Serendipity

Winter 2019 Dates
January 7–March 7

The Serendipity Program is available Mondays–Thursdays to Lower School girls in Groups I–IV. Serendipity courses are taught by Greenwich Academy teachers, associate teachers, and outside instructors. All classes run for an hour, from 3:15-4:15 PM. Please pick up your children promptly. Since children who take the bus must leave at 3:45 PM, parents must arrange for alternate transportation on Serendipity days.

REGISTRATION PROCEDURES AND GENERAL INFORMATION

1) All charges will be billed to your student billing account.

2) If there are classes for which there are more registrations than we have places, we hold a LOTTERY to decide which children may attend. If your child is placed on the waitlist for a class, she will have priority the next time the class is offered.

3) Your daughter may register for more than one class. Please be sure that the class is offered to her grade level.

4) We reserve the right to modify classes or change faculty assignments when necessary. Classes with insufficient enrollment will be canceled.

5) There are NO Serendipity classes on half-days or holidays.

6) If your daughter drops out of a Serendipity class after the first week and her spot cannot be filled, you will be charged for the entire session.

Contact Leesa Singleton for registration information.
