TUITION WITH AUTOMATIC PAYMENT PLAN - Credit/Debit Card
By registering your student, you acknowledge that you are the financially responsible party.
SPECIAL ACTIVITIES will have a one time charge upon enrollment for that activity. (Includes: Swim Meets, Open Swims, Private Lessons, etc.) Refunds for special activities are only provided with at least 24 hour notice of your cancellation. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice, or no shows, will not be refunded.
Private Lessons are charged at the time of your lesson. Cancellations with less than 24 hour notice, or no shows, will still be charged for the scheduled private lesson.
Class tuition is automatically charged on the 25th of each month for the upcoming month using the credit or debit card you have on file. Credit cards are securely stored in accordance with security laws. Changes may be made to your credit card at any time through your customer portal or at the front desk. A payment reminder will be emailed around the 15th of every month. A payment receipt will be emailed to the billing contact on file. If you desire payment to be made by one or more additional individuals, you are responsible for securing and submitting that payment before the auto payment date. All unpaid tuition will be charged via the credit card on file in your account on the auto payment date. Barron is unable to split payment between one or more credit cards or accounts during the automatic payment process. You or another party may make a pre-payment at the front desk or via phone at any time during regular business hours.
FORMS OF PAYMENT
Barron Swim School accepts MasterCard, VISA, Discover and Cash. No Checks Accepted. Payment is due prior to service.
Once enrolled in our instructional classes or team, you will stay enrolled with monthly tuition charges until you withdraw from class. If you choose to withdraw for the upcoming month, a withdrawal form must be submitted to the office or online by the 20th of the current month. Once tuition is charged for the upcoming month, you have committed for that month. We do not issue a refund if you withdraw earlier in the month and there are classes remaining. Your tuition is based on enrollment (guaranteed spot) and not a reflection of attendance.
Barron Swim School is a year round program with a flat rate monthly tuition based on an average of four classes per month. If five classes are available, we do not increase tuition. If three classes are available, we do not pro rate tuition.
ENROLLMENT FEE - APPLIES TO CLASSES AND TEAM - DOES NOT APPLY TO SPECIAL ACTIVITIES
The enrollment fee is paid when you initially enroll and every year on the anniversary month of your original enrollment. The fee covers administrative cost and student/athlete secondary insurance
MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
We believe we offer the best children's program in the St. Louis area. If after your child's first month of classes (new students only) you are not satisfied for any reason, we will refund 100% of your tuition.
I agree that I am registering my child for the appropriate class level based on their current ability and that Barron Swim School reserves the right to change my child's class if they determine they were placed in the incorrect level.
You need to agree to the policies annually online in order for your child to participate at Barron Swim School.
It is imperative that we have your current email address and that you are opening/reading our emails. Emailing is our preferred form of communication. Your email address will allow us to inform you of important billing information, facility closings, upcoming events, special activities, and gift shop specials. Look for Email Newsletters that are sent out bi-weekly with this information.
MAKE UP POLICY (Special Activities and Accelerated classes do not qualify for make-ups)
Make Ups may be scheduled for illness only.
Please do not bring your child to class if they are showing any signs of illness.
We ask that you call or email ahead to notify our office staff of your child's impending absence.
You may schedule your make up class no sooner than 2 days prior to when you would like to schedule your class by contacting our front office.
Make ups cannot be rescheduled, and you cannot make up a missed make up class.
All unused make ups expire when you withdraw, and are not carried over upon re-enrollment.
For their safety and comfort, Little Junior, Kinder Junior & Beginner students are eligible to make up after they have attended 4 of their regular classes.
Consistent attendance in a child's regularly scheduled class is imperative for the following reasons:
For your child to develop and retain skills. Lesson plans change weekly in order to make each class new, exciting, fun and adventurous.
Bonding with one's teacher so they feel safe and comfortable in the pool, which enable more progressive learning.
Students are not evaluated in a make up class. Students who attend their class each week are perpetually evaluated and move on to new levels more quickly and efficiently than those who miss class often. Availability for make-ups is limited.
INCLEMENT WEATHER/CONTAMINATION CLOSING
In the event of inclement weather, we will post on our facebook page and send an email to your email on file if classes are canceled. The message for morning classes will be available by 8:30 AM, mid-day classes by 10:30 AM, evening classes by 2:30 PM. We do not follow any school district closings.
In the event of a pool contamination closing, we will notify you as soon as possible via email (and phone when possible). Please understand that this may happen when you are already in class or en route to our facility, and it may be impossible for us to notify you in advance of your arrival.
If Barron Swim School cancels class for any reason, we will provide a make-up option for your missed class.
