Refund and School Policy

School Refund Policy

Full refunds will be issued up until the class begins.  Once the class begins there is NO REFUND issued.   Absolutely no credit or refunds for no-shows. We are very strict about our policy because we value the time of our teachers and you are taking a potential seat of another student.

If you have an emergency, please email us documentation at
