There is a non-refundable $35 annual registration fee per child per school year, payable at the time of the registration.
We offer options to register with a payment plan of 2 payments (recommended if your child is enrolled into 1 class) or 4 payments (recommended for those with 2 or more classes and/or multiple children enrolled into our program). If your child cannot attend what would for the Spring part of the session (April 23 - June 18th), please email us separately.
Alternative payment plan can be created upon request.
* If you are unable to make a payment, please contact us to see if a private arrangement can be made.
Forms of Payment
We accept all major credit cards, Venmo, Zelle, PayPal and checks/cash (on site, in-person classes only). Please make checks payable to AlphaMinds Academy and indicate your child's name on the check.
There will be no "excused classes", and payments for missed classes will not be returned. Special cases (relocation, long-lasting illness, etc.) will be discussed on a case-by-case basis. If your child missed a class, the teacher will provide the classroom work and homework assignments. The teacher will also be available to discuss the material with you and your child. Parents can schedule a makeup class, subject to availability. Students can attend an unlimited number of makeup classes during the current session in the same subject or related subjects (subject to availability). Makeup classes can be carried over into the next semester at the discretion of the administration; however, the make up class cannot be used as the "credit" towards the next session.
In the event of inclement weather, information about school closing will be posted on our site in the "announcement" section, an e-mail will be sent to all parents, and a voice message will be recorded on the phone number for our branch which is 201-844-8535. We will make every attemp to schedule makeup classes but if no makeup class is scheduled, parents will receive credit for the missed class(es) towards the next semester.
Books and Supplies
Students in our Logic & Math classes are required to purchase a set of Math books for their classes. Information and details on which books to purchase will be provided after we receive your registration.
Students in some of our Russian might be required to purchase some instructional and/or literally materials.
Students in our Coding classes are expected to bring their own laptop/chromebook to each class
Catching Up and Private Tutoring
In case a student needs help catching up when starting a new class at AlphaMinds Academy mid-semester, we can arrange one on one tutoring at an additional fee. On average, in order for the student to catch up and feel comfortable in the class, one hour is needed for every 2-3 classes missed from the start of the school year. Private and semi-private classes can also be arranged on an ongoing basis at the parents request, based on teacher and space availability. Please contact us for rates.
No refunds will be issued for the classes already attended.
If you withdraw your child within the first three weeks from the initial registration, we will refund 100% of your remaining tuition minus a $35 processing fee; no refund will be issued after the child has attended the first three weeks of classes.*
In case of a move out of the area mid semester, AlphaMinds Academy requires two weeks notice after which we will issue a full refund for the remaining classes minus $35 processing fee.
*three week "trial period" does not apply to the Summer "Bridge" Program
