Financial Aid

Our goal is to ensure that any student who wishes to participate may do so. No student is turned away because of a family’s inability to pay the tuition. Aid is based on need.

“This was a wonderful, positive, and enlightening learning experience for my daughter. This workshop enabled her to acquire a higher sense of self worth and self control. Her confidence has soared, and she has a more optimistic outlook on life. This was the biggest opportunity our family has ever experienced! Thanks again and again.”
