Tuition and Registration

It should be clearly understood that although the tuition is paid monthly, it is not calculated by the weekly lesson. Your monthly tuition rate is the same each month even though some months will have 5 lessons and others as few as 3. Holiday closures have been calculated into the monthly tuition rate.

Academia offers open enrollment so you may register for classes at any time. If a student begins lessons in the middle of the month we will prorate for the number of lessons remaining before the beginning of the first full month. The first payment will be charged on the first day of lessons. All remaining payments will be charged on the 2nd day of the month thereafter.

There is a one-time registration fee of Rs 3000 for each student and Rs 2500 for each additional family member.

The tuition and registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Student Absence and Make-Up Lessons

Lessons canceled by the student for any reason cannot be made up, nor will a tuition refund/credit be given. However the studio, at it’s discretion, may offer a courtesy makeup based on the schedule of openings for the week. Many instructors may not have any openings as their schedules are completely full, so courtesy make-up lessons are not guaranteed and may not be offered if unavailable.

In order to be considered for a courtesy make-up lesson, a parent/student must call/email the studio at least 24-hours in advance if a known absence is coming, or ASAP in the case of an unforeseen illness, accident or emergency. If the parent/student does not call/email in advance, no courtesy make-up lesson will be offered.

Student Illness

No students should attend lessons when sick (i.e. fever, nausea, vomiting, etc). Academia reserves the right to dismiss a student from a scheduled lessons if the student arrives at that lesson exhibiting possible symptoms of illness. In this case, a makeup lesson will not be offered.

Withdrawal Policy

There is no long-term contract. To discontinue lessons and suspend automatic charges please notify the front desk in writing one full month prior to the first of the month. Notice given to the instructor only (verbally or otherwise) and non-attendance does not constitute withdrawal from lessons. For example, if you plan to discontinue/suspend lessons in May, then we will need to receive your written notice by the first lesson in April. If no notice is given by the first lesson of the month before lessons are being discontinued/suspended, the student/parent will be responsible for the next full month’s tuition.
