When Can New Students Start? We are a year round program. New students may start at any time throughout the year. If you start in the middle of the session your tuition will be prorated to put you on the same schedule as the rest of the gym.
When is tuition due? Tuition is due monthly. Here at All Starz we run on an autopay system. We will run an automatic payment through your bank account or VISA/MC/AMEX. This will be done on the 5th day of every month. If you do not wish to have your tuition run automatically on any month you are welcome to come in & pay prior to the 5th with cash or check. You may also log on through our website through our parent portal & pay manually anytime. To do so go to www.allstarzacademy.com, scroll to the bottom of the homepage & click on parent login under the heading parent portal. If it is your first time logging in through our parent portal you will need to click “FORGOT PASSWORD” and then the system will email you the password to allow you first time access. Auto payment forms are available in our office & on our website. Using a credit/debit card through autopay or parent portal does NOT charge a $1.30 card fee. But if you pay in the office using a credit/debit card, there is a $1.30 credit card fee added to each transaction. You will be assessed a $10 charge on a declined automatic debit transaction. Replacement transactions must be in the form of cash, check, or money order. The fee for a returned check is $25. A student will not be allowed to participate in class if tuition is not paid in full on any month. If tuition is not paid by the 15th of the month the student will be dropped and will need to pay a $25 membership fee when he/she wants to re-enroll. There are no refunds on tuition or for missed classes.
Is there another payment option for those who do not wish to be set up on autopay? Yes - for those who wish to opt out of autopay you may choose to pay three months tuition in advance at a 5% discount.
How long am I enrolled for? No matter what payment plan you are on, your child will be enrolled until we receive your drop notice. We cannot issue credit to your account, pro-rate tuition, or refund payment for any classes not attended. Our classes are figured on a monthly basis from the 1st. Our monthly tuition is based on 4 classes per month, but on months that have 5 weeks you get a free week and are not charged. Email in or notify the office if you wish to drop a class or classes. This must be done prior to the 1st of the month in order to avoid your account being charged.
What if I start in the middle of the month? You can sign up at any time. Your tuition will be pro-rated according to the week you start. We ask that you pay your pro-rated tuition & annual membership fee at the time of sign up. Payment can be credit card, check, or cash and the following tuition will be on our automated billing system.
What is a registration fee? Annual membership is $25 per student and is due annually according to the startup month and is good as long as the student remains current on classes within the program. Members receive discounts to Open Gym and also to many special events. Members also receive priority enrollment opportunities.
Do you offer family discounts? Yes! Only one tuition in your family pays full price. The second child enrolled in a family receives $5 off tuition, and three or more children receive $10 off each class. How about multiple class discounts? Here is how our multiple class discounts work: First Child - $5 off for a 2nd class, $10 off for 3 or more classes Second child - $5 off 1st class, $10 off each additional class Three or More Children - $10 off each class
Can I try a class before I commit? A “no obligation class” is available to NEW students. These are offered where space is available in a class. A release form must be filled out prior to taking the class. The no obligation class will be charged only if the student chooses to sign up. We ask that you let us know within 24 hours after class if you will be signing up at All Starz Academy or not.
What if my child misses a class? It is always best to attend your regularly scheduled class whenever possible. If your child misses a class a make-up class can be arranged. Please come to the office and get a make-up slip for the class you missed. This is a courtesy we offer to our customers. Make-ups will be given only where space is available & must be taken within four weeks from the date of the missed class. Once your class is missed your make-up may be scheduled up to one week in advance. Your account will not be adjusted or pro-rated for any classes missed as we have hired instructors to teach the class your child signed up for whether or not they choose to attend.
What should my child wear to class? For gymnastics, girls should wear a leotard. Form fitting tank tops and workout shorts may also be worn as long as they are not too baggy & have an elastic waistband. Boys should wear a t shirt & workout shorts. Gymnastics students go barefoot & hair past the shoulders needs to be tied back in a ponytail, braid, or bun. No jewelry please except for small stud earrings. For dance classes, students need to wear dance wear or workout wear that allows for freedom of movement. You may only go barefoot during your first dance class. After that, the proper dance shoes according to dance style need to be worn for class. Are parents allowed to watch? Parents & visitors are welcome to observe classes, but must remain in the observation area at all times. Please do not distract the children by trying to coach/direct your child from the sidelines. Please do not enter the gym or dance room areas for any reason. If you need to speak with a coach please schedule a time at the office.
When is All Starz closed? All Starz is closed on all major holidays such as Labor Day, Memorial Day, & July 4th. Thanksgiving Closing will be from Nov. 27 through Nov. 29, 2014.
