Financial Aid



About Financial Aid

Thanks to a leadership gift from the Gadsden Cultural Arts Foundation and additional gifts from other donors, the School for the Arts is able to provide partial financial aid to needy students who meet a series of qualifications. Aid is available to present or future students in all programs of the school. In order to qualify, students must submit this form along with a copy of their family’s most recent tax form to demonstrate significant financial need. Since funds are limited, please be sure to apply early.

Families must apply yearly for financial aid. In order to be renewed, students must show commitment through attendance at all activities required in the program funded. After one semester, students with significant absences may lose support for the next semester at the discretion of the registrar. In general, financial aid will cover only partial tuition, and never covers registration fees and instructional supply fees or instruments.

Award Obligations:

  • Consistent attendance at lessons, classes, and/or ensembles.
  • Consistent practice and preparation for lessons, classes, and ensembles.
  • Positive evaluations from teacher.
  • Recipient must pay tuition bills not covered by financial aid.
