Pakachoag Music School, in addition to working to keep tuition accessible to average families, wishes to encourage families with limited financial means to contact us regarding financial aid. Funds are available on a first-come/first-served basis. If we have allocated all available funds at the time of your inquiry, we still strongly recommend submitting an application so that you may be wait-listed and more likely to secure support as funds become available.
Qualification is based solely on family income, taking into consideration number of dependents and unusual circumstances.
Like most community schools of the arts, financial aid is an integral component of what it means to be a “community school”. Only by keeping programs financially accessible to the wider community, can we truly consider ourselves a school of the community. By welcoming families with financial need, our student base moves closer to reflecting the diversity of the larger community.
Families approved to receive support are asked to participate as School Volunteers.
Our daughter has always wanted to play the piano. Without The School and financial aid, we would not have had this door opened for us…This is such an important part of their lives.
