Discounted tuition for early registration, by August 1st, is $400. Register by August 1st and then pay part or all of tuition at that time. If you are applying for scholarship, the scholarship application is due by August 1st, but no tuition is due at that time.


Tuition cannot be prorated based on weekly attendance. Payment for the fall semester is due by September 15, and by February 15 for the spring semester(in full or an installment). Complete tuition is due by May 1.

Should my child be enrolled in private lessons too?

Yes, regular private lessons are required for all string players in order to help students succeed and thrive in both their own playing and in the RFYO. Need-based partial and full scholarships for private lessons and tuition are available in order to make this possible for all students.

What if I can't afford to pay anything right now, can I still register my child for RFYO?

Yes, absolutely. No payment is required in order to register. All students are accepted into the RFYO regardless of their ability to pay tuition. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns at any time in the year.  

How can I support the RFYO program?

The RFYO offers all families the subsidized tuition rate of $450 per year. The actual tuition rate that would cover the full cost of the RFYO program is much higher. If you are able to make a contribution to the RFYO, all donations are tax-deductible. Donating through Colorado Gives or by check ensures that all of your donation goes to the RFYO without extra fees. Thank you!
