May I apply instructional funds from my child's charter to pay for Lab classes?
Yes, if we are an approved vendor for your charter school, you can request to apply instructional funds to our fees.

We must receive a PO from your charter before your child can begin classes.
Do you offer sliding scale options or scholarships?
Yes, we provide a limited number of partial need-based scholarships for students who are not enrolled in an NCB charter and who qualify for financial assistance. Email for more information.
What happens if we decide to dis-enroll before the end of the semester?
We plan our staffing and daily programming based on semester enrollment. To give us time to adjust in response to changes in enrollment, we require 30-days written notice if you plan to dis-enroll before the end of the semester. Please email to notify her of your intent to disenroll.
