While OHMI is an approved provider for SOARCE, we do not have a contract with SOARCE. The contract is between the parents and the Madison Heights School District. If you have questions about the program, it is best to contact SOARCE directly for accurate answers. If you have billing questions related to SOARCE, you can contact our Treasurer at

One frequently asked question is “Why do I have to pay the $50 deposit/child fee when I register if SOARCE is paying for my classes?” Once you register, we dedicate resources to classroom space, staff, and purchase music for your child that cannot be returned.  Paying the deposit indicates you are committed to enrolling your child while we commit resources to teach your child. You may also have to pay your portion of the tuition, or other fees for things such as concert attire, early in the semester.  We receive the government funding late each semester.  If payment of this initial deposit results in a credit balance at the end of the semester, we will refund the credit to you. Upon registration, we will provide you an expected cost for your family based on our information from SOARCE.  If you are at one of the Orientation and Audition days, there will be staff to guide you through the pricing and expected payment schedule.
