The Fine Arts Academy

Our School is proud of our reputation for preserving a strong classical tradition. Please review our policies with your child to be sure that the Fine Arts Academy is the right school for you. In an effort to offer all of our students and their families an organized and friendly experience, we will strictly enforce our policies.  


There is a non-refundable registration fee of $75 for all new families payable at the time of registration. A hard copy registration form and waiver must be filled out and returned to the studio for students to be enrolled. The Director has the final say on book levels.  View our Pricing page here.

Lesson Books
Proper Books are to be purchased on Amazon.com.

Accepted payments made by check, cash or Auto Draft. Cash, check, and money order payments are to be made at the Academy. Tuition is due on the 1st of every month.  It remains the same whether it is a (4-week) or short (3-week) month. There is a $20 late fee for tuition received after the 3rd. There is no deduction in tuition for absences or holidays. Classes that are missed due to illness may be made up by correspondence with the instructor. A check written for insufficient funds will be considered late, therefore late fees will apply. If a student must withdraw from class, the Director must be notified 1 month in advance. Parents or guardians are held accountable for all fees due until notification has been received. A payment schedule may be arranged for families with financial hardship.

Arrival and Departure from Lessons

Please be on time to drop off and pick up students. The Academy is not responsible for your child before or beyond their scheduled class time. Students who are not picked up from the studio within 15 minutes of the conclusion of their class time (without prior arrangements with the instructor) will be charged $1 for every minute the instructor is kept waiting. Students who arrive late may be asked to observe class for their safety. Come into the building to pick up young students. For the safety of all our students, we ask that they remain inside the building.

Lobby Etiquette
The lobby area is available to parents while students are attending or waiting for class to begin. However, all young children must be under the supervision of a responsible adult.  Please keep young children within arm’s reach, and accompany them to the restroom. The teacher cannot leave the studio to assist your child.
