In addition to a tuition deposit, an annual registration fee is due upon registration: $40 / student; $70 / family. This fee is non-refundable.
Tuition includes a weekly private lesson and the opportunity to participate in additional performance/enrichment activities.
Families paying in full by November 1st for the current academic year (through June) qualify for a $20 discount.
For families with siblings enrolled, we will apply a 10% sibling discount (for each registration beyond the first) prior to the final payment and provide an adjusted statement prior to final payment.
We apply sibling discounts to your total tuition based upon completion of a minimum of 16 lessons.
We operate with a full year payment plan (or pro-rated plan for mid-year enrollments) because most families who come to Pakachoag find they want to stay for the year (and beyond).
If not paying in full at the time of registration, we will automatically place you on the annual Private Lesson Payment plan 18-19 with tuition billed in 5 installments.
We bill Monday students based on a 32 week annual schedule to allow for Labor Day and Memorial Day holidays, and we reduce the annual tuition accordingly.
While the payment plan is set up to reflect enrollment for a full academic year, families are welcome to enroll anytime during the year and we’ll adjust your tuition accordingly.
If for some reason you are unable to continue for the full year, you may withdraw with four weeks notice, and you will be responsible for the cost of these weeks whether the lessons are taken or not. You will be charged for the number of weeks that have elapsed since your start date, plus four. We will refund any over-payment after adjustments are made .
We recommend that you sign on with the intention of a minimum 3 month commitment. This is because it takes a number of weeks for a student to develop a routine of practice and the student develops a better sense of success once they can experience their progress over an extended number of weeks.
We pro-rate mid-session enrollments based on your start date and the number of weeks remaining in the school year calendar (through late May/early June). Payment plan due dates usually remain the same, with dollars due adjusted as appropriate.
We assess late payments a $10 monthly late fee. If payment is not made in a timely manner, lessons will be discontinued.
The School will consider individualized payment plans upon request. Please contact the office for more information.We do not accept payments on a per lesson basis.
