Financial Aid

About Financial Aid

Pakachoag Music School, in addition to working to keep tuition accessible to average families, wishes to encourage families with limited financial means to contact us regarding financial aid.  Funds are available on a first-come/first-served basis.  If we have allocated all available funds at the time of your inquiry, we still strongly recommend submitting an application so that you may be wait-listed and more likely to secure support as funds become available.

Qualification is based solely on family income, taking into consideration number of dependents and unusual circumstances.

How to Apply

To apply for support, please complete the Online Aid application.  If you need assistance completing the form, please email info@pakmusic.org and let us know a convenient time to connect by phone.   

We’ll need a copy of the first page of your most recent tax form OR some kind of documentation attesting to monthly or annual income.

Are You Linked to a Pakachog Partner?

If you currently participate or attend any of the following partner programs, you likely qualify for “fast track” financial aid.  You can let us know if you are linked to a partner on your application.

Partners are:

  • Elm Park Community School, Worcester
  • Boys & Girls Club of Worcester
  • African Community Education
  • Black Excellence Academy

Like most community schools of the arts, financial aid is an integral component of what it means to be a “community school”.  Only by keeping programs financially accessible to the wider community, can we truly consider ourselves a school of the community. By welcoming families with financial need, our student base moves closer to reflecting the diversity of the larger community.
