Tuition Payment Options

The Harlem School of the Arts (HSA) offers its families the flexibility of payment plan options, allowing the convenience of paying your tuition in full or in installments over the year. Tuition and fees must be paid before a student is admitted to a lesson or class. Effective August 18, 2019 a non-refundable registration fee of $25 will be added to all registrations.
