment Plan", it will take the full account balance and divide it evenly into payments to be taken on the first of each month through May. Based on today's date, the balance would be paid in two equal installments on April 1st and May 1st.

If you choose "Partial Payment", that is a flexible option that allows you to pay any amount and frequency that works best for you. Each partial payment is a one-time occurence, so you would do this every time you want to make a payment. When using this option, after choosing "partial payment" you would look to the far right side of the screen. Uncheck whatever items you're not paying at that time. If the remaining checked item(s) add up to more than the payment you want to make (for example, you want to pay $100 against the $295 early registration fee), the green total at the bottom can be edited. In that box you can edit to make it the amount you're trying to pay at that time.
