Priority Pre-Registration for Fall
Current students will have the opportunity in May to reserve their preferred day, time and teacher for the fall.
After the pre-registration period, spots will be opened to the general public, so we recommend pre-registering before teacher schedules fill up.
Pre-registration for students who would like to keep their current day and time.
Week 2: May 20th-25th
Pre-registration for students who would like to change their day and time.
If you'd like to pay the school year in full, we'll waive the $45 Activities Fee AND give you a 5% discount on tuition!
How to Pre-Register:
1. Fill out an electronic form in advance.
This will be sent via email next week and will help us gather information to expedite the process.

When you come for your lesson that week, we will have your paperwork prepared for you to simply review & sign.
3. Pay the non-refundable Activities Fee* for the 2013-2014 school year.
We will charge this $45 annual fee to your account to finalize your registration and reserve your time slot.
