Fees for students enrolled in Afterschool
Students enrolled and attending the Summit Afterschool Program during class time are charged a lower fee. Prices will be visible on the Active.com site beginning January 5. This does not apply to Afterschool drop-in attendance.

Share questions or ideas about this or any other extracurricular program with Jeff Turner, Director of Co-Curricular Programs. jturner@summitmail.org

* When attending classes, please do not park in the Athletic Center Driveway. This includes parking near the gate when it is closed. Park in Summit lots or the small lot behind the church. Thank you.

Individual Music Lessons

Individual music lessons are available at Summit at the end of each school day. Instruction is offered in a wide variety of instruments. Lessons will be tailored to suit each child's special interests and needs. Our friendly, qualified teachers provide 30-minute weekly lessons that allow children to explore their inner musician.

Fees are billed to parents' Summit account. Students from other schools are welcome, too. Lessons are $30 for a 30-minute lesson. Contact Jeff Turner, Director of Co-Curricular Programs, to inquire about lessons. Lessons are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.

    • All classes have enrollment limits and many fill quickly.
    • Choosing a wailtist spot does not require any payment or the obligation to enroll if spots open. (See below.)
    • Late registration continues after the deadline for classes that are not full.
    • All offerings are contingent upon adequate enrollment. Should a class be canceled, Summit will extend a full refund or credit toward another class.
    • To arrange childcare for classes that begin after a Summit child’s regular dismissal, please contact the Director of Summit Afterschool Janice Weiss at jweiss@summitmail.org to learn about Summit Afterschool options. Keep in mind that all Afterschool programs charge a fee and are subject to availability.

    Payment
    • Registration is completed through our Active.com site and requires a debit or credit card.
    • A 50% deposit is required at the time of registration.
    • The remaining 50% will be automatically charged to the credit card on file on March 26 (for spring 2018 classes).
    • Each class carries a non-refundable registration fee of 10% of the total class fee.
    • AF AC charges are separate from regular Summit School accounts. Contact the Co-Curricular Program Office at 336 722-2777 if you have any payment questions or need paperwork for taxes.

    Withdrawal and Refund Policy
    • To remove a child from a class, the parent or guardian should request the change in writing by email, fax, or letter. Please send to Jeff Turner at jturner@summitmail.org, FAX 336-724-0099 or 2100 Reynolda Road, Winston-Salem NC 27106.
    • If no such request is made, parents are responsible for the total fee whether a child attends class or not.
    • Refunds requested before the fourth class session are prorated based on number of classes and administrative costs. Summit retains 10% of total cost per class as a non-refundable registration fee. There are no refunds after the fourth class.
    • Fees are not transferable to siblings, other children or other accounts.
    • Refunds, discounts or make-ups are not given for participant absences.

    Waitlists

    • There is no payment required for waitlists. There is no obligation to accept a spot if it opens.
    • If a spot opens, the first person on the list will be given the opportunity to register. Contact will be made by phone or email. Those remaining on the list will be called if there is room.

    Make-up Classes
    • Summit reschedules classes from time to time due to teacher illness or other circumstances. Communication about canceled classes occurs by email using the email addresses provided during registration. For late cancellations, phone numbers may be used for a group text.
    • We make every effort to make up missed classes caused by Summit or the instructor. In such cases Summit may add time to a class or add a class to the schedule (usually on the same day of the week).
    • If a class is canceled due to inclement weather, make up classes are not guaranteed and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
    • Make-ups are not given if a participant misses a class.
