“In consideration of entering onto the premises of (insert host church) and participating in activities of Aspire! Conservatory conducted on said premises, I agree to assume full responsibility for my activities while present on the premises, and I knowingly and freely assume all known and unknown risks, including but not limited to falls, disease transmission, and acts of other persons on the premises, whether accidental or deliberate. I agree to comply with all rules, regulations and procedures imposed by the leadership of Aspire and (insert host church); and I, for myself and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin, hereby release and hold harmless Aspire! Conservatory and (insert host church), their officers, directors, employees and other officials with respect to any injury, disability, death, or damage to my person or property, whether caused by the acts of said persons, by others on the premises, or by acts of God.”
Students are not allowed to be one on one with an instructor. Someone over the age of 18 must stay in the room during the lesson.
Parents enrolling students in group classes must escort their child into the building. As long as the class has 3 or more students, parents may leave the building and come back at pick-up time.
Special Needs Group Classes
Due to the needs of these students, parents must remain in the building and accessible during their group classes.
While participating in classes by Aspire! Conservatory, students are expected to be on their best behavior showing respect for the instructors, other students, and the facility itself. In the event that a students’ behavior is not compliant with the expectations, parents will be consulted, and the student may be dismissed from the program. Fees will not be refunded for students who are dismissed for inappropriate behavior.

Aspire! or Instructor Initiated Cancellation
If either Aspire or your private instructor cancels a lesson you have paid for, your payment for that lesson will be credited to your next month’s bill. It is the instructor’s responsibility to notify both the student and the director of the conservatory in advance of the cancellation.
Student/Parent Initiated Cancellations
If a student or parent/guardian cancels a lesson or misses a class, no refund or credit will be applied. You are still responsible for payment for missed lessons in order to remain on the instructor’s schedule. We do not offer make-up lessons as many of our instructors have full schedules, and others drive distances to teach only 1 or 2 days a week. Please understand that once an instructor dedicates time to you in their schedule, they are dependent upon your commitment for their livelihood. Students/parents are expected to contact the private instructor in advance of the cancelled lesson.
If a group instructor cancels a class session, the class will be re-scheduled for make-up week at the end of the semester. It is the responsibility of the group instructor to notify each student and the director of the conservatory in advance of the cancellation.
Inclement Weather Policy
With the presence of multiple school districts within the Tri-State area, Aspire! Conservatory will follow its own schedule of closing for inclement weather and not that of any one particular school district. It will be the goal of Aspire! to not cancel classes for inclement weather.
When possible, inclement weather will result in virtual learning days for lessons/classes. Any changes in our regular schedule due to weather will be posted on our Facebook page and messaged to clients through the REMIND messaging system after 12:00 noon.
In the unlikely event that we are unable to offer a lesson/class due to weather, adjustments to the students account will be made.
