How to Register
We recommend (and prefer) that all families register through our online registration system (Active), which includes waivers and detailed information that is required for program participation. If you need to register by phone, you will need to complete and return this paperwork before the program start date. In order to register by phone, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a phone registration appointment.
Class & Tuition Selection
- In Active, select the Tuition Tier at which you would like to register for the class, and then select “Add to Cart.”
- Continue to select Tuition Tiers and “Add to Cart” for all classes for which you are registering. In one cart, you can process registrations for several classes and/or children in the same transaction.
- Once all classes are in your cart, select “Continue” in your Shopping Cart (which is to the far right of your screen).
Account Login & Registration Forms
- Enter your email address. If you already have an Active account with BAX from a School Breaks Registration or previous BAX Virtual Class, please use the same email address.

- You will then be prompted to enter your account password, or set up an account password if you are creating a new account.
- For each class, you will be prompted to select the participant from a dropdown menu. If the name of the child you wish to register is not listed, select “Register a New Person” and enter their name, date of birth, and grade for the 2020/2021 School Year.
- For each individual child, you will then be prompted to complete a registration form which includes demographic information and a photo/media release form. Active will save your answers to these questions and for subsequent registrations, you will be prompted to review the information to see if anything needs to be updated.
- Next, you will fill out contact information for at least one parent/guardian.
- You will then be prompted to review and sign off on three waivers: an Active Agreement and Waiver, a BAX General Release Form and Waiver, and BAX’s Payment & Refund Policies.
Review Cart & Checkout

- You will then receive an email confirmation and receipt via email.
Youth Class Policies
Youth Classes - Tiered Tuition
BAX is committed to offering high-quality and accessible arts programs for all. As such, each term’s tuition is priced at three tiers, which includes sliding scale tuition of up to approx. 40% subsidy so that each family can assess the tuition price that works best for their household. This is based on an honor system of your-expressed-need (we do not require financial documentation). By paying what you are able, you help us better meet the needs of other families. Registration is taken on a first come, first serve basis, and half of the tuition must be received to secure a spot.

Active Processing Fee: Registrations through Active, our online registration system, include a non-refundable per registration processing fee of $2.50 (for registrations less than $125) or $5.95 (for registrations $125 and above). Credit Card processing fees are paid by BAX and we encourage you to use e-checks when possible as they incur lower fees.

All Installment plans available online require a credit card to be enrolled in auto-billing through Active, and tuition must be paid in full before the start of each program week.
On or before Monday, May 31, 2021 cancellations will be accepted minus a flat $50 cancellation fee. In the event that the customer decides to cancel a session beginning on Tuesday, June 1, 2021 and until two weeks prior to the start of that session, 50% of tuition will be forfeited as a cancellation fee. Cancellations by the customer on or after two weeks prior to the start of the session are not eligible for a refund or credit.
Should the program be cancelled by BAX due to COVID-19 complications, all tuition paid will be converted to a credit which can be redeemed for any future BAX program.
There is a $25/per week charge for switching one week for another, provided BAX receives at least two weeks notice and space is available. With less than two weeks notice, changes will be treated as a cancellation (see above).
