Flexible Scheduling Options

Flexible Scheduling and Make-Up Policy

Families are busy! At The Art Academy, we understand — our convenient and unique class make-up policy can accommodate your schedule. Since most classes are offered more than once per term, students who miss class may simply attend at a different time.

For example, if a student misses a Wednesday evening class, they may come on Thursday instead. Alternatively, they may attend twice the following week — whichever is more convenient. Students may even attend twice a week for four weeks if necessary. With this option, our program fits around vacations, illnesses, and other activities. ¬†We know of no other program that offers such flexibility!

When making up a class, please follow these simple rules:

  • DO NOT make up classes during the first and last weeks of the term.
  • There is no need to notify us of missed classes or of plans to make up classes.
  • No student can attend more than 8 classes per term unless registered for multiple classes.
  • We ask make-up students to wait a few minutes to avoid rearranging the regular students in class; we will find a place for you.
  • Sometimes, sections fill to capacity. If for any reason a class time is unavailable for make-up, we will post a notice on the first week of the term.
  • Due to the specific lesson plans and limited schedule of Summer Camps, Manga, and Figure Construction, missed classes cannot be made up.
