This information includes all tuition/fee related items. 

General Information
Payment plans are available for each orchestra. Information regarding these payment plans may be found on the Tuition Form on the Forms page or enclosed in your new member packet. 

New World Youth Orchestras expects each student in each orchestra to obtain at least $50 in sponsorships from individuals or businesses - many go above and beyond!  These student sponsors will receive mention in each program.  Click here for more information about this program.
