Add/Drop Class Policies
Please register for classes carefully. Our teachers are making a commitment to teach your children for a full school year, and you need to make the same commitment. Registration fees, tuition fees, and supply fees you pay are nonrefundable.
We have a 6-week drop period. If you do not drop a class before the drop period ends, you are obligated for the entire year’s tuition, even if you are paying out the yearly fee on a monthly basis. Each class’ tuition is a yearly tuition commitment that we allow parents to pay by the month. Dropping a class after the drop period has ended does not release the parent from paying for the rest of the year.
The 6-week drop period ends at the end of class day, 3:30 p.m., on the 6th class day of the year. Please refer to our academic calendar for this year's drop deadline.
Of course, a family sometimes encounters extreme difficulties during the year that might justify an exception. Please discuss these issues with the Star Academy Administrators as soon as possible.
To add or drop a class
- Download and print the add/drop form.
- Fill out the form and mail it to Joycelyn Simas, treasurer, along with items in #3.
- What to include in your envelope to Joycelyn:
- the completed form
- the $5 add/drop fee - a check to Star Academy
- a check to the teacher of the class you are adding to your student's schedule, with all the appropriate 1-time fees added (If you have a question about how much is owed, feel free to ask any board member.)
If you are adding or dropping 1 or more classes, only one form is needed. There is a $5 charge to add or drop classes. This is an admin fee, and it is $5 per form, not per class. This fee is to encourage families to think carefully before adding or dropping classes, and to do so only once, if at all. The add/drop fee goes to Star Academy and not to administration members personally. Funds for Star Academy are used for Star Academy classes and the running of the program.
As an example, if you are adding 2 classes and dropping 1 class, there is a place on the form to do all 3 classes, and there is only one $5 fee. However, if you add 2 classes today, you would fill out a form to add these 2 classes and pay $5. If in 3 weeks you decide to drop a class, another form will need to be filled out, and another $5 fee paid. Each form that is sent should come with a $5 check made out to Star Academy Class Day.
