Tuition

The annual cost for each child’s membership in the Greeley Children’s Chorale is $450. This is broken down as:

  • $50.00 registration fee (non-refundable)
  • $200.00 tuition
  • $150.00 concert tickets (5 adult tickets @ $10.00 × 3 major concerts)
  • $50.00 uniform deposit

Families with more than one singer in the group will only have to pay the $150.00 ticket fee once — not for each child.

The $50 non-refundable registration fee is due at the time of acceptance into the group. The remaining balance is split into 5 equal payments that are due in July, August, September, October, and November ($80 each).

All payments must be made by the due dates. Please refer to the agreement of understanding provided with your registration materials for this year’s payment schedule. Failure to remit the appropriate funds in a timely manner will result in your child being suspended from the group’s activities until the funds are paid. In addition, there is a $10 late fee per payment.

Any checks returned for insufficient funds will be subject to a fee (which may be in addition to fees from your financial institution), and only cash or money orders may be accepted for payments in the future.

GCC offers both half and full grants for the tuition portion of the payment ($200). Grant recipients are still responsible for paying the remainder of the balance ($250). Requests for tuition grants must be submitted with all necessary documentation in order for the request to be considered.

Below you will see how monthly payments are calculated in a variety of situations. The most common situations are highlighted in blue.

Please note that this chart doesn’t take into account the $50 non-refundable registration fee. Also, if your situation changes and your family either adds or subtracts a singer, your payments will change to reflect this.
