Refund & Cancellation Policy

Summer Camp with Academia’s Flexible Payment Plan

Academia will offer a refund of payments made minus a cancellation fee of 20% of the payments made up until March 16th 2018.  No refund can be given after that date.   Registration fees will not be refunded.  The refund will be returned to the card you used to pay within 30 days of your request to cancel.

Summer Camp (not paid using Academia’s Flexible Payment Plan)

Academia will offer a refund of the tuition fee if you email operations@chicagoacademia.com with your intention to cancel at least 45 days prior to the start date of the camp, individual summer children’s class, or summer camp extended day session. Registration fees will not be refunded. The refund will be returned to the card you used to pay within 30 days of your request to cancel, minus a 20% fee.

After School Program

SPECIFIC DATE PROGRAM
Please email operations@chicagoacademia.com at least 10 days prior to the start date of the first class to receive a full refund to the card used to register. No refunds are given after this time period. Registration fees will not be refunded.

FULL SEMESTER ENROLLMENT (full week or specific days of the week for the full semester)

The total payment for the semester is divided into multiple payments in order to spread the cost over time.  The first payment is due at time of registration (note this is not a registration fee but a tuition fee that happens to be made at time of registration). This amount will not be refunded in the event of cancellation.  To avoid being liable for the remaining payments for the semester, please email operations@chicagoacademia.com at least 30 days before the start of the semester.  No refunds for monthly payments will be made within 30 days of the first class date. For example if the semester you register for has total semester price divided across four monthly payments, you will not be refunded any of those payments unless you cancel within 30 days of the first class start date (first day of the Oak Park District 97 school semester).

General
Academia reserves the right to cancel any class or event that does not meet minimum enrollment. If this happens, you will be notified via email, and a full refund including registration fee will be put back on the card used to register.

In all other cases, registration fees are not refunded if the student cancels their participation.
