You may register your child(ren) for either the Saturday or Sunday classes at this open registration session. Please note that assignment for class level and day preference (Saturday/Sunday) for all students will be on a first come, first served basis.
Typically, our classes for younger students (i.e. Preschool and Prep 1) fill up very quickly. We recommend arriving as early as possible to the open registration session.
In order for your registration to be considered “complete”, the full registration fee and payment information for tuition must be provided at the registration session.
New students must accompany their parents to the registration session for class placement assessment.
We do not accept online, over-the-phone, or in-advance registration. You must attend the registration session in-person in order to enroll your child(ren). If you are unable to attend the registration session, you may register on the first day of school, as long as there are still seats available.
