Blue Bear provides significant savings to students of all ages with financial need through our sliding scale tuition program.  The amount of support you receive is based on your gross income from your tax return.  Consult the charts (including for Little Bears and summer camps) below to see if you qualify.  If you do, we’ll need to see a copy of page one of your prior-year tax return.

Please note: sliding scale applicants cannot be listed as a dependent on another person’s tax return; lessons discounts apply to single-lesson and 4-pack prices only.
