We have designed a family choice academic education support and enrichment program that meets the many family needs that have been expressed by our families over the last 4 years. 


We have set up "Covid19-compliant"  Predominantly Outdoor, learning stations, and have small numbers of participants.

Our ENRICHMENT SESSIONS will include ART, MUSIC LESSONS, CHOIR, BANDS, MUSIC EDITING, FILM MAKING and VIDEO EDITING, ACTING and more! We offer SPECIAL GUEST Instructors and our ZOOM AROUND THE WORLD with interesting people and professions!

We pride ourselves with our focus on enriching and tutoring K-12. We will have block schedules available all day. The first sessions are focused on Academics and afternoons are focused on Enrichment in the Arts. We will end with Special Sessions in Entrepreneurship and Social Enterprise.

D’Arezzo Creative Education Youth are honored to have played a small part in the new song by Tay Da Prince and John Legend. The message to Love One Another is something we all need. Our Youth have joined to help raise funds for children across the USA and soon will be raising funds for local youth education programs and conservation projects!

D’Arezzo Creative Education Program Course Policy

Discounts, and Cancellation Information, Refund Policy and REGISTRATION POLICIES:


Each family agrees to the following policies upon registering their child:

Registration is on a first-received, first-enrolled basis until the maximum Station size is reached.  If a Session is cancelled, we will notify you at least 24 hours prior to the start of Session. Refund eligibility is not based upon your reason for being unable to attend a Session, even if that reason is beyond your control. It is based solely upon the timing of your refund request, as follows:

• If we receive your request at least one month (30 days) prior to the first day of the Session, you will receive a full refund, less a 20% cancellation fee. We do NOT give full refunds due to the fact that we incur fees at the time of your registration. Cancellation fees cover these costs when you cancel. 

• If we receive your request less than one month (29 days or less) prior to the first day of the upcoming month, you are not eligible for a refund; however, a Session credit less a 15% cancellation fee will be offered for future Courses.  The participant will have until the end of the same academic year to redeem this credit, after which time it will be considered void. This policy also applies to Payment Plan participants.

• If we receive your request once the Month has begun, there are no refunds and you will be responsible for any remaining Session fees that are unpaid. 

• All Sessions require advance enrollment, payment, deposit or proof a voucher/certificate has been ordered in order to be guaranteed a spot in the Session. You will receive a confirmation email after your registration has been completed.
