Splash offers both partial and complete scholarships, depending on need. Full financial aid (including lunch costs) is typically offered for those who already qualify for, e.g. California Free and Reduced-Price Lunch Programs. Other cases will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Either way, please make sure to fill out the Financial Aid form during the student registration process. We will take a look at your situation and notify you of our decision before the start of the program.
