-Applications are accepted for any period listed in the table below on a first come, first served basis, up until the final due dates. I only check my post office box on Mondays after 11:00AM.

-Please provide additional information and/or documentation for your child’s health information if necessary. Please be as thorough as possible. If I need to contact you for further information it may delay approval of your application.

-If information has been withheld, you will be asked to provide it and your application will not be considered complete until it is received. Furthermore, if you have withheld information on your application that becomes apparent upon enrollment, it is grounds for immediate dismissal with no refunds given.

-See table below for information regarding how to send paper or electronic applications and payments.

-Applications are considered complete once both the entire form with signed waivers and payments have been received.

-I am receiving no outside funding at this time, so no discounts or scholarships are available. Families are welcome to use their charter school vouchers. If you know of a funding source, please feel free to put us in touch.

-Payments and deposits are your assurance that you intend for your child to participate in the program you applied for, and as such are nonrefundable. If your child is unable to participate in a session for which you have obligated yourselves, you may apply the payment toward another Outside School program that starts within one calendar year for that which you paid, provided space is available and you have notified me by the due date.

-Outside School is an approved vendor with Summit Academy and Valiant Prep. If you wish to use charter school funds toward tuition, you must provide the purchase order as an attachment to your application.
