Helpful tips for enrollment

  • If the class you would like to register for is full, you can still register and automatically be placed on the waitlist.
  • A one month, non refundable deposit will be collected at the time of enrollment. The deposit will be applied as your last payment for the school year.
  • Payment Options: When enrolling you will have the option to pay in full or enroll in monthly payments. Those who pay in full on or before August 11, 2023 will receive a $100 discount. Monthly payments will be due the 15th of every month, starting August 15, 2023.
  • If you will be registering different children for different classes: Register the first child. When you reach the end of registration you will see your shopping cart with price totals. At the bottom of this page is a button that says ‘Keep Shopping’. Click this to return to the list of classes and register subsequent children.
