Financial Assistance

SCT is committed to providing access to the arts, regardless of a families financial situation. We at SCT understand the personal financial and greater economic impacts of COVID-19 on the Seattle community and our families. Because of this commitment, we will provide both payment plans and need-based scholarships. Unless prior arrangements are made with the Drama School, the balance of tuition, if any, must be paid in full prior to the start of class.

Payment Plans may be taken advantage of by anyone, regardless of financial need. This option is available to families who prefer to split their balance into two or three installments. No application is required; if you would like to arrange a payment plan, simply email the Drama School at

Scholarships will be granted on a case by case basis to those families who demonstrate a strong financial need, and who would be otherwise unable to participate in our classes. All families, with exceptions granted only in the most extreme cases, will be required to pay a minimum of 30% of tuition costs. Because of budget limitations, we are generally only able to cover one class per student per session in each eligible family. Applications for scholarships are on a rolling basis, but scholarships are limited so please submit your application as early as possible. Applications will be processed on a first- come, first-served basis. You will be notified of your financial aid decision approx. a week after submitting your application.

Applications accepted on a rolling basis, subject to availability.
