Policies

Payment

 

Students may register for a class and purchase the first month on this website.  After that, tuition is set to automatic debit from checking, savings or credit card accounts, the 1st of each month.  A full school year is based on 34 weeks. For classes that run the duration of the school year, payments are broken up into 8 monthly payments for your convenience. You are not charged for Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, Spring Break or the remainder of June after Classes are out. Prices will be rectified the month following initial purchase from this website, to account for late enrollment.

If an auto-pay is declined on the 1st of the month we will automatically charge the auto-pay again before the 15th of the month. If payment is not received by the 15th of the month a late fee of $20 will be added to the account.

 

Class Withdrawal

Refunds are 75% of the cost of a month of classes to account for art materials ordered.  After a student has attended 2 weeks of class, no refunds are given for the remainder of the month. 

No refunds or credits are given for any remaining classes to be held within the month of your withdrawal. 

Please notify Kate’s Art School of a withdrawal from class via email or phone.

In the case of cancellation, if we are not contacted we will continue to bill you for saving the student's place in class.

 

Missed Classes

There are no makeup classes.  Attendance is important.

Kate’s Art School does not give refunds for missed classes.

 

Class Cancellations

Kate’s Art School has the right to cancel or change any classes at any time.

A minimum of 5 students is required for a class to run.  This includes our special programs such as one-day workshops, and summer camps.

 

Inclement Weather

Classes will be cancelled if Columbia School District cancels school or after school activities due to inclement weather.

No refunds will be given for classes cancelled due to conditions out of our control.
