Prince William String Academy works on a rolling admission basis. New students joining can start anytime and their tuition will be prorated.
- Tuition is based on enrollment. Not attendance. The tuition fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
There will be a 3 week grace period for new students at the beginning of each term. If at the end of the 3 weeks you feel that lessons are not right for you or your child, you will refunded the remaining 8 lessons. There will be no refunds after the 3rd week- no exceptions.
We accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. For your convenience we also offer automatic billing through our online payment processing portal. This is a proven safe, secure and convenient way to pay ongoing fees while enrolled at the school. Upon registering, you will be billed for the lessons remaining in the term.
We have a late payment fee policy of $15 per student. If tuition payments are not received by the seventh day of the month it is considered late and the fee will automatically be applied, no exceptions. It is the students/parents responsibility to ensure we have been provided a valid credit/debit card information if enrolled in automatic billing.
Prince William String Academy reserves the right to suspend or discontinue instruction of any student who is delinquent in fulfilling his/her financial obligations at any time.
Prince William String Academy reserves the right to dismiss any student due to frequent absences, disciplinary problems, overdue tuition payments and/or parental noncompliance with Prince William String Academy policies.
Insufficient Class Enrollment/Cancellation
If any class has insufficient enrollment Prince William String Academy reserves the right to cancel the course or to offer the class with an adjusted tuition rate, length and/or number of class meetings.
Students arriving late will not have their lesson time extended.
Student Absence and Make-Up Lessons
1 makeup lesson per month is allowed per student. If the teacher was notified 24 hours in advance than he/she will work with you to find a makeup day that is mutually agreeable. There will be no makeup lessons for notifications less than 24 hours before the scheduled lesson and the fee is billable.
In case of a teacher’s absence, a qualified substitute may be brought in or your teacher will work to find a mutually agreeable day for the makeup lesson. This would not go against your allotted monthly makeup lesson.
If a makeup lesson is cancelled or “no show” than the lesson will be billable and no make up lesson will be scheduled.
If the studio is closed due to inclement weather, students will be given make-up lessons.
To ensure your child’s safety, children under the age of 7 will not be allowed to wait in the reception area unattended. It is expected that everyone wait quietly as to not disturb ongoing lessons. Please do not drop off students more than 10 minutes prior to lesson time and pick them up promptly. Prince William String Academy faculty and staff do not supervise children waiting in the reception area before and/or after classes/lessons.
Any photographs, audio or videos of students or families on Prince William String Academy facilities and/or events may be used in promotional publications, website or press releases. There will be no compensation for the release.
