Payment Policy

A non-refundable registration fee is due to register and secure a spot for your child for the semester/school year.

If the registration fees are not paid, the student is not enrolled and cannot attend lessons. These fees cover administrative and supply expenses that are not covered by tuition alone.

A late fee of $10 will be added to all accounts not paid on time. Tuition is due on the first of the month. Payments received after the 10th of the month are considered late.

Attendance

  • All students and instructors are expected to honor their lesson and class times.
  • We have included on our group and private lesson calendars the dates that we expect will need a makeup lesson due to the Shelby County school system calendar.
  • Most school day closings are on Mondays, so we plan to have a day of the week (to be determined) set aside for makeups due to Shelby County calendar closings.
  • If a teacher must miss for illness or emergency, makeups will be scheduled within a timely manner.
  • There will be no regular scheduled lessons during the weeks of Thanksgiving and Spring Break.

If you are unable to attend your lesson, please notify your instructor as soon as possible. You may also contact Jamie Harper at arts@northshelbybaptist.org or at 205-259-2640.
