General Policies and Regulations

Student must stay away from behavior that interferes with other students' learning or hurts others physically or emotionally during the entire period he/she is on the camp premises. Violation of these rules may result in disciplinary action which upon repetition may ultimately result in the student's dismissal from the program.

Drop off and pick up are parent responsibilities. Absolute Academy staff supervise students only during scheduled class, camp or event times and, if applicable, during any previously announced early drop off or late pick up periods. Before and after announced times, we do not accept any responsibility regarding the supervision of the students.

 

Use of electronic devices during classes is strictly prohibited unless the student is given explicit permission or direction by the instructor. Inappropriate use of an electronic device may result in confiscation of the device until the end of the camp day or session.

Absolute Academy reserves the right to change the teacher and/or schedule of any camp offering at any time without any reservation. You have the right to cancel your student's registration, if the new schedule does not work for you.

Absolute Academy reserves the right to cancel classes, camp offerings, or events due to insufficient enrollment. Such decisions are made on a case-by-case basis. In case a class, a camp offering or an event a student has enrolled in is cancelled, parents will be notified and any payments made to Absolute Academy will be fully refunded.


Registrations, Cancellations, Changes and Refund Policy

Absences

Cancellations

Please note that all cancellations are final, i.e., if you decide to register again after cancellation, new registration is subject to class availability and the applicable rate at the time.

 

International Participants

As an exception to the above terms, international participants receive full refund if they cannot obtain a US visa by the regular registration deadline. It is the participant’s responsibility to contact us in writing before the regular registration deadline. Otherwise, the cancellation is still refund eligible, but a 10% cancellation fee is applicable. We reserve the right to request a denial letter from the US Embassy or any other document as a proof that cancellation is due to visa issues.

 

Changing between Camp Offerings

After registration, you can request your student's camp option to be switched to a different one prior to the registration deadline. Such requests are subject to seat availability and there are no administrative fees, but price differences apply. If the new option is more expensive, then you will be billed for the difference; if the new option is lower, then you will get a refund.

Wait-list Policy

For classes that reach the full capacity, there will be a wait-list that operates as a pool. When a seat opens up in a class, registrations for this class will be enabled again on the website and all students/parents in the wait-list for that class will be notified via email.
