Policies & Payments
We have a variety of payment plans and options to cover the tuition for the Graham Academy. Please see below the plan and options corresponding with the various programs.
Registration will not be secure until we receive the $50 non-refundable tuition deposit. This can be paid by sending an e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by Mastercard/Visa by emailing email@example.com
(a 3.5% processing fee will be applied).
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inform your deposit payment method choice.
A $50 deposit required upon registration.
This deposit will hold your child’s spot in the program as there are limited spaces available. This is a non-refundable fee and will be applied to the total tuition.
Post-dated cheques accepted in the following instalment options (after deposit):
9 equal instalments (Sept 21st, Oct 21st, Nov 21st, Dec 21st, Jan 21st, Feb 21st, Mar 21st, April 21st, and May 21st)

To pay by Visa/Mastercard, please email email@example.com.
Should a special request be made regarding payment arrangements, consideration can be given on an individual basis.
All tuition cheques are due by the dates indicated.
Fees are set for the entire year and can be paid by a variety of methods. This is not a monthly fee. It is a program fee for the year that parents may pay on a monthly basis if they choose to do so. This fee is developed based on the estimated costs of running the program from September – June.
All September fees must be paid upon registration in September. Postdated cheques are required for the entire amount of the monthly fee for the remainder of the season (October to May). Postdated cheques will be cashed during the third week of each month.
REFUND AND RECEIPT POLICIES
The Graham Academy team understands that not every program is right for every child. Therefore, we adhere to a 3 - week withdrawal policy. If after 3 weeks you find that this program is not the right fit for your child, you may withdraw your child with a full refund (less $50 deposit).
Should a student withdraw from the program at any other time, 30 days’ notice is required. Withdrawals must be forwarded in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. 30 days’ notice is not required for documented medical withdrawals.
There are no refunds after May 1st of each year.
If a parent loses their receipt, you can request a photocopy of the original receipt. Original receipts given at registration will be the only original copy issued to a payee. Taxes can be claimed on these receipts. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you keep them until the end of the tax year.
Register in more than one 2021/22 program and you will receive 10% off of the regular tuition for each additional program of equal or lesser value for the rest of the year.
Families with 3 or more family members registered
First and second family members pay the full fee in all programs registered.
Third and fourth family member receives a 50% discount on all programs registered (applied to the lowest of these members fees).
Every additional family member is free of charge.
High School Students
We have two options for high school students that would like the opportunity to lessen registration fees:
Graham Academy Assistant positions. Students accepted into this program will receive up to 50% discount on their Musical Theatre Program tuition or The Choral Program. These roles may include administrative work, venue management and care, production assistant, promotion, etc. Positions are limited - apply early!
Graham Academy Teacher Assistant positions. Students accepted into this program will receive up to 50% discount on their Musical Theatre Program tuition. These positions will give students a chance to work with and be trained by some of the finest music and theatre teachers in the province. Positions are very limited - apply early!
Note: Discount policies cannot be used in combination with any other discount policy. In all cases, the policy that is most beneficial to the family will apply. Graham Academy refund policy still applies minus non-refundable tuition deposit of $50
