Tuition for School Year
2021-22

 

There are four ways to pay tuition. Tuition is discounted when signing up for automatic payments or paying the annual tuition in full. The school year calendar allocates 38 weeks for individual lesson time each Academic Calendar Year year beginning in August each year and ending in August the next year.

The 38 Lesson Academic Calendar Year includes a 34 Week School Year and a 4 Lesson Summer Session. The 34 Week School Year individual lessons must be attended at your scheduled weekly individual lesson time. The 4 Lesson Summer Session can be scheduled any weeks your teachers have openings during the summer session, but are expected to stay on the same day of the week and time of day as you were scheduled during the School Year. If your teacher’s schedule permits, summer lessons can be scheduled two in a week or even all four in one week to create a “summer camp” for students, for those that make plans to be away most of the summer.
