Guild Policies and Procedures

Registration Fees
Each Visual Arts, Gymnastics, Dance and Music family is charged a registration fee of $30 per family per year. This fee helps to cover administrative costs, overhead, and to offset the cost of the online registration system throughout the year. This fee also holds your student's spot in their class. Registration fees are billed once yearly per family and covers all members of the household in any Guild classes with which they participate.

Withdrawal Policy
Registering for a class and/or lesson is a commitment to attend as scheduled. Visual Art classes are billed in session so the Guild must be notified before the next session begins. Students withdrawing from a session after the session has started are responsible for those sessions fees.
