ATS is a nonprofit, self-supporting program which receives no federal or state funding. Course fees for the 2013 4/5 Program are $328 per class. Financial aid is available.
ATS provides supervision during class time only. ATS staff do not escort students to and from class.
Parents will be required to sign a Policy Agreement form to indicate their choice between 1) an authorized adult signing their student in and out of class each day, or 2) allowing their student to leave class without adult accompaniment and verifying the student is mature enough to be on campus independently without supervision. More information will be included in students' admission packets.
