  • Afterschool enrichment

    The first class of any afterschool enrichment session if free for anyone.
    Anyone, who attends the second class or onwards, should have completed the payment for the semester.
    We understand and acknowledge that students opinion and circumstances change rapidly in the beginninig of the semester, so we have tried to adjust our refund policy to accommodate parents the best we can.
    For more information on after school classes, please visit the Enrichment website: enrichment.bayareachess.com/afterschool

    Refund policy based on the # of classes of the semester:
    • 100% refund before the second class
    • 50% refund before the third class
    • 0% refund after the third class

      : My child has missed the first free class due to various reasons (flier didn't get home in time; my child's friend attends the program and we decided to enroll my child as well). Can we have the second class as the free class and pay a prorated fee for the remaining session?
      A: Unfortunately, we can't accommodate that request because it makes it difficult for us to plan and schedule the free class other than the first class in our scheduled classes. We can certainly prorate the session fee with the number of classes remaining in the session/semester.
