Drop In Playspace TiersTier One - Full Price: $22.50/class

Tiered Tuition: BAX is committed to offering high-quality and accessible arts programs for all. As such, each term’s tuition is priced at three tiers, which includes sliding scale tuition of up to 40% subsidy so that each family can assess the tuition price that works best for their household. This is based on an honor system of your-expressed-need (we do not require financial documentation). By paying what you are able, you help us better meet the needs of other families. Registration is taken on a first come, first serve basis, and half of the tuition must be received to secure a spot.

Active Processing Fee: Registrations through Active, our online registration system, include a non-refundable per registration processing fee of $2.50 (for registrations less than $125) or $5.94 (for registrations $125 and above). This per registration fee replaces our $35 Annual registration fee for term registrations (not year-long workshops*). Credit Card processing fees are paid by BAX and we encourage you to use e-checks when possible as they incur lower fees. 

Annual Performance Workshop Registration Fee: Families enrolling in our year-long performance workshop programs (DPW or AcroBAX) will be charged a $30 flat rate (previously $35) annual registration fee per family in addition to the Active processing fee of $5.94. 

Playspace Package Discount: If families register for 8 Playspace Drop In classes during a single term, they will automatically receive a discount of 13% which is approximately the cost of one class – Register for 8 classes and receive 1 class free! 

Family Value Discount: Families who register another sibling in the same term or register their child for a second class receive 5% off. This discount will be applied to the lowest cost class.

      Payments & Policies

Payment Policy: Families have the option of paying in full at the time of registration or paying a deposit of 50% and enrolling in a payment plan that will be autobilled. Payment deadlines are listed below:

  • Deposit + 1 installment (due 10/21/2020, 4th week of classes)
  • Deposit + 2 installments (due 10/14/2020, 3rd week of classes and 11/4/2020, 6th week of classes)

Drop In Classes (Playspace): Payment is due in full at the time of registration. 

Refund Policy: After the 4th week of the term (halfway mark), refunds will not be issued. If circumstances require a family to drop a class after the 4th week, a prorated credit for future programming will be issued. 

Make Up Classes: Families can participate in 1 make up class per 8 week term. To schedule a make up class, please email info@bax.org

Prorated Tuition: Provided space is available in the class, prorated tuition will be available to families joining later in the term. To inquire about joining a class after the term has begun, please email info@bax.org

Notes for Fall 2020 Classes:

  • All classes in the Fall 2020 term will take place live (synchronously) over Zoom, with additional asynchronous enrichment (such as weekly class outlines, playlists, creative prompts to build on class experiences, and ways for students to share photos and videos with their teacher) provided through Google Sites.
  • Some teachers may elect to schedule class “field trips” to meet up and have that week’s class in Prospect Park (or other outdoor locations nearby BAX). Families will be notified of any field trip dates during the first class or soon thereafter. A general permission form will be required for families/students who choose to participate, in which appropriate health precautions such as masks, social distancing, etc. will be outlined and required. If a student is not able to attend the field trip class, BAX will make accommodations to record or livestream that class, or offer an alternative enrichment option or make-up class.
  • Most classes will require at least 5 students enroll in order to run, and most classes will be capped at 10 students to ensure an optimal teacher to student ratio. BAX will be in communication to families with relevant enrollment updates.
