Billing Info

Our recreational programs run on a “Monthly” billing cycle and will run from August 10, 2020 through June 5, 2021. You will have the option to register for classes during the summer schedule or you may break for the summer, but your placement/class of your choice will not be guaranteed for fall.

Please make note of the following scheduled closures for our recreational program:
November 25 - 28, 2020 (Thanksgiving Break)
December 21, 2020- Jan 2, 2021 (Winter Break)
May 31, 2021 (Memorial Day)
TBD (Showcase)

Since closures are built into our 2020-2021 School Year schedule, we will not provide make up classes for these weeks and full tuition will be due for each month (Sept-May), averaging 4 classes per month.  We will prorate August tuition due to the mid-month beginning of our session.

Please keep in mind this billing method takes into consideration the months that have an extra week. Those extra weeks have replaced the holiday weeks we are closed so that billing is kept consistent. We offer this as a convenience to our families in place of paying for the full season up front.
