Tiered Tuition: BAX is committed to offering high-quality and accessible arts programs for all. As such, each term’s tuition is priced at three tiers, which includes sliding scale tuition of up to 40% subsidy so that each family can assess the tuition price that works best for their household. This is based on an honor system of your-expressed-need (we do not require financial documentation). By paying what you are able, you help us better meet the needs of other families. Registration is taken on a first come, first serve basis, and half of the tuition must be received to secure a spot.

Active Processing Fee: Registrations through Active, our online registration system, include a non-refundable per registration processing fee of $2.50 (for registrations less than $125) or $5.95 (for registrations $125 and above). This per registration fee replaces our $35 Annual registration fee for term registrations (not year-long workshops*). Credit Card processing fees are paid by BAX and we encourage you to use e-checks when possible as they incur lower fees.
