How big are the classes?

Class sizes range for our Classes.

Each class must have a minimum of 5 students (maximum class size is 15 students). The class may be canceled if it does not reach the minimum requirement. TCT Academy staff will decide if that class will be held or not. If class is canceled, you will be notified by phone about other options (switching to a different day, different class etc.) If tuition was paid online you will be refunded; however, most students pay (by check or cash) at the first scheduled class.
For the STAR Intensive NKU Program, our classes range in size. A small class has approximately 18 students, while a large class has approximately 28 students.
For STAR Camp Red Bank, classes range from 30-35 students.

Are there payment plans available or scholarship opportunities?

At this time there are no alternative payment plans offered nor scholarship program options for TCT Academy classes.
For the STAR Intensive NKU and STAR Camp Red Bank Programs, a payment in full date will be specified upon acceptance into the program. If a student has a financial issue regarding payment in full and would like to request a payment plan, they should contact Mary Wright at least 60 days prior to the first day of the program. Our six STAR Intensive NKU scholarships are awarded based on financial need. For more information on scholarships, contact Eric Byrd. A non-refundable deposit is required to secure your spot in each program.

Are there performances at the end of STAR Intensive NKU, STAR Camp Red Bank, and/or other TCT Academy class sessions?

At the conclusion of each TCT Academy class session, there will be a performance to showcase the talents of the students.  The performance is the last class of the session held at their regularly scheduled time.  
STAR Intensive Red Bank has a culminating performance at the end which will take place on the campus of Northern Kentucky University in The Corbett Theatre.
STAR Camp Red Bank has a "showcase" on the last day of classes for immediate family members and/or guardians in our new building at 4015 Red Bank Road, Cincinnati, OH  45227.
