If you do not know at what level to register your student, take your best guess. If your child needs to be at another level, we can reassign him or her after the first class.

Following medical advisories about the Delta variant, we will not offer in-person classes during the fall semester. 
We will make a decision in December about opening in-person classes in the spring.
