Policies

Make Up Policy

Missed classes are the responsibility of the student, however, as a courtesy, we offer "same-week" make up classes, where available. Depending on the term, we may have an additional class at the end of the session, but this is not guaranteed. Please fill out a Make Up Request form located on the home page of the website. Once recevied, we will confirm your request.

  • If you know your child will be missing class, you may attend any alternative class that same week.
  • If you miss a class and cannot attend in that same week, we may provide make up classes at the end of the term.
  • We do not offer credits for missed classes unless we cancel the class.
  • No carry-forward class credits beyond current term.
  • You may request that your make up is in another class, so as to try out that class. For pottery, we do not save pieces in this case.
  • We do not offer make ups during Summer Camp, Spring Break Camp or any School's Out Workshops/Events.

Withdrawal Policy

If you decide to withdraw from classes for any reason, our policy is as follows:

  • After registration and once the term has started there are no refunds. If you wish to withdraw, you are responsible, at a minimum, for any fees plus four (4) weeks of classes plus any materials fees.
  • There are no refunds/credits for Full Year or Practicum enrollments after the start of the Fall session.
  • Upon withdrawal and refund, you forfeit attendance to any classes.
  • There are no refunds/credits for any withdrawals after the 2nd week of classes.
  • We do not offer any credits towards our Summer Camp Program or any other workshop.

Camp Policy

  • There are no refunds after March 4th, 2017 for withdrawals of any reason.
  • You may transfer your registration to another student. Please contact us regarding our procedure for any transfers.
  • Switching of camps are allowed free of charge prior to 5/1/2017. Any change request must be made by email.

Please review the age requirements and contact us if there are any questions. Renaissance is not responsible nor will refund or credit if the requirements are not followed as stated on the web site.
  • Students who exhibit poor and dangerous behavoir may be sent home at the discetion of camp directors. In the event we choose to do so, there are no refunds or credits for any missed days of camp. Please talk to campers about the proper interaction with others, including instructors.
  • Cell phones, if deemed a distraction to camp, may be placed in our office until the end of camps. Students are to inform office/counselors of any issues, and should not be texting/calling parents. Please review this with your children.

Practicum Series

The Practicum Series registration is a commitment that all students and families must be prepared for. Due to the materials and curriculum, we put much effort into preparation and planning for the year. Therefore, please be advised of the following:

  • There are no refunds for withdawals after the start of classes, for any reason.

Pro-Rated Classes

After the first week of classes, your tuition will be pro-rated. The amount of discount will be determined by the week you start, and our system will automatically calucates the amount. Please note that pro-rated tuitions begin Sunday of the week you are registering for class. No further discounts are allotted and make ups are not allowed for the classes you missed, prior to your registration. (See make up policy for classes you paid for). We do not pro-rate camps or workshops, only classes. 

Free Trial Class

We allow 1 free trial for a student so that they can experience a class at Renaissance Art Center. Parents must fill out a form online to participate, and we ask that you do not just walk in without notifiying us first. Students must be prepared and be able to participate without distrupting the class and it is important to be on time. Pottery students doing a free trial will not complete or finish a piece in the alloted time, but will be able to experience what the class is like.

Care Services

For Camps, we provide care services for busy parents . These are separate payments and you only pay for what you need. Register online the week you attend camp/workshop. The costs are as follows: Before Care begins at 8:15 am and is $10 per day per student. After Care is 4:30 until 6 pm and costs $20 per day per student. Students picked up after 6 pm will be charged an additional $25 per 15 minutes. Any student signed in at the start of Before or After will be billed accordingly, regardless of the time you arrive. Spring Break and Schools Out Workshops offer After Care Only and times can vary as the services. When signing up, only register for what you need as there are no credits/refunds for unused portions of our care services.

Materials Fee

All classes and camps include a materials fee which is paid separate of your tuition. The fee will vary depending on the class/camp and the materials used. Some may include a license fee which will inlcude an inhome use of a web based program. Fees are listed on the Policies tab with Tuitions.

Class Structure

To maintain an integrity to our programs, we have strict guidelines as to the age groups of our classes. With years of experience behind us, we have found that age groups work best in the classroom environment. Therefore we need parents to understand that we cannot leapfrog students too early in the next level. While there may be an expection, this is done at our discrection and generally only when a student is very close in age. We have a 3 year curriculum track in all levels so this ensures that students will never repeat projects from semester to sememster, or year to year. Please contact us with any questions regarding the proper level for your child.

Registration Issues

We are not responsible for any registrations issues if not notified within 24 hours. Please check your order summary carefully and contact us immediaetly by email. If not notified within the time allocated, you are therefore responsible for your registration and any changes may incur fees, depending on the type of registration.

  • There are no refunds after March 4th, 2017 for withdrawals of any reason. We do not offer credit toward Summer or any classes.
  • You may transfer your registration to another student. Please contact us regarding our procedure for any transfers.
