Instructors and Substitutes

For all Arts & Learning programs (ASAP Music/Theater, conservatory, HAP, camps, etc.) Arts & Learning will provide a professional instructor. If for any reason an instructor is absent, a qualified substitute will be provided.

Student Drop-off and Pick-up Procedure

For all of our on-site programs, classes, and camps, a parent/caregiver over 18 signs your child in and out each day.  Parents are not allowed to wait in their car and have their child come to them.  They must sign the child in before class and out after class. If your student is attending more than one class or camp following the first, they must be signed in for both classes when they arrive and signed out for both when they are picked up.

Students 16yrs and older may sign in & out with approval from parent/guardian.

Policies

Cancellation Policy: All student registration, course and installment fees are non-refundable except when a course is canceled by the Arts & Learning Conservatory or a student provides staff with a Notice of Withdrawal prior to the first class session. Exceptions for exigent circumstances are granted by the CEO on a case by case basis and may be applied on a pro-rata basis.

  • Musical Theater: While we realize that unforeseen circumstances occur, it is difficult to recast a role after casting decisions have gone out. As a result, you are responsible for paying the entire tuition cost, regardless of whether you choose to attend rehearsals and/or participate in the production. No refunds will be given.

 

Attendance: It is important that students are here every day of class and arrive on time. If a child needs to miss a class or will be late, please call 714.728.7100, email the teacher, or email info@artsandlearning.org in advance with as much notice as possible. Students on scholarship must attend every class in order to stay eligible for the scholarship.

Placement: Class placement is primarily decided upon by grade/age. The teaching artist does reserve the right to place students in another class due to ability and/or needs.

Class Size:  We limit class size to provide quality instruction.

  • Camps/Classes for younger ages (5-8 yrs) typically range from 8 up to 16
    students.
  • Camps/Classes for older ages (9-12; 13-18) typically range from 10 up to 30 students.
  • Theater Production size will range based on need of show.

 

Wait lists: Please complete the registration form and contact the office to be placed on a waitlist. Online registration will not permit “overbooking” . For wait listing on classes or camps, you will not be charged tuition. If space becomes available, we will contact you and you will have 24 hours to enroll.

Transfer: If a class isn’t the right fit and another class is available, you may choose to transfer to a different class.

Late Registration: You may register for classes past the start of class up to the 3rd session. However, prorated prices are not available for students who choose to enroll after the class has begun.

What to Bring: For partial day summer camps, students will need to pack a snack each day of camp. For full day camps, students need to bring a lunch each day. Please pack items that do not require refrigeration or microwaving. We also encourage students to bring a water bottle with his or her name on it. For classes, students do not need snacks due to the shorter duration of the class.

For theater, scripts will be distributed. Students will be expected to return each day with scripts.

Music classes and camps, students will be expected to arrive with instrument, folder, pencils and music.

What to Wear: Students are very active in our classes. No flip-flops or slip-on shoes should be worn. Comfortable clothes that permit movement are helpful. If classes demand other specific attire (such as makeup or tech class), students will be notified.

ALC reserves the right to adjust programming or cancel sessions based on the number of registrations. In this event, ALC will attempt to transfer the student into another class. If the schedule doesn’t permit that, a full refund will be given.
