Financial Aid

Financial aid may be available to eligible students for classes or activities, based on financial need, and is offered on a first come, first serve basis. 

School of the Arts Payment Plans
Payment Plans may be arranged for any class over $100. A minimum of 25% of the tuition must be paid prior to the start of the first class/rehearsal. Payment Plans must be paid off using a credit or debit card that is kept on file for automatic withdrawal. Tuition must be paid off by the final day of the class you are paying for.

Payment Plans can be set up through the Box Office, or through the website (if applicable). For questions regarding Payment Plans contact the Education Director at 262-670-0560, ext. 6 or

Need-Based Scholarships
Need-Based Scholarships can cover up to 50% of SSA tuition for families who apply and qualify, and are mainly allotted to school year sessions (September through May). Families may apply for a single session or for a full school year. Distribution of funds is balanced between the overall needs of our families compared to the amount of funds available in our Education & Inspiration Fund.  Applications are due one month prior to the start of the session. For questions regarding the application process contact the Education Director at 262-670-0560, ext. 6 or

About the Education & Inspiration Fund
The Schauer Arts Center’s Education & Inspiration Fund fosters educational and outreach efforts, specifically related to the School of the Arts (SSA). The primary purpose of this fund is to provide Need-Based Scholarships to help students and their families overcome barriers to enrollment in Schauer Arts Center classes and activities. We thank those who donate to our fund through purchases related to School of the Arts sales, as well as those who contribute through direct donation to the Education & Inspiration Fund.
