*New for Winter/Spring Semester, January 8th - June 23rd, 2018:

Monthly installment payment option.  Please note that pricing shown is for the monthly installment only.  The total semester duration is six months.

A single deposit of $25 per family is required to hold a space in one or more classes upon registration.  The deposit counts toward the class fees and will be deducted from the first month's payment.  The deposit can be submitted for reimbursement.

A $25 registration fee per family is collected for any late registrants following the conclusion of the open enrollment period, and is made in addition to a deposit.  The registration fee covers administrative planning time required to revise staffing to provide the best participant experience.  The registration fee does not count towards the price of the class itself.  Registration fees may not likely be approved for reimbursement.
