Sliding scale rates are based upon financial need. To apply you must provide us with information regarding total household income (annual, monthly, or weekly). We must also be provided with information regarding the number of occupants or dependents in your household. Our guidelines require this information in order to accurately and fairly determine need. Special circumstances will be considered. Only the Program Director will have access to this information. He alone will have knowledge of the families’ financial status and the students financial category. This is done to protect your privacy and your child’s privacy. We ask that your financial status remain private. No discussion of Financial Aid is to be exchanged between parents or children. To do so may put your continuation in the program at risk. We ask that you please respect our position in this matter. Sliding scale rates fall into five tiers,$4, $5, $8, $10, and $12 per class hour. Full Scholarships are available depending upon need, ability and circumstances.
