Registration, Tuition and Supplies
Registration and service fees are paid
annually for each school year. Tuition is paid by semester, from September - January, and February - June. Optional
summer classes are billed separately.
The non-refundable registration fee is
$55 per family, and/or $30 for seniors each
school year. Tuition will vary
according to the courses selected. If
a student starts after the beginning of a
semester the fee will be prorated depending
on the number of remaining weeks.
Tuition for each semester may be paid in
full at the beginning of the fall and spring
semesters or in a payment plan. If a
payment plan is elected, there is a
non-refundable service fee of $25 per family
for the school year. Amounts due on a
payment plan must be paid according to the
due dates. Students who are behind on
payments will be temporarily suspended until
the amount due is paid. Payments for
registration and other fees and tuition are
payable by check, credit card or money order
only. No tuition payments will be
accepted in cash.
Payments for music and/or art supplies
must be made by cash, check, credit card or
money order at the time of purchase.
There will be no tuition refunds after the
end of October for the fall semester, or the
end of March for the spring semester.
Otherwise tuition refunds will be prorated
based on the number of remaining weeks in
the semester. Registration and other
fees are not refundable.
Use Drop/Add forms to drop/add, change name,
address and other information.
Students are expected to attend all
registered classes, throughout the school
year. If a student informs us of an
absence at least 24 hours in advance, then a
makeup class will be offered. If a
student misses a class without sufficient
notice no refund or make-up class will be
offered. Teachers are expected to make
up lessons they miss or there will be a
refund or credit given for the missed time
(theory and solfege class excluded).
If a student is absent frequently, the
school reserves the right to cancel classes
for the student.
For each student there will be opportunities
to perform, exhibit and attend school
events. After two full semesters and
on recommendation from teachers, private
lesson students may audition for additional
lesson time at no additional charge.
Limited financial assistance is available
for students who qualify under school
guidelines. Proof of need must be
demonstrated. See the registrar for
