The Academy at MoCA Westport supports the community by providing learning opportunities for all ages. The Academy is committed to programming that fosters a growth mindset in its participants, while blending visual arts, music, wellness and academic themes throughout its wide array of course offerings. Our goal is to help our students perceive art, music, themselves and the world around them more clearly, and to enhance sensory awareness that connects us to the world around us.
Academy at MoCA Westport Late Pick Up Policy
In the event that a parent/guardian/caregiver is running late to pick up their child from a class or camp at MoCA Westport, please call the front desk at MoCA Westport (203) 222-7070 to communicate with our team. If you have an emergency and cannot reach MoCA Westport on time, please try to notify us immediately. We allow for a 5 minute cushion for traffic and unexpected things of that nature. After the initial 5 minutes past your scheduled pick up time, the below fee will be billed to you. If you are late, you will be responsible for late pick-up charges ($10 per participant for each additional 5 minutes); all outstanding charges must be reconciled for the participant to register for or attend subsequent programming at MoCA Westport. Please have someone else available to pick up your student if you will be late and notify us by email (in writing) that you are giving permission for us to release the participant to them.
To ensure the optimal experience, we schedule our teachers and purchase our materials in advance. As a non-profit organization, cancellations make it challenging for us to manage our enrollments and plan for programs. Tuition refunds made by request are available up until five business days prior to the start of the course (this differs from Camp MoCA Refund Policy See Below), any registration fees incurred shall be the responsibility of the registrant upon cancellation.
Pending availability, a make-up class may be granted upon request for the fee of a single class.
Refunds are not available for missed classes due to illness or exposure to an illness – including but not limited to Covid-19.
If a class is canceled by MoCA Westport, we will offer participants an opportunity to reschedule and/ or a credit. There will be no refunds for days canceled due to inclement weather however, where possible, credits will be offered. 75% of camp tuition is refundable and will only be issued up to 30 days before the first day of camp. As of June 1st, 2023, camp cancellations are not allowed and will be non-refundable. Camp tuition may be converted into a tax-deductible donation if the participant does not attend camp. Camp registration may be transferred to another eligible participant within 48 hours notice to firstname.lastname@example.org.
