FAQs

General

Can I enroll my child in all the week(s)?

Yes! The workshop weeks are planned so that students can take either any one week separately or all of them together.

My child is really shy. Will the public speaking program be a poor fit?

Not at all! All our programs are built to accommodate (if not target) students who would traditionally not feel comfortable speaking in front of people. That’s part of what we work on with the students.

Can I follow along with what my child is learning?

Parents/Guardians will be able to follow along with all assignments and works through Google Classroom as the week progresses. We’ll also occasionally send parents email updates with the students’ work.

Who is eligible to participate? 

Students entering Grades 5 through 9 in Fall 2020 are eligible to participate.

Financial

Is Financial aid available?

We have limited need-based financial aid available on a first come, first served basis. Please apply here.

When are payments due?

A $50 deposit is due with the application to secure your child’s spot in the workshop. All other payments are due by June 15th.

Materials

Will my child get a certificate at the end?

Yes, students will go get a certificate as well as their work in a digital magazine with the articles they and their peers submit.
