TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

The BW Community Arts School is committed to ensuring that programs remain accessible to all members of the community. Two Community Arts School endowments help support tuition assistance for the academic year programs.

Academic Year Tuition Assistance


SPRING 2023 TUITION ASSISTANCE

Available to All Current & New CAS Families

CAS offers tuition assistance each semester to ensure our classes, ensembles and private lessons remain accessible to all members of our community. Although tuition assistance awards are determined by financial need, families of all income levels are encouraged to apply.

  • November 21, 2022 - Spring Tuition Assistance Application Opens

If you are awarded tuition assistance, you will receive an email stating the amount of your award based on your application. A typical award is no more than 50% of the total cost. This amount can be used towards your spring semester tuition.
