1. Where/how do I apply for scholarships or discounts?
If your child has been approved for and is receiving free meals, he or she will get a 100% discount on all programs. If your child has been approved for and is receiving reduced meals, he or she will get a discount (tuition for one week = $13.00; two weeks = $26.00; three weeks = $39.00)
There is a box that you can check within the registration process to apply for the scholarship or discount. You will need to check this box for each session you have requested enrollment.
Once your application for scholarship or discount has been verified, you will be notified by e-mail either way.

8. What happens if my child is on a waiting list?
