IMPORTANT TUITION INFORMATION >> Please Read Carefully: Tuition is based on the year. No matter how many classes occur in one month, tuition will remain the same. Also, no matter how many classes you miss in one month, tuition remains the same! This includes vacations. Class space will be given to paying students, no exceptions. If your family leaves on vacation, your spot in class will be given to a paying student, unless you continue to pay for your space while you are gone. Do not expect teachers to hold space for you without payment. Make-up classes are always available and can be arranged through your instructor.
