Accessibility at North House
Scholarships, Work Study, and Local Discount
We believe that craft education should be accessible to anyone with an interest in learning, and that the mission of our school is made richer by welcoming a diverse range of students to our campus.
To that end, our organizational values have guided the creation of three key efforts to create greater access to our programs.
- Work Study Program
- Scholarship Program
- Local Discount

New Course Registration System!
An exciting shift has occurred with the course registration process at North House! After more than a year of planning, we have implemented a new, more robust system for registration through our website. Things might look a little different, but we’re confident it will allow for you, the student, to have a better experience with the process.
The biggest difference you will notice is the need to create an account in order to register for a course. Once you are logged in, you can not only register yourself for a class, but can register for a friend or family member as well. After establishing an account, you will also be able to login anytime to find out what courses you have signed up for. The full roll-out of all of the available features will likely take a couple of months, but in the end this new system will provide better communication between North House, students, and instructors.
Please have a sense of humor and some patience with this new system in the coming weeks as we work out some inevitable bugs – the end result should be fantastic!
