CANCELLATIONS AND MAKEUPS
For any lessons missed by a teacher, the Academy will attempt to provide a substitute teacher. If a substitute teacher is unavailable, a private makeup lesson with the teacher will be scheduled promptly.

For students missing a private lesson, the Kentucky Arts Academy holds free one hour group make up workshop classes every month with different topics. To sign up for a makeup workshop class, contact the office and not the instructor for a date and time.
Every student here is on a month-to-month basis. To discontinue lessons and to discontinue charges to your account, fill out the withdrawal form BEFORE the 15th of your last month. We do not prorate tuition for the last month’s lessons. Students will be responsible for their last month’s tuition whether or not they attend lessons. ________
AVERAGE OF FOUR LESSONS PER MONTH
Monthly tuition is based on a 48 week year. We are closed four weeks for holidays. In the long months, you will get five lessons, short months such as November and December, you will get three lessons, and most months you will get four lessons. The tuition is the SAME each month; i.e. we don’t charge you more when you have five lessons, and we don’t charge you less when you have three lessons in a month. This makes everyone’s accounting easier. _________
The KAA operates year round and does not close for the summer. If you are taking a month off for vacation and want to resume the next month, your payment is still due on the first of the month to reserve your lesson space. The lessons for the month you miss can be made up when you return from vacation.
