Withdrawal and Refund Policy

  • To remove a child from a class, the parent or guardian should request the change in writing by email to Jeff Turner at jturner@summitmail.org.
  • If no such request is made, parents are responsible for the total fee whether a child attends class or not.
  • Refunds 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 second class.
  • Payments are not transferable to siblings, other children, or other accounts.
  • Refunds, discounts, or make-ups are not given for participant absences.


  • All classes have enrollment limits. This provides an optimal teacher-student ratio.
  • Our online registration system will designate full classes with a grey “Waitlist” button. Click the button to register for the waitlist.
  • 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, add a class to the schedule, or refund a portion of the class fee.
  • 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.
