a scholarship after you applied and paid your camp cost, we will refund the
appropriate amount to your parents immediately following camp.
All-State Honors Discount:
Students earning placement in this school year's South Carolina All-State Honors Band/Orchestra/Jazz Ensemble (or the equivalent in other states) are eligible for a tuition reduction.

- $100 off - Student LISTED as SEATED in the All-State Band/Orchestra
- $ 75 off - Student LISTED as an ALTERNATE to the All-State Band/Orch

An email or letter from your director via their school account or a copy of the official concert program or other official association document with your name hi-lighted is sufficient.
