School Class Cancellation and Tuition Refund Policy:

March 13, 2020: Due to the COVID-19 emergency, we are modifying our Student Cancellation Policy to waive the cancellation fee for students who must cancel because they are ill or at risk. If we receive guidance that we should cancel classes for the time being, our School Cancellation policy will apply.

Student Cancellation Policy: If a student cancels prior to the class date, the student will receive a full tuition credit for the class to be used toward a future class, minus a $50 cancellation fee. There is no monetary refund for any reason.

School Cancellation Policy: If the school finds it necessary to cancel a class, we will notify students at least 10 days prior to the start of class (unless an emergency arises just before the class is scheduled to begin). Tuition and registration fee (if applicable) will be refunded or applied as a tuition credit for a future class. We cannot be responsible for non-refundable transportation or lodging costs.

While we sympathize when circumstances arise that prevent a student from attending, we must make commitments to our instructors and other students. We cannot be responsible for non-refundable transportation or lodging costs. Tuition credits will be valid through December 2022.

If a student cancels a lodging reservation prior to the start of a stay a full refund will be given minus a $30 cancellation fee.

Class Cancellation Due to Weather Issues: In the case of inclement weather, please call the School at (802) 228-8770 and listen to the message which will notify students of a class cancellation by 7:00am. We will also make an attempt to call students in the event of inclement weather causing a class cancellation. When possible, cancelled classes will be rescheduled. If classes are not rescheduled, full refund and registration fee (if applicable) or credit will be offered.

Late Arrival/Early Departure: We expect that participants will attend the entire class as scheduled. Late arrivals and early departures are disruptive for both the instructor and the other participants. Tuition adjustments will not be made for late arrivals or early departures. When possible, please notify the Office if you know you will be late or require an early departure.

Lodging and Meals: Students may purchase lunch from office staff, or from the staff member who circulates to each classroom. Food is delivered to each classroom. Cold drinks are available during the day from the refrigerator in the barn or in the refrigerator in the Meadowview room (pay on the honor system), and picnic tables are available throughout the campus. The Dining Hall will be closed this summer.

We are not offering on-campus lodging at this time. Instead, you may choose from a number of local inns, bed and breakfasts, and motels. The Golden Stage Inn, just down the road in Proctorsville, offers a 25% discount for a stay of two or more nights.

Pets or no pets: Pets other than service animals are not allowed on campus. There are other local establishments that welcome pets for an additional charge. Check with office staff for help in identifying these.
