Starz Program Policies
Please read our policies and complete the online enrollment form to reserve your child's spot in one of our classes!
ONE FREE CLASS
Each child is entitled to one free trial class. If you would like your child to try a class for free, inform your child's school and they will tell our staff. Please note: Our instructors track when a child receives a free class. Students are not officially enrolled until an online or paper enrollment form is received and $35.00 enrollment fee is collected.
***Please Note that our online registration system is designed for a 9 month enrollment period. If you are enrolling later in the year, please proceed with the enrollment process and our accounting team will pro-rate your first tuition draft to reflect the amount of classes left in the billing cycle. You can email at any time with questions.
A $35.00 enrollment fee is due with every enrollment form. This fee is incorporated into the deposit amount which is required online. If you are submitting a paper enrollment form please include a $35.00 check payable to Starz Program for this fee. This fee is non-refundable.
