General Information for Spring Semester

The first semester of online instruction has been a valuable learning experience and major adjustment for both students and teacher. Please review some adjustments and changes for spring, 2021.

Tuition Adjustment
Starting spring, 2021, the cost of art materials will be included in the price of tuition. During the fall 2020 semester, Miss M learned parents prefer that she order and direct-deliver supplies to homes. Beginning spring, 2021, Miss M will provide direct delivery service, seeing that each student receives supplies for the semester. Tuition will be one flat rate of $225 for all registrations except for first-time students who will be assessed a one-time tuition of $310 to cover additional foundation start up materials.

Prerequisites for participating in Online Instruction:
1. Art Challenge students must be in at least grade seven or above and read at a seventh-grade level.
2. Students must have access to a computer and printer.
3. Students must have a Gmail address separate from parents for the delivery of instructional packets and chatting on Hangouts.
