If you haven’t confirmed your lesson length and the number of lessons for the current term, please consult your teacher before completing this form.
Policies and Procedures
This form constitutes our sole record of your enrollment. A completed registration and payment authorization for each term per student is required to process your enrollment. Should you require additional lessons later in the semester, you will need to complete this form again.
You will receive an email confirmation with all of the information you have provided. Please make a copy for your records.
Open enrollment allows students to begin lessons at any time during the year; however, we invoice students and compensate teachers by semester, including Fall (September 1—December 31), Spring (January 1—May 31), and Summer (June 1—August 31). You and your teacher will determine the appropriate number of lessons for each semester based on your combined availability.
Tuition & Fees
Our annual registration fee of $50 per family is applied each fall (or $25 when first registration occurs in the spring). Tuition is non-refundable, except in extraordinary cases of medical emergency or relocation away from the city. Account credit must be used within one calendar year of the date the services were purchased.
Attendance, Cancellations and Make-up Lessons
Lessons are purchased on a semester basis and must be completed by semester’s end. Students are allowed two cancellations per semester with a 24 hour notice in order to be eligible for make-up lessons. More than two cancellations will not be made up or refunded.
Make-up lessons are offered based on the teacher’s availability. Please note that the teacher’s availability is limited and it is the student’s responsibility to arrange a time within those limits. Exceptions to this policy will be made in the case of serious illness or emergency, at the discretion of the Director.
Lessons cancelled by the teacher or cancelled due to inclement weather or building closure will be made up at a time that is mutually convenient for the student and teacher.
If you experience difficulties with your lessons, please notify the office immediately. Bridges Academy reserves the right to suspend lessons for students who are in arrears with their tuition or and dismiss a any student due to lack of interest or progress, frequent absences and/or tardiness, behavioral problems, or other failure to abide by policy.
PLEASE NOTE UPDATED PAYMENT POLICIES
All accounts are required to maintain a valid payment authorization on file. You may opt to pay in full or in equal monthly installments over the course of the semester using a bank account or a credit/debit card. Payments are processed on the 15th of the month (or the next business day for weekends and holidays).
ACH bank drafts
ACH payment is our preferred method, as we are charged no additional fees. An ACH bank draft is similar to paying by check — the information you provide is on your check. Your authorization allows St. Luke’s to draft the amount due and is processed securely by our finance department.
Please note that if you already have an ACH bank draft authorization on file with us, we will use this method of payment unless you provide an alternate.
Credit and debit card payments come with additional fees. If you prefer this method of payment, we are happy to accommodate and will add a convenience fee of 2.6% to your balance due.
Please check your payment option below. Please note that if you choose credit/debit card, you will receive an updated invoice including the additional convenience fee.
On the following page, you will be asked to download our payment form. Please print, complete, and return to our office on or before your first lesson — a drop box is conveniently located on the second floor next to Elevator B.
