Session Model Information:
Our classes meet once a week for six weeks. Wise Fool is moving toward a session registration model. That means you will be bulk enrolled for all 6 classes before the session starts. Our classes need a minimum of four students enrolled for the full session (all 6 classes) to remain active on our schedule. Classes that reach the 4-student enrollment minimum will then be able to offer drop-ins, meaning you can join and pay on a class-to-class basis. We highly encourage you to enroll ahead of time- it saves you money and helps our coaches and community!

Purple: https://wisefool.pike13.com/pack_products/730563 Green: https://wisefool.pike13.com/pack_products/428338 3. Either enroll yourself in each individual class in the session through the calendar or Email email@example.com the name and time of the classes you want to enroll in and our Adult Programs Coordinator will bulk enroll you. Refund model: 100% refund prior to first week of class, 50% refund during first week of class, and no refunds or credit after the first week of classes. If there is a class cancellation due to COVID, you will either be offered a make-up class or offered a refund.
Why a session model:
Session models guarantee work for our coaches! The drop-in model means our coaches have to prepare a class and show up to the studio even if nobody is enrolled. This is a drain on resources for our coaches and community. Knowing we have active and ongoing enrollment keeps our classes robust and healthy. Session models allow us to be more equitable! By knowing ahead of time about enrollment in a class, the session model allows us to distribute scholarships to students while ensuring the sustainability of the organization. Session models encourage community! Learning new skills is both exciting and scary. Knowing you will be returning to class with a group of familiar faces who are just as excited (and maybe a little scared) as you helps develop meaningful bonds through the experience. Session models save you money! you experience a class, we know you’ll want to come back! Most students attend at least 4 out of the 6 classes in a session. Paying the drop-in rate for each individual class is more expensive than bulk enrollment.
As we move away from a sense of urgency as an organization, the session model allows us to be more forward thinking and less reactive.
