Policies & Procedures



A non refundable registration fee of $30.00 per semester is due for the first family member and registration for each additional family member is $20. With a family maximum of $70.  Registration fees must be paid before a student is considered registered. Tuition payments are to be pre-paid for each month and due by the first day of each month. Payments made after the 15th day of the month will incur an additional charge of 10% of that month’s tuition fee. Tuition may be paid in full at any time.


All students and instructors are expected to honor their lesson or class times; however, we know emergencies arise. The following policy is in place:

1. For Private Lessons
Make-up lessons will be scheduled for those providing 24 hours prior notice. Contact either the instructor or the school director via email at arts@northshelbybaptist.org or at 205-365-7476. A maximum of two (2) excused absences are allowed each semester.

2. Excused Absences
Excused absences include student illness, extreme emergency, or death in the family.

3. Unexcused Absences
Any absences other than those listed above are considered unexcused. In the case of unexcused absences missed lessons will be charged at the monthly tuition rate.

4. For Group Classes
No make-ups or credits are given for group classes.


There will be no regularly scheduled lessons taught during the week of Thanksgiving or Spring Break. The School of Performing Arts follows Shelby County School System for inclement weather school closings. Scheduled lessons will continue when school is out at any other time. Please coordinate with your instructor if you need to be absent.
