Tuition, private lessons, payment procedure and other policies for 2020-2021 academic year
The Center expects to have two sessions during the 2020-2021 year (Fall and Winter/Spring), starting in September, 2020 and ending in May, 2021. The Fall semester 2020 is online only.
Payment for classes.
Tuition for most classes is $12 per lesson (RSL lessons and adult classes have special tuition). There is also a one time registration fee of $30 per student for entire school year 2020-2021.
Registration and Payment procedure
The registration takes place on line via our website: How to enroll Upon registration, the family will receive a confirmation email with invoice attached and lately an email with directions on how to pay. Enrollment is complete only after we receive your payment.
This year families will have to pay balances either by credit card or electronic bank transfer via Cheddar Up or by sending us a check. Please consider mailing time when you send us a check. We must receive your payment before September 7, 2020.
There is a $25 returned check charge for any checks returned to the Center for insufficient funds.
Missed or canceled classes
No refund is offered for missed lessons as Center costs do not decrease when a child misses school. Moreover, irregular attendance affects other families taking the same class because it has a negative affect on the education process.
If the Center has to cancel school during the year for any reason the make-up date will be offered.
If the Center cannot offer a make-up day, families will not be charged for lessons canceled by the Center. If the payment by the family has been made, a credit will be issued to the family on a subsequent invoice, which the family can choose to apply to the next semester, get a refund for, or donate the value of the credit to the Center as a charitable contribution.
We offer no tryout classes for Fall semester. If you did not like your first class, please, contact us, and you will receive a refund of your payment minus $12 for a class and minus registration fee of $30. Sorry, no refunds after that.
Photo and Video Recording
Unless notified in writing of an objection by a parent, legal guardian, or student of age 18+, photographs and video footage of students and/or names may be posted in Russian Center-produced materials including but not limited to printed publications, television productions, and web sites.
Private Lessons Policy
Every family situation is unique, and the Center is committed to accommodating a wide range of educational needs. When a student cannot attend regular lessons, the Center will offer small-group and even individual classes depending on teacher’s availability and on an agreement to cover Center expenses associated with these custom arrangements.
When arranging private lessons please consider that the regular Center’s classes which support interaction and communication with other kids can provide motivation and stimulation for your child necessary for successful learning.
The Russian Center is a Colorado non-profit. It is an organization run by parent volunteers and therefore there is no administrative expenses. Tuition is the primary source to cover teacher’s salaries, and other teaching-related expenses. Your prompt payment is very much appreciated.
This policy may be adjusted to better reflect changing Center realities. Feedback regarding this policy and related improvement ideas are welcome.
