Enrichment Classes - Summer 2019

Enrichment classes are a format we began two summers ago that allows a richer, more in-depth curriculum. Students will pick their 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices for each week they attend and then will be assigned to one weekly enrichment class. Longer time blocks 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.

Blazing Trails' School Year 2019-2020 Fees*

The fees below reflect the 2019-2020 school year's basic monthly tuition charges, are based on a four-week month and are subject to change by the BT Board of Directors. Months will be billed according to the number of weeks in each 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 $595.00 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.
