Registration Procedure

This year, our registration procedure has changed to make it easier for you to sign up for enrichment classes for your children. You will now be able to pay directly through the site, no more being taken to a separate page to and wait for a confirmation. Even better, classes will automatically close when they have reached the maximum number of students. This means that you will immediately know that your child has been registered and have confidence that they will be able to participate in their chosen program.

 

However, each child will need to be registered separately, which means that you will have to fill out multiple forms and pay individually per child. If you wish to enroll multiple children in the same class and are worried that they won’t be able to get into the class before it closes, we encourage you to either have multiple tabs open on your browser or to have another adult register a different child simultaneously. Thank you so much for your participation in the enrichment program and happy registering!

 

Check out our new and exciting offerings as well as some of our favorites back by popular demand!
