Tuition and Scholarship FAQs

How much is RFYO tuition? 

Tuition for one semester is $200. Tuition for the full school year is $400. Tuition cannot be prorated based on weekly attendance, but can sometimes be adjusted based on participating during a certain segment of the year. Payment for the fall semester is due in full by October 15, and by February 15 for the spring semester. 

Can I pay in installments?

Yes, everyone is welcome to pay in installments. Just let Sarah know when you make your first payment.

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.

How do I apply for scholarship?

After completing the registration form, complete the financial aid form as well.  RFYO Financial Aid Form

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 $400 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!
