New Students

New students should fill out our Customer Profile Form. You can download the form, fill it out and turn it in at the front desk or email it to info@westsideacademy.com

Registration

A one time family membership fee of $30.00 is due at registration.  This includes full membership & member discounts to all programs in the facility. Any account that has been inactive for a 12 month period of time will incur a re-registration fee of $10.00.  New members receive 20% off their first Pro-Shop purchase (must be used before or on the day of their very first class - valid for a one time use only).

Tuition

Tuition is based on 48 weeks of classes per year, an average of 4 weeks of classes per month. (Some months you will have 5 classes and some months you will have 3.) Scheduled make ups are listed on the calendar of events. To avoid late fees, tuition is due the FIRST DAY of the month. Statements are emailed to customers. It is recommended and encouraged that tuition is processed through the Electronic Funds Checking Transfer System. Our EFT system is 100% safe and confidential. Customers enrolled in EFT have the added benefit of charging pro shop items and other fees to their account. Westside Academy also accepts checks and cash. Credit & Debit cards are not accepted. 

Recital and Mini Olympic Fees

On November 1st, a costume fee will be charged to all dance students for each class in which they are enrolled. On March 1st, a Mini Olympics participation fee (includes a uniform and an award) will be charged to all gymnastics students. Fees are non-refundable once processed. Students must be enrolled in their class in order to participate in the year-end events. 

Missed Classes

Students are required to schedule make-up classes through the front office. We do not pro-rate for missed classes, including classes affected by inclement weather.  Make-up classes are subject to availability of space in the class and are to be completed within two months of the missed class. All make-ups are forfeited if the student drops from the program. 

Adding, Dropping or Transferring Classes

The customer is responsible for notifying the office of any changes to their child’s enrollment. All adds, drops, and transfers will be effective at the time of notification. 

NSF Payment

A $35.00 fee will be charged to your account for each transaction that is returned “Insufficient Funds”.

Referral Credit

If you refer a new family to our facility and they register for a class, you can receive a $20.00 credit towards your account.   This is not valid with any other offers or additional coupons.

Additional parking is available in the Tigard Cinema lot.  Please refrain from parking in the Tri-Met lot or you may be towed.

At that time an email will be sent notifying customers of the evening schedule. If Tigard opens 2 hrs late, we will open at 10:30am. There will be no Performing Arts Preschool or Lunch Bunch. For weekend classes, please check your e-mail for timely updates and notifications. You can also call the Academy and check our recorded voice message.
