PAYMENTS:  Tuition payments may be made via check or cash or online with the Sawyer link on the Registration page.

REGISTRATION FEE:  Each student is charged a non-refundable registration fee.

TUITION PAYMENT OPTIONS:  Monthly tuition is due by the first class of the month.  The option is also available to pay by the semester or year.

LATE FEES:  There will be a 10% late fee added to all tuition not received by the 15th of each month.  Returned checks will be charged additional handling fees.

REFUND POLICY:  No refunds, credits, or transfers to another semester or month.  Students who miss classes or withdraw before the end of a semester or month are still obligated for the full semester or month’s tuition.  Students who are unsure of a full year of attendance should opt for monthly or semester payments as we do not refund tuition. Students are eligible for a pro-rated tuition refund only if they must withdraw from classes due to prolonged illness or severe injury verified by a doctor’s certificate.

OTHER FEES:  Production fees for Nutcracker and Spring Gala Performances and costume expense for the Spring Gala.

SEMESTER/YEARLY PAYMENTS:  Tuition discounts are available for semester or full-year payments by a certain date.  Please note the discount only applies to the actual tuition rate and not to any added fundraiser ‘buy-out options’

* 10% discount for full year payment by September 1st

*  5% discount for full year payment by first week of classes

*  5% discount for semester payment by first week of classes

MONTHLY PAYMENT PLAN:  Payments are due by the first class of each month.  The year’s tuition is divided into 8 equal payments September-June.  Each payment is the same regardless of the number of classes or vacation days in a month.

FUNDRAISER OPT-OUT:  Families who wish to be excluded from all or some fundraising may chose to pay an additional monthly fee separate from their tuition rate.  Every student must complete a tuition option form along with their registration to indicate their choice for the year.
