As a nonporfit school, we work hard each year to raise scholarship dollars through the support of generous donors. If the cost of lessons / workshops at the Harper School is beyond your financial means, you may be eligible for a scholarship.
Scholarship assistance is NOT awarded based on race, age, sex, color, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, disability or marital status.
We have limited scholarship assistance available for motivated students who demonstrate a strong commitment to their study. Scholarship awards will be reviewed each semester and can be removed at any time if the teacher or executive director feels that sufficient progress is not being made.
Because of the limited scholarship dollars available, scholarship assistance is awarded on a first come, first served basis.
Although we generally offer partial scholarships (20-50% of tuition), full scholarships are available based on special needs and circumstances.
