Fall/Spring Schedule 2024-2025

Enrollment will open on Monday, May 13th, 2024. Classes begin on Monday, August 26th. We have 2 semesters of classes at 15 weeks each. Each semester is split into 4 payments for tuition. Enrollment for our school year classes closes October 31st. 

We believe skill level is more important than age for placement. A placement class will be scheduled in August. More details are still to come.
