Broadway Kids Academy and its parent company of Hollywood Kids Academy, LLC are privately owned and maintain the right to refuse service to anyone.
METHOD OF PAYMENT: BKA has an easy, online payment system. You create a Log In Account entering the parents information and then add each child individually into your account. (Note: You can change your personal information anytime by logging into your account and editing it.) Then register your child for the classes you would like them to be enrolled in. You will then proceed to check out and enter your Debit, MasterCard or Visa card. Your card will be billed once a month on the same day of the month you registered for the classes. For accounting purposes, we do not accept checks, cash or money orders.
CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS: All BKA students are under contract and therefore they are required to participate until the end of the semester. They may withdraw up to four months before a show, but after that they will be required to pay for the entire amount of their tuition. Because the students are all part of a cast and have been working on a show together, if a student withdraws this has a negative effect upon the cast and directors as well sends the wrong message to the students. It is very important that students learn to be professional and to be dependable and to honor their commitments.
CREDITS: All tuition is pro-rated for six months. Tuition payments will continue until Ms. Barbara receives an email to cancel. We do give credits on your account. No refunds.
WITHDRAWAL: All cancellations must be received by email. Please send to Ms. Barbara at firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon withdrawal, payments will discontinue beginning the following month. Partial monthly attendance will not be pro-rated. Additionally, students who withdraw early will forfeit their positions in our classes and may be placed on a waiting list upon their return depending upon class availability. All students who withdraw early will not receive a refund.
DEFAULTING OF PAYMENTS: All students accounts must be current. If for any reason payments must be delayed then Ms. Barbara must be contacted before the payment is to be made. This will allow each student to continue on without any interruptions in their studies. Students whose accounts are not current will not be able to continue their participation in BKA. Purposeful delinquency of payments can result in the permanent termination of a student’s participation in BKA.
LATE PICKUP FEE: Children can feel insecure and abandoned if parents are habitually tardy in picking them up. Additionally, teachers personal time is affected. To avoid this all students must be picked up on time from their classes. A late fee can and will be assessed after the first 10 minutes except in emergencies. If a student is not picked up within the first 10 minutes then the parent/guardian will be charged a $15.00 late fee. Each minute after that the parent/guardian will be charged up to $2.00 per minute. Habitual tardiness (3 or more) may result in the removal of your students from our programs. Your cooperation in the safety and security of your children is greatly appreciated.
COMMUNICATION WITH TEACHERS
Communication is vital to your childs success at BKA. You will be receiving class updates and other important information via email from our Site Secretary/Managers frequently through various methods. Our staff will communicate with you via phone call, text and email. If you need to contact your teacher please email the Site Secretary/Manager.
Roll: All BKA classes take roll to insure that students are able to participate.
Punctuality: Students should be on time to class. We understand that there are occasional delays, but if they are consistently late then the classwork is disrupted because every student is an important part of their class team. Class/rehearsal times are limited and everyone’s attendance is essential for your child’s development and the success of their performance.
Class Drop Off: Students can be dropped off by parents as long as parents watch them come in. Parents must pick up kids on time and in person unless otherwise arranged with BKA Manager/Secretary.
Class Attire: Students must come dressed properly for class with hair pulled of face. Please see our website "Class Attire & Costumes" Section for details.
Missed Class: If your child must miss class for any reason, please email the site secretary/manager in advance.
Makeup Days: We do not offer makeup days for missed classes, however you may schedule a private lesson with your child's teacher at your own expense to bring your child up to speed with their class.
