NEW Enrichment Summer - 2017

Enrichment classes are a new format we are starting this summer that allows a more in-depth curriculum. Students will pick their 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices and then will be assigned to one enrichment class for the 1/2 week time period. Having this larger time block will facilitate exploration, discovery and a more child-centered approach to learning. Students will have the time and attention to really build skills and explore interests. Please, see the Summer Games/Enrichment Schedules for more information about your child's choices. NOTE: There are 2 pages for each flyer. Make sure to read BOTH pages.

Summer Schedules
and flyers with more specific curriculum and other information are available in PDF format from the "Summer Programs" tab on the left. Printed schedules and flyers will also be available at Blazing Trails.

NOTE: The cost of fieldtrips is included in the tuition unless marked with a "$" on the calendars. Some scholarship money is available for FT - Check with BT office for availability.

Blazing Trails' School Year 2017-2018 Fees*

The fees below reflect the 2017-2018 school year's basic monthly tuition charges, are based on a four-week month and are subject to change by the B.T. council and PTSA board. Months will be billed according to the number of weeks in the month. While most months have 4 weeks, some have 5 weeks and others only 3 weeks. If you wish to have care for more than one time slot, add the column amounts together. For example: 5 days per week for both before and after school, tuition would be $578.00 for a four-week month. This includes the extra hours for Wednesdays' 75 minute early dismissals. Please, see charts below for your specific schedule. Care for school breaks are billed only if you sign-up. Please, see our "Family Handbook" on the Documents tab for additional information on fees and daily schedules.
