The Rock School offers two tuition discounts for the school-year program. Discounts may not be combined with other scholarships or discounts. All discounts must be entered manually so paper registration is recommended. The discounts available for the 2018- 2019 school year are as follows:

Pay-in-Full– If a student’s annual tuition (for the entire school year, September through June) is paid in full, the student will receive 5% off the total tuition. This applies to all dance, residence, and academics tuition. Discount cannot be used if student has already been awarded a scholarship.

Sibling– Discount applies to families with at least two children enrolled in any dance program at the same time who do not have another scholarship or discount. A 5% discount will be applied to the tuition of the student with the lower tuition. Contact The Rock School for more information.
