Tuition is due in four installments, paid throughout the year. Tuition is based on a 9 month program (September through May), and is due regardless of class attendance or holiday schedule.

Pricing is determined by the number of hours of classes a student takes a week. Please call or come by the office during office hours to discuss specific pricing, as it is based off each individual’s class schedule.

Payments can be made online through our website, by cash, check, credit card (Visa, Master Card, Discover), and money order. Cash payments must be paid during office hours; checks and money orders can be dropped at the payment box located inside the North Beach studio or mailed to: P.O. Box 578, North Beach, MD 20714. Credit card payments can be processed during office hours, in person, online or via telephone.
