ACADEMY GENERAL 2021
A: We understand that sickness, appointments and other matters can come up! Attendance matters not only because it allows your young artist to fully experience the class, but it teaches them accountability and their value! Many of our classes involve group/team work, so others will depend on them to attend for overall success. Please notify Trike with any expected days you might miss, so that we can plan accordingly. Students should try not to miss more than one class.
A: We generally ask that our littles be at least four years old at the time class begins. What we are really looking for is, are they currently in Pre-K4 and if not, are they familiar with a classroom environment and can they use the bathroom without assistance.
A: Yes! So that our young artists can be fully immersed in the experience with out teaching artists, we ask that you drop off and pick up your young artists each day. However, if you would like to observe your child, you are welcome to stay and do so. Please let our teaching artists know and we will gladly accommodate. Our team works hard to make sure out young artists are in a safe, fun and comfortable environment each day.
A: Applications for our Scholarships are available on our Register for Camps & Classes page under Academy. We award 20%, 50%, and 80% scholarships each semester based on need.
