Financial Aid & Scholarships

Third Street accepts applications for financial aid online. Financial aid applications are processed through School and Student Services (SSS).

Returning students are given priority for need-based financial aid. Any student that has a completed application on file for 2017-18 (including Summer 2017) will have their award amount automatically renewed for 2018-19 (including Summer 2018). However, if family income or financial circumstances have changed significantly you are welcome to submit an application for 2018-19. 

The school is still accepting financial aid applications.

Application Deadlines for 2018-19

February 1, 2018 - Third Street Summer Camp
May 15, 2018 - Summer individual instruction and youth workshops
May 15, 2018- Music and Dance activities for 2018-19 academic year

Applications received after these deadlines will be reviewed until funds are exhausted.
