logo2012Greetings!

It's that exciting time of summer, time to register online or at our Open House for classes for the 2015-16 Academic Term. We have wonderful things going on this season and we can't wait to see you join us. Classes begin Monday, August 17.   

Since many of our classes fill to capacity, we're offering our current students an early-registration option. Families can register online to hold their spot in class. There is no up-front fee for this service. Your reserved spot will be confirmed with your first tuition payment, which will be auto-charged on August 1. This is a terrific way to get into the class(es) of your choice without an early financial commitment.

And if you're wondering which class(es) are the best fit for your child(ren), don't fret. A personal class recommendation will be sent via email over the next few days to all of our current families. Look for it in your inbox and contact Alyssa with any questions you may have.
