SUMMER still seems like it’s far away. But I know many of you are already making plans for when school gets out, and I hope you have tons of cool adventures! Since Forte Academy of the Arts is open year-round, it’s a good idea to start thinking about summer now. That way, it doesn’t take you by surprise later!
Q. “How do lessons work in the summer?” A. The Academy is open year-round, and we do not close in the summer.
Q. “Do a lot of students quit in the summer?” A. We actually grow in enrollment during the summer months! A few students withdraw, but 90% take lessons year round and we get a huge influx of new students in June who continue into the fall.
Q. “How full is the Academy?” A. As of today, we are getting very full between the hours of 3:30 and 7:30 pm. These are prime-time spots! We also teach many lessons in during lunchtime hours and on Saturdays.
Q. “If we withdraw for the summer, can we keep our spot for fall?” A. Lessons are first come, first serve; so if you withdraw for the summer, we cannot guarantee that we will have a spot for you in the fall, as we will open the spot to new students.
The big question for all parents and students to consider is:
Do you want the same teacher and same time slot, in the fall? If the answer is YES, there are two ways to do this:
1.Stay enrolled through the summer and take advantage of our summer make-up lessons. We realize that some of you will go on vacation for a portion of the summer. By signing up for summer make-ups, you can make up all of your missed lessons and keep the same spot for fall. It’s very easy to do: Sign up for the desired classes on the make-up class registration sheet found at the Academy. If you don’t know the dates you'll be gone yet or what make-ups you want to come to, you can sign up anytime during the summer. GET A HEAD START! You can make up summer lessons in advance starting May 1.
2. Sub lease your spot to a family member or friend
You can keep your same teacher and time slot by staying enrolled and sending a family member or friend in your place for the dates you will miss. Just let the office know who is coming in your place and when. Make sure that your friend reimburses you directly for the lessons.
If you are taking summer lessons and need a specific time for fall, please contact me ASAP and we will do our best to accommodate you. The time slot that you are currently taking is reserved for you; the best way to guarantee it in the fall is by using it for your lessons now!
If you LOVE your teacher keep your spot by using the summer make ups or sub lease your spot. Are you going to have some extra time in the summer? Reserve your spot for a SUMMER CAMP today. Check out our Summer Camps page online now at http://www.fortesandiego.com/Camps.html Space is limited. Any questions? Please call our office at 760-622-6336.
