Fall Registration for members opens August 7-11


Fall Registration for everyone opens August 14


Registration/Tuition

Students register for a full quarter and payment is required at the time of registration. Each student will be charged for the amount of lessons from the date of registration until the end of the quarter.

Fees and payments will be posted to your account on the next business day. Please make sure you have a current credit card on your account.

Tuition is non-refundable for any reason other than cancellation of the activity by the teacher. If the teacher cancels your lesson; you will then receive a credit on your account for that missed lesson. There is no credit given if a teacher is absent and a substitute teacher is provided.

Tuition is not refundable due to weather related closures, a student's cancellation, absence, or withdrawal from an activity for any reason. Tuition is non-transferable except where noted.


Tuition Payments

On-line payments for lessons, books or other items will be posted to the credit card on file on the next business day after registration or purchase.


Membership Fee

A family annual membership fee of $10 will be posted to your account on October 1st of each year. This tax-deductible contribution to our nonprofit school allows us to produce an e-newsletter to keep you informed of arts events and opportunities as well as St. Francis Music Center and student news. This fund also helps cover costs of presenting student recitals.

Registering for classes and managing your account is even easier with our new mobile app.
