Tuition

All youth registrations occur in person, by online system or phone thru the CORE Academy office:

  • Payments are collected one of two ways; IN FULL or broken up EQUALLY into TEN parts. For your ease, we collect payments September - June. Regardless of those months where 5 lessons occur, where holiday breaks occur, etc.

There are TEN EQUAL payments:

  • Tuition is based on a 10 month payment schedule for the school year. If you pay monthly, you are choosing to separate your payment EQUALLY regardless of the quantity per month. If you choose to pay up front, we calculate from start date through June.

How does CORE compare in cost:

  • CORE’s lessons follow an organized syllabus in each discipline. We’ve broken the payment methods down to better suit your budgeting needs and we still pride ourselves on our professionally experienced, college/university graduate staff; your kids will never be taught by a non-professional.
