FPTA intentionally keeps pricing low to accommodate as many families as possible, therefore scholarships are minimally offered. If you are requesting a scholarship, we suggest that you write on top of your application, “scholarship request” AND the amount you can afford to pay. We ask that you be reasonable with your requests because we do not receive outside funding to support this program – we operate solely on registration fees. An FPTA staff member will call to discuss your request and your specific needs. FPTA prioritizes the needs of families with existing relationships with FPTA.
