Discount, Withdrawal, Refund and Minimum Age Policies

The Lifelong Learning Institute is a self-sustaining department of the Franklin Public Schools. The success of our program relies on your participation and tuition. 

Course Discounts*
Senior 
People 65 years of age and older may enroll in courses at a 10% discount with the exception of food and wine courses or off-site courses with private providers. 

Employee
Town of Franklin employees who regularly work 20 or more hours per week during the school year may enroll themselves or their minor children in courses at a 10% discount with the exception of food and wine courses or off-site courses with private providers. 

Need-Based Scholarships
Franklin Public Schools students in K-12 who are registering for classes held at a FPS location and who are currently receiving free or reduced lunch are eligible for one scholarship per quarter (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer) in any of  the following Lifelong Learning Institute programs:  Community Learning, Music Academy, Solutions Extended Learning or Summer Programs.

Example:  Scholarship for a course covering multiple quarters means the student is ineligible for additional scholarships in any of the included quarters.

 *discounts cannot be combined - only one discount per class
