Financial Aid

When can I apply for Financial Aid? 

Financial aid applications open:

  • Academic Year: June 1
  • Priority Re-enrollment: May 1
  • Summer: April 15

What is the process for financial aid?

Charitable contributions allow us to offer limited financial aid to those who demonstrate a need. The amount of aid awarded is based on household income and family size. Financial aid does not pay for lessons/classes in full. Continued aid is dependent upon attendance, teacher/director evaluation and ongoing need. NMS reserves the right to discontinue any financial aid because of frequent absences or tardiness, or because of delinquent lesson payments.

Due to the volume of applications, we have granted all financial aid awards for this academic year.
We are thankful to all our generous supporters who have made these awards possible. We will continue our efforts to secure additional funding in the future.
