At this time, we do not offer abbreviated schedules (i.e. Tues/Thurs only or M,W,F).  You may enroll your camper for the full week of camp and pull them out as necessary, however, we will ask that you  still pay the full tuition for the week. 
TO CONFIRM YOUR CAMPER'S SPOT, the school must receive your registration forms and your non-refunable camp deposit (credited towards your tuition) - $50 per camper due by April 28, 2017

"I feel free to call upon the faculty at our school anytime - weekday or weekend, to voice a concern, seek advice, raise a classroom issue or share an anecdotal story of accomplishment. It’s like having a competent group of allies to assist in the daily challenge that raising children with character poses."
