Scholarship options

Because our Suzuki School was set up as a non-profit we have the freedom to fund raise for our scholarship program! Through the generosity of our donors, we are able to offer limited scholarships to families who meeting the eligibility requirements for the reduced price school lunch program. 

If you believe you qualify, or have financial need, we encourage you to reach out to our program director Mary Flanagan and request a scholarship application. 

This simple form allows our board to determine your eligibility.
