Class Policies

The Bay School Community Arts Center offers over 100 classes in a variety of media for adults and children. The following information provides guidance for those enrolling in our classes.

Registration Policy

If you are interested in a class, it is important you register early.  In most cases, we determine whether a class will be held based on the minimum enrollment required 7 to 10 days in advance of the scheduled class start date. Also, many of our repeating classes are popular and fill up quickly.

You can register online, over the phone, or stop by in person.  Payment is due at the time of registration.

To register online, you will be required to set up an account and provide contact information, including a phone number and email address so we can keep you updated on the class status.  If you are registering your child, please complete the child registration form and provide emergency contact information.

Acceptance Policy

All are welcome at The Bay School regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, national or ethnic origins. We do our best to ensure that people of all ages and abilities are able to participate. If you or your child has any special needs for accommodation, we encourage you to contact us. We will be happy to provide reasonable accommodations.

Refund Policy

If you withdraw your enrollment more than 10 days prior to the class start date, you will be refunded or credited the class fee.  Materials fees paid to the instructor will not be refunded unless you have referred a replacement student.  NO refunds will be made for withdrawals made 10 days or less prior to the class start date.

We understand that last-minute emergencies, illnesses, or conflicts come up that are out of one's control; however, due to committed expenses on the part of The Bay School, we cannot make exceptions to this policy.

If The Bay School or instructor cancels the class, a full refund or account credit to another class will be issued.

Course Cancellation

If we must cancel a class for any reason, all participants will be notified and given a full refund or the opportunity to apply their account credit to a future class.
