Things To Know


Who can Sign up for Classes?

For Adult Classes: We are proud to welcome and admit students at least 16 years of age and of any race, color, national, or ethnic origin to all classes. You do not have to be a resident of Northside School District to take any of our classes.
We do not allow children to accompany adults to class, nor do we provide child care. 
Students under 16 will be permitted to register only with prior consent of the Instructor and Coordinator and may be required to have an adult sign up with them.  

For Children’s Classes:   We ask that you adhere to the age requirements listed in the course description. Unless designated a "Mom & Me" class, adults are asked to leave the classroom upon class start. This is to minimize distractions and to allow the focus to be on the instructor, as well as for space considerations. All of our instructors are background-checked and are made aware of our emergency procedures

When can I sign up?
For most classes, registrations are taken until the first day of the class if space is still available in a class. However, we encourage you to sign up early so that a class may not be cancelled due to lack of registration.
For some classes where supplies or ingredients need to be purchased or prepared ahead of class, registration may close 24 hours prior to class start.
