Hello, Everyone!

 

Registration for the Flying Gravity Circus Fall Season is now open! The following outlines tuition for this season along with some important information from our Tuition Policy.

 

We have decided not to return to the sliding-fee system of scaled tuition. Instead, we relied upon the actual cost of running our programs during the fall. This takes into account expenses such as insurance coverage, payroll fees, administrative and bookkeeping assistance, equipment acquisitions, coaching fees, production costs, etc.

 

The fall season will run from September 9 through November 13. Payment may be made in full at the start of the season, or in three installments, each due on the first of the month for September, October, and November. We have carefully constructed a budget that reduces the actual cost per Trouper from $1400, as it was in the spring, to a seasonal $850 Blue Troupe, $800 for Green Troupe, and $500 for Pre-Troupe. Tuition may be paid in full at the start of the season, or in three installments, each due on the first of the month for September, October, and November.

A $50 deposit must be made at the time of registration. (This is reduced to $25 for families applying for scholarships.  Registration will not be considered complete until the deposit has been made. This amount will be deducted from the remaining tuition balance.

For families with more than one child in any of the FGC Troupes, there will be a $50 discount for each registration after the first Trouper (i.e. child #1 pays in full, child #2 gets $50 discount, child #3 gets $50 discount, etc).

 

We understand that while we have been able to set tuition at a lower rate than what was asked for in the spring season, these are still significant amounts for many families. This is, however, the reality of what it costs to run the programs at the current time. We remain committed to supporting all Troupers in accessing the Flying Gravity Circus programs, regardless of financial situation, and continue to offer scholarship funds to families who cannot afford to pay the full amount. Our scholarship application is available on the website, and must be filled online before the deadline of August 31. If the deadline is missed, scholarships may not be awarded.

 

We anticipate being classified as a charitable organization, able to accept tax-deductible donations, in future seasons. This will allow us to pursue more proactive fundraising strategies to further reduce the cost of tuition. In the meantime, if anyone has ideas around fundraising and is available to coordinate those activities, this may be a creative way to lower the cost of tuition for everyone. Please speak to Jon Roitman with any suggestions.

 

Please feel free to direct any tuition-related questions to the following members of FGC's Finance Committee: Jon Roitman, Megan Sass, and/or Brian Miron.
