Course fees and Student debts –

How much does your student owe?


Course fees – Some courses require fees to help with the cost of student materials. These fees are standard for all three of the counties’ high schools. Art and Craft courses, Business courses, Family Consumer Science, Pre-Engineering Technology, Photography, Theater and some specialty music courses require these fees. The fees range from $5 to $100 per course. Please check with your student to see if they are taking one of these courses.


Student debts - Students are placed on the Debt List for damaged/destroyed/lost school property that was issued or lent to them, and unpaid course fees or activity fees. Costs will vary depending on the item in question. Returned checks are placed on the Debt List, under the student’s name. Cafeteria money owed becomes a debt for seniors if left unpaid. Once an item is placed on the Debt List it can only be removed by: paying the debt, returning the item, removal requested by the staff member who turned in the debt, or by an Administrator’s decision. 


All of the above items are payable at the school bank. Cash, checks and money orders are accepted. Checks and money orders should be made payable to Great Mills High School or GMHS. Please note that returned checks must be paid for in cash or money order only. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Hickey in the school bank.  Her number is 301-863-4001 ext. 18138, or reach her by e-mail at:
