Discount & Refund Policies

Summer 2024 Discount and Refund Policies 

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

Course Discounts

Employee Discount
Town of Franklin employees who regularly work 20 or more hours per week during the school year may enroll their minor children in most courses at a 10% discount. 

Need-Based Scholarships 

Scholarships are available for Franklin Public Schools students in K-12 who are registering for classes held at an FPS location and who are currently eligible and have been approved for free or reduced lunch can receive 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.  

Scholarship Fees:
The student will receive a discounted price based on their free or reduced lunch eligibility/approval as follows:

Free Lunch = 90%  discount on the class fee
Reduced Lunch = 50% discount on the class fee

Payment is due at the time of registration and follows our class withdrawal/cancelation policy.
