Application Process
Please complete the entire application, including attaching a copy of your most recently filed federal income tax return. If your child receives subsidized school lunch, no need to attach tax form – just please send in the form that shows they receive subsidized lunch. If you do not file a federal income tax form, please submit copies of other verification of annual income and/or support. Materials may also be submitted in person, by mail or fax. Submissions from families with an outstanding tuition balance will not be considered until the balance is paid in full. Please note that applicants are always required to pay a portion of the class fee.

How Awards are Determined
Reduced tuition (scholarship) is awarded based on financial need to as many recipients as possible.

Recipient Obligations
Scholarship recipients must pay a portion of tuition for any given class. The recommended amount is 25% of tuition. Each application is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. However, on average, the recommended minimum amount to be paid by recipient will be 25% of tuition. This payment must be made in full a least one week prior to the start of the specific program. Scholarship recipients must consistently attend class as scheduled. Poor attendance may result in expulsion from program and/or denial of subsequent scholarship requests.
