School Year Program
The Fall/Spring program is offered on a semester basis, and coordinated with the local public school calendar. Schedules are set up so that students are free to enjoy the majority of school holidays.
The Fall and Spring semesters consist of 15 scheduled lessons plus a student makeup/bonus day each. They run from mid-September to mid-January, and late January to mid-May. Tuition is $306 for half-hour lessons. Tuition fees are pro-rated for new students who start lessons after the semester has begun.
The Summer Program is scheduled with the schedule of the individual student in mind. Tuition is $198.00 for an 11-week session, but vacation time is deducted.
Due to the flexibility of the program, there is no makeup/bonus day scheduled. Not all days/locations are guaranteed during the summer.
Summer students are welcome to enter the School Year Program, but the same time slot cannot be guaranteed. School Year students have seniority in the previous semester's time slots.
