Until 2019 Summer Lessons Begin!

*Please note that we are running a new website and registration system for Summer 2019. It is an exciting new platform but we are experiencing some growing pains in implementing the new system. We ask for your patience while we work out the kinks.

Update (3/19/2019): We'll be revamping registrations to simplify sign up for families who haven't registered yet, it should be ready to launch next week. This will not change the registration status of families currently enrolled. Families are still welcome to register under the current system until the new one is ready. Simply sign up for your intended class and we'll make sure you're ready to go for summer!
