How does payment work? How can I get a discount?
Walk-in $24 per hour
Registered $20 per hour
Generous need-based financial aid is available! Email email@example.com and he will work with you to make sure your child is able to attend.
You can pay either upfront for the blocks that you expect to attend or after each block you attend at the Walk-in price. There is no minimum attendance requirement after you register.
There are two additional ways to get a discount:
When is G.T.ed Spring?
Our spring programs runs for 10 weeks from Sunday, February 19th through Sunday, April 30th. Programs will have a holiday on Sunday April 9th.
When are G.T.ed's Summer sessions?
There are two, and both are 2 weeks long.
Session 1: Sunday, June 11th to Saturday, June 24th
Session 2: Sunday, August 6th to Saturday, August 19th
What's the difference between drop-in and traditional classes?
For drop-in classes, each meeting is its own, stand-alone class, and you do not need information from prior classes to understand each class. These are ideal for students who are not sure if they will be able to attend all 10 classes.
In traditional classes, each class uses material from its previous meetings. If a student misses a meeting, they can reach out to have the instructor send make-up materials. These are best for students who want a deeper look into a topic.
G.T.ed also offers one-off classes that only meet once. They are a great way to get to know us and our instructors!
I cannot fit a class I want to take into my schedule for spring, will it be offered again in the summer?
These courses are already scheduled for summer:
Chemistry Through Experiments
How to Read Hieroglyphics
Cryptology (Cipher of the Day)
First Steps into Programming
We expect to add more classes in the coming weeks.
Do I only have to pay for what my child attends?
Yes! Our program is designed to have a very low barrier to entry. Try out a class and see if you like it! You're only billed for what you attend.
What happens if I pay for a class upfront but my child has a scheduling conflict or wants to try another class instead?
You are only billed for time attended! Any payment received that exceeds classtime attended can be applied to any other G.T.ed offerings (including one-off classes, drop-in classes, activities, D&D, or the Youth Education Council).
