At The Academy, we like to keep class sizes smaller to give our instructors the opportunity to monitor and structure the direction of the class in response to the students needs. In an effort to keep these limited seats available to as many that would like to attend, our refund policy is as follows:

Our Refund Policy is good for 90 days after your investment. Our transfer policy is good for 1 year.

Within 3 days of your paid registration, you may receive a full refund less 3%.

Within the 90 day refund period, and with a 30 day notice of your registered dates, you may receive a full refund less 25%. Our transfer options are good for up to 1 year.
