Monthly tuition is calculated for the whole term (mid August '2020 - mid June '2021) including breaks & holidays and then split into equal payments over 10 months, one due each month. So tuition is the same no matter how many weeks of classes there are in the month. Calculations for tuition reflects one snow day and one photo day.

Tuition already reflects one snow day, so if there is a snow day there are no refunds or makeup lessons scheduled.
If there is more than one snow day for your class, makeup lessons will be scheduled or you can do a makeup lesson in any other class on the schedule. In some cases we will do online/ zoom class. Refunds and credits are not given for any snow day, even if you can not make it to another class as a makeup lesson.
