HOW TO REGISTER (Fall Session 2): 

Fall Session 2: Oct. 31st – Dec. 16th (6 weeks)

  1.  Registration OPENS Thursday, September 29th @ 9:00 AM. Registration CLOSES Sunday, October 2nd @ 9:00 PM

  2.  When registration opens, you will register on our Sign-Up Form where you will indicate your first, second, and third choices.

  3.  After registration closes, we will place participants and send an email to complete your registration on Monday, October 3rd by 5PM. Note: Often, participants get into their first or second choice, but there is no guarantee, and you might be placed onto a waitlist.

  • There may be a second round announced if there are spots remaining available.
  • If placed on a waitlist, we will contact you if a spot becomes available.
  • Please note last minute changes and cancellations take a lot of staff time. Also if your child will miss more than two classes due to travel, please reconsider taking a spot. Thank you for your understanding.

Why do we conduct our registration this way?

In the past, we have offered registration at a certain time which resulted in a competitive race to get in first and our programs would sell out in a matter of minutes. This felt inequitable for working families, those registering for the first time, etc. We aim to be as inclusive and equitable as we can be and this is an ever evolving learning process. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have suggestions or feedback on how we can make this process even more accessible for everyone. Thank you!
