The full program cost will be refunded if the request to drop is received in writing one month prior to the first class meeting. If cancellation is received after this date, you will be responsible for the balance due.

Drop-off & Pick-up Policy 

After registration, parents/guardians will receive additional information about parking, drop-off and pick-up procedures, including a map and driving directions, and a pick-up authorization form for students under 12.

Students 12 years and older are dismissed directly from their classroom at the end of each class.
