Can I enroll in just a few classes vs. the whole week?
Yes!, We open the enrollment to parents who need coverage for the full week first, so they can be sure to get the spots they need. Then we open it up to everyone to enroll in classes a la carte. Prices to enroll in individual classes are listed with the class descriptions below.

When does it start/end?
Classes will begin the week of January 6, 2020 and will run until Spring Break, with the exception of days when school is not in session.

What happens with the students after enrichment classes ends for the day?
When the class ends at 8:30am, the instructors will escort the students to the cafeteria for breakfast or to the playground where there will be supervision by MAGI staff.
