Applications are processed on a first come, first served basis according to postmark date. 

Two checks are required with the application:
1) A registration fee of $135
2) One month’s tuition for the class of your first preference, which serves as a deposit (see "Class Schedules and Fees" tab for reference). If your child is placed on a waiting list, the tuition check will be shredded.

March 22nd: If your child has been placed, this is the deadline to decline enrollment   

*Please note: After March 22nd the tuition fee becomes non-refundable. If your child receives a spot and you would like to accept, you do not need to do anything else.
