An $80.00 registration fee will be charged at the time of registration. Families with more than one student will be charged a $50.00 registration fee for each additional student.

Tuition fees can be found within the specific level description on each program page. Tuition is paid in nine installments on the first of each month and is automatically charged to the credit card on file. The first tuition installment will be charged on September 1, 2023, and the last installment will be charged on May 1, 2024.

Additional tuition information can be found within the policy agreement section when completing online registration. A copy of the policies is emailed to each family following enrollment.


Need-based Financial Aid is available for School of Philadelphia Ballet students at all levels of programming. The application is now open for the 2023-2024 school year.

Applications are processed online by a third party (TADS) who makes award recommendations to SPB. Financial documents are not shared with School staff, and SPB faculty are not aware of which students are need-based scholarship recipients. Applications are not considered until the student has registered for the 2023-2024 school year through the Parent Portal.

Award decisions will be sent by email in September of 2023. Financial assistance is awarded for the current school year, does not apply to summer programming, and is not automatically renewed for the next school year. Financial assistance covers only a portion of tuition and is typically no more than 25% of the total tuition for the school year.

The TADS financial aid application fee is $55.00 and is not refundable.
