The San Diego Children's Choir maintains an extensive need-based financial aid policy. We encourage all interested singers, regardless of economic circumstances, to contact the Choir. The Choir provides financial aid for tuition based on need, with consideration given to a child’s attendance and performance record. A financial aid application is required along with supporting financial documents. Applications are reviewed annually. Financial aid is available for retreats, camps and tours in addition to choir tuition.
PARENTs ASSOCIATION Resources
As a not-for-profit organization, the San Diego Children’s Choir depends daily upon the many parents, grandparents, and other family members, who volunteer to support the Choir. Volunteers provide an array of services and activities each year, including chaperoning performances. The Parents Association provides a variety of extracurricular activities and resources for singers and families, including opportunities for singers to raise money for individual chorister mini-tour/tour accounts and general fundraisers to support tour activities and family events. They also organize an annual open house for parent orientation and the sale of used uniforms.
