Tuition

Please print this information for your year-round reference for tuition, holidays and make-up classes. No other notices are sent out. ATTENTION – PLEASE NOTE THAT THE RECITAL FEE NOW INCLUDES THE COSTUME CHARGE. Due to the extensive effort and administrative time to collect individual checks for costumes, the Recital Fee now includes the charge for your child’s costume. You will not get a separate bill for the costume during the second semester.

Make all checks payable to Laura Machanic, and please note the spelling of MACHANIC. Do NOT make checks out to School for Swans.

Please understand that this is a commitment for the full year from September through May. We build towards the May recital all year, and costumes are ordered in December. The costume fee is non-refundable if your child withdraws because we cannot get a refund after 5 days following the order.

* The recital fee helps pay the rental for rehearsal and recital time at First Baptist Church of Alexandria.   Each child registered must pay the recital fee as it is somewhat based per child.  An average costume cost has been figured and included with the recital fee.

**If registering one child for two classes you may deduct $50 from your total as we do not charge a second registration fee. (The second $65 costume/recital fee is still charged.) If registering two children, all fees apply to each child.
