Tuition and Fees

Tuition must be paid upon registration unless scholarship arrangements. are made or payment plans have been established. Call for details.

Students remaining on the roll after Friday, September 10 will be responsible for the full semester’s tuition.

Placement

Acceptance into all Production Classes and the Academy Professional Artist Training track is by audition only. Our goal is to give each student the opportunity to excel, and therefore, it is important for each student to have the training, experience and maturity necessary to achieve success. We will evaluate each student and recommend the appropriate classes, productions and roles based on what will best suit each student’s needs and abilities.

Forced Closure and Covid Quarantine

In the event that our live classes are forced to quarantine and no longer be in person, we will move to an online format. The Thelma Gaylord Academy reserves the right to make instructor changes should this occur. No refunds will be provided should our in-person classes be migrated to an online format. If your student must miss class because of a Covid exposure quarantine, we will arrange a zoom screen to provide access to the class(es) from home.
