Alaska Youth Orchestras (AYO) is a federally registered 501c(3) organization.
While we maintain working relationships with the Anchorage School District (which owns and operates the Jr. Youth Symphony) we are not affiliated with them.
In order to operate each season, AYO must charge a modest annual tuition to its members.Tuition covers approximately 50% of AYO’s operating budget each season. The remainder of our funding comes through fundraising efforts with individual and corporate donors and grant funding.
Tuition: 2019-20 tuition is not yet determined. 2018-19 tuition was $675 for the year. Payment plans and financial aid are available. The exact amount of each season’s tuition is determined by the AYO Board of Directors each spring with continued effort to keep it as low as possible.
