Scholarships & Tuition Assistance

No student is ever turned away for lack of funds. In order to ensure that Little Opera is accessible to all students, sliding scale tuition is available to all families on request. To apply or inquire, email

Our income range to qualify for sliding scale tuition is based on HUD’s San Francisco Family Median Income sheet. Any family at or below 115% of the area median income ($141,600 for a family of 4) automatically qualifies for assistance. If you do not automatically qualify and full tuition is still a hardship, please contact us about your situation.

Email jenny[at]littleopera[dot]org to apply.
