tuition

  • How does Aspire calculate tuition?

    • Tuition is calculated by the number of hours each dancer is registered for per week at the rates listed below.  It is processed through our Family Portal which can be accessed at the top right of the screen or through our Registration page. For families with multiple students enrolled, tuition will be calculated based on the combined hours of the family's students.

    • Creative Movement and Pre-ballet tuition is calculated per class at the rates below.

    • Fall and Spring Semester are both 19 weeks. 

  • When is tuition due?

    • Tuition will be posted monthly on the 5th of the month or the preceding business day. Families who wish to pay in full for the semester may also do so by October 5th and February 5th. Families may also choose to enroll in auto-pay in their Family Portal account. Auto-pay tuition accounts will be automatically charged when tuition is posted.

    • For Fall Semester:

      • Prior to August 17th, the first week of fall enrollment is due upon registration, and the rest of September tuition will be charged on September 5th. *Please note Saturday classes only occur 3 weeks in September, so the 25% of tuition charged will be slightly less than one week of tuition*. 

      • After August 18th, September tuition is due in full at registration. ​

    • After the start of fall semester, the first month of tuition is due open enrollment. 

  • Is there a registration fee?

    • There is a $25 registration fee for Semester registrations. For families registering multiple students, your registration fee will be $30 total. This non-refundable fee is due at registration and is due only once per Summer Session and per School Year.

  • What else should I know?

    • All tuition is non-refundable; however, exceptions are made with a doctor’s note stating the medical reason necessary for withdrawal or if a class is cancelled due to low enrollment and a substitution is not available.

    • Students will be auto-enrolled in their current classes for the next month and the next semester during a school year. If you wish to change your student's enrollment, you must notify us in writing by the last day of the previous month to avoid being charged for classes you wish to drop or change. 

    • All classes and Summer Programs are subject to minimum and maximum enrollment. 

  • Is financial assistance available?

    • Aspire offers scholarships and discounted tuition to qualifying families and students. Reach out to us via email or phone to find out more.
