Dear Parents of Sunshine Cottage Students,

Registration for the 2020 – 2021 school year at Sunshine Cottage begins on Monday, May 4th online at A video tutorial will also be posted on our website to assist in registering.

By now you should have received notification if your son or daughter was awarded a scholarship. If your child did not receive a scholarship, don’t worry, Sunshine Cottage still offers tuition assistance for our students that are deaf or hard of hearing.

During the registration process you will be shown an amount that reflects the full tuition, which is due to the fact that this is the first time Blackbaud is setting up your Smart Tuition account. Once the account is completely set up, our Finance Department will be able to enter the scholarships and any financial aid assistance.

If, when you login and do not see a contract for your child, it could be that there is a hold on your account. All accounts must be current through March. If you have questions about your hold, you can contact Raye Ann Short at

While registration will run for two weeks, we are asking you to register early. The electronic registration process is new for Sunshine Cottage and we may need some additional time to make sure everything works smoothly.

You will receive an email with instructions for financial assistance. Financial assistance will also be done online at the Smart Aid.

If you should have any questions do not hesitate to contact Sunshine Cottage.

Belinda Pustka

Executive Director
