of Fine Arts Foxborough
All classes are held in Foxborough.
Ages for Programs
From grades Kindergarten to 4th students are in the Kids Program. From 5th to 12th students are in the teen program. However there are some classes that are offered to teens that are categorized as adult program. For list of classes that fall into that category please contact the studio. Students may also place outside their grade, skill wise, and may be placed in a higher level based on teacher recommendation.
Class Cancellation Policy
Weather cancellations: We follow the Foxboro Public School cancellation decisions, but we never want our students to travel in weather that their own judgment tells them is unsafe. If the roads are not safe to drive on regardless of school department decisions, call us and let us know you will not be in. Make-up classes for weather related cancellations follow the guidelines for all make-up classes (see Make-up Policy).
We respect all cultural and religious traditions therefore we request notification of decisions not to attend based upon these reasons and make-up classes can be arranged. There are no classes during legal or state holidays. These were calculated into your tuition schedule.
There are no planned regular classes during school vacations. Weekend classes are conducted the 1st weekend of vacation but not the second. School vacations have also been pre-planned into your tuition schedule.
Teacher cancellations: Make-up classes will be scheduled should a teacher need to cancel a class.
Please notify the school two weeks prior to leaving the program. This allows new students time to fill your slot.
There is no refund of tuition after class has begun.
Make-ups are possible (in accordance with policy) at a later date.
Hunakai Studio has the right to cancel classes due to lack of enrollment.
Make-Up Classes Policy
In the past Hunakai Studio has always tried to accommodate student requests to make up a class missed. Though we intend to continue this policy it has become necessary to make the conditions clear as to when and how a make-up class can be provided.
Arrangements with the instructor to attend a make-up class can be made if: there is room in the class at the requested time; it has the approval of the instructor of the class, the request is submitted at least 48hours in advance of the desired make up time and most of all the student needs to be actively enrolled at the time of the make-up class.
No request for a make-up can be honored unless the student is currently paid and enrolled at the school. This means that should a student leave the program any unused make-up classes will not be scheduled until he/she enrolls again as a student in the future. We are a small non-profit school without the resources to accommodate students who are not actively enrolled.
Because of the length of summer classes no make up will be allowed.
Every 2 months the same amount of tuition is due. Tuition will no longer change each session. Tuition is still based on however many weeks there are in sessions for the entire year. In the 2011/2012 year there are 5 sessions.
1 hour class tuition is $215
1.5 hour class tuition is $235
2 hour class tuition $275
3 hour class tuition $295
For the clay, digital arts and printmaking classes there is an additional fee to cover the costs of materials. The fee is due every session.
No refunds after class begins. We will refund full payment up to two weeks before start of class. After that, any refund is at the discretion of the school and will be a tuition credit. Tuition credit may be used for any future classes. No refunds for missed classes!
Deposits are non-refundable.
Late Fee Policy
Tuition is due two weeks before the first class of a session. A session consists of a two month period. Because of our liberal make-up policy no discounts are given for missed classes (see make-up policy). The school will post upcoming tuition reminders prior to the due date. If students are not returning for the next session or hope to change classes they should notify the teacher once these notices are posted. If a payment is late an additional $20 late fee will be attached on top of the tuition.
ENROLLMENT IS NOT GUARANTEED WITHOUT PAYMENT. CLASS SIZES ARE LIMITED!
Child Pick-up Policy
No child will be released to anyone, at the end of class, who has not been approved by a custodial parent. Approval must be received in writing prior to the pick-up. The custodial parent must also call and leave the name of anyone coming that day to pick up their child. Please tell anyone who has been approved by the parent to bring one form of picture ID which the teacher will ask to see before releasing the child. The purpose of this policy is to assure safety for your child. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Late Child Pick-up
Our staff and instructors are all busy professionals with families of their own. They all appreciate a timely pick up at the end of class. Unusual circumstances do warrant a call to the school. "I lost track of the time" does not qualify as an acceptable excuse for late pick up. Children become distressed when they are still in class but other children have left. The teacher or adult staff will remain with the student until he/she is picked up. However, the parent will be charged $20/15 minute block of time that the staff person is required to care for the child. Payment is due at that time and is to go directly to the staff person who has been caring for the child.
Needs based scholarship applications are available through the school. All applications are held in strict confidence. These awards are dependent upon available funds. In order to encourage family participation special family discounts are available to family members who are registered for classes during the same monthly periods. The lesser of the two tuitions will be discounted 20%
