What is your refund policy?
If we are notified of your need to cancel
  • On or before Friday, June 5th, 2015: 90% refund
  • Between Sat., June 6th – Tues., June 16th, 2015: 50% refund
  • After Wednesday, June 17th, 2015: No refund available
 
Do I need to purchase a textbook for my class(es)?
No. On the first day of school, teachers will pass out textbooks, if the class requires one. The student will fill out a card attesting to the condition of the book, and agreeing to return it in like-condition. If the book is damaged or lost, the cost of replacing the book is the student's responsibility.

Is there financial aid available?
There are a limited number of partial scholarships available (up to 75%, excluding any materials fees). Scholarships are based upon proof of financial need. Total taxable income must not exceed $35,000- even if you are enrolling more than one child.  Applications must be postmarked by Monday, May 18, 2015. The application holds your child's spot in his/her class(es). Click here to download the application. Notification will be given by June 2nd, 2015, upon which the remaining balance is due by June 12th to guarantee enrollment.
 
What if my child needs to be absent for an entire week?
Daily attendance is required for all Academic and credited Elective classes. To receive credit, students may not miss more than two days. In Enrichment classes, an entire week’s absence is possible although not recommended. Please make note of any planned absences on your registration form. Make-up work may be assigned by the teacher.

What if my child wants to take only one Enrichment class or one semester of an Academic class?
You may enroll your child in only one Enrichment course, although there is no fee reduction to only take one course. If your child needs only to attend one semester of an Academic class, the arrangement is possible. First semester is June 22- July 8, 2015 and second semester is July 9- 24, 2015. Your child only needs to attend the days during the semester for which he/she has signed up. There is no fee reduction to only take one semester, or one Enrichment. If a 10th-12th grader would like to take only one Elective class, tuition is $350 (plus any additional material fees).

What if I want to change a class after enrollment?
We will be happy to make a change if there is space in another class before the program begins. Many classes fill to capacity before registration ends, so enroll early and make sure it is for the class(es) your child wants. If you request the change after Friday, June 5th, there will be a $25 fee assessed.

What if we enroll early but then have a change of plans or an emergency situation?
Our refund policy still applies:
  • On or before Friday, June 5th, 2015: 90% refund
  • Between Sat., June 6th – Tues., June 16th, 2015: 50% refund
  • After Wednesday, June 17th, 2015: No refund available

Back to questions
 
What if my child is a reluctant participant in summer learning?
Many of our classes are very popular with even reluctant learners. It sometimes helps if the parent chooses one class and the student chooses another. We do not allow one child to compromise the learning of another. If your child is not participating properly in class, you will receive a phone call from the teacher, and possibly an administrator.
Back to questions
 
How will I know my child’s progress?
Each of the SAEP teachers has a web-based grade program. Both you and your student will receive a username and password. You can access this program at any point during the five-week program and for three weeks after. If you have questions or concerns regarding the grade or attendance of your child, you can email the teacher directly. Also, some of the classes have presentations to which you will be invited, such as art, dance and drama. You may also call the office and make arrangements for a classroom visitation.

Will my child’s school receive a transcript?
For students enrolled in credited classes, transcripts can be requested at the end of the program.

What if my child needs tutoring in the Academic classes?
For students enrolled in an Academic, year-long course, we provide free tutoring by qualified teaching assistants for forty-five minutes after class (1:15 PM - 2:00 PM).

How will my young child navigate a college campus?
Before school begins, we will host an Orientation. Parents are encouraged to come with their student/s to meet the Administration and take a campus tour with a Teacher's Assistant (T.A). 
On the first day of instruction, we request all parents to park in Lot B6 and walk their child/ren to Jacaranda Walk (see map) where he/she will meet his/her teacher. The first period teacher will bring the students back to Jacaranda Walk to meet with their second period teacher. On the first day only, at the end of the last class, the teacher will walk the class back to Jacaranda Walk where you can meet your student. This is a good time to coordinate a regular pick up location!

T.A.s, wearing SAEP shirts, will be placed throughout the campus the entire program to make sure your child is safe and knows where to go.
 
Where may I park or drop off and pick up my child?
Drop off and pick up on the first day will be in Lot B6, because all students will meet their 1st period teachers on the Jacaranda Walk, as well as be brought back to Jacaranda Walk at the end of the day. You may purchase a program pass (for a one-time fee of $5.98) 
After the first day, depending upon which building your child is in the drop off location may be different than the pick up location. Drop off and pick up is to take place in parking lots only. We recommend that you stay with your car when you drop off or pick up your child. We have “crossing guards” at each parking lot to assist your child across the street. If you leave your car unattended or if you drop off or pick up your child in the street, you may receive a ticket from the campus police. For the safety of your child, please follow the instructions of the “crossing guards.”

Is there daycare available for my child after the SAEP?
Yes, there are two camps that begin after our classes are completed for the day. Please call Sunny Days Camp 12:45 - 6:00 P.M. at (818) 677-3617 or Tennis and Swim Camp 12:45 - 6:00 P.M. at (818) 677-2058 for further information and registration. We coordinate with both programs for their camp representatives to pick up SAEP students.
Back to questions
 
Do I need to turn in proof that my child has met the prerequisite for a course?
No. On the first day of class, the teacher will give a pre-test to each student to make sure that every student is enrolled in the correct level of the sequence. If the child tests higher/lower, adjustments will be made after contacting the parent.

When does registration close?
