The Institute is committed to providing all children with equal access to the arts and in addition to providing subsidized tuition also offers need-based financial assistance to attend classes throughout the school year and for Summer Camp.
A limited amount of financial assistance is available to Member Families each semester dependent on availability of funds. Only registered Membership Program Families are eligible to apply. Most assistance includes partial financial aid awards and extended payment plans.
Financial Aid is awarded on the basis of need. Applicants may be requested to provide pay stubs, tax information and/or any other information about financial hardship.
Other factors used to determine Financial Aid awards include:
- Students positive participation and commitment to the arts
- Family’s Membership status being in good standing including having completed fundraising and volunteer commitment
- Total # of previous financial awards
Financial assistance requests must be made in person.
