Enroll in our teen studio sessions throughout the year. In general, we follow the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) calendar.

Multi-child / Multi-session Discount
Enroll 2 kids, or 2  sessions during the year and save 10%

Your total tuition will be based on the actual number of days in the BUSD calendar on the day of your program. If you select the payment plan option, 10% of the tuition (based on selected sessions) is due at the time of enrollment, then the balance will be divided into equal monthly payments, regardless of the number of classes in that specific month. Payments are automatically debited on the first day of the month.
