In-Person Classes

We plan to resume Before & After School classes when schools open.

FLY In-Person Classes

Where are classes held?

Classes are held at your student’s school, making it convenient for student pick-up and drop-off. Session schedules and exact room locations within the schools are finalized before classes begin. If there are any changes during the school year (e.g., room location, time, etc.), FLY will contact families via email.

What is a typical FLY Class: schedule, length of session, class time and frequency?

FLY class sessions begin in mid-October and continue until the following Spring. Depending on school availability, school calendar and family preferences, classes are offered before and/or after school and will fall into one of the offered schedules below:

  • Thirty-six, 40-minute classes meeting twice per week
  • Twenty-three, 60-minute classes meeting once per week
  • Eighteen, 80-minute classes meeting once per week

All sessions follow the school calendar (no classes on non-school days, holidays, breaks, etc.). FLY sends out the class calendar before classes begin in October. Classes that are cancelled due to school closures or teacher absences are made up at the end of the session. In the unlikely event a school changes the availability of a classroom, FLY will make every attempt to make up the class. Updated calendars are sent to families whenever a change is made to the schedule. When in doubt, refer to your most recent calendar or contact us for the most current copy.

Note: FLY can also work with schools individually to implement our program into a regular school-day schedule. Prices and registration process may vary with this option. Contact us if your school would like to know more about our tailored FLY program.

What age group are FLY classes? Can my Kindergartner join?

Our classes provide foreign language education to elementary and middle school students. Any student in grade 1 or higher can be registered for a FLY class.

Kindergartners are accepted into a FLY class if there is room still available after registration closes or if there is enough interest at a school for a Kindergarten-only class. Otherwise, kindergarten students are placed on a wait list after parents complete the registration/tuition process. Kindergartners may be pre-registered with the $25 pre-registration fee, but tuition must be paid in full between August 15- 31st to be considered for placement in a class.

Kindergartners may attend a standard FLY class if ALL the following conditions are met:

  • There is room available in the class after registration closes on September 30th.
  • The Kindergarten student is able to read and write simple sentences, such as, “The cat jumped on the couch.”.
  • The class is a “good fit” for your student. (See FLY’s “good fit” clause)

How many students are in a FLY Class?

FLY is proud to offer small class sizes. Classes are typically made up of 10 students of various ages, levels and grades.

Can I register my student at a school they do not attend?

We allow students who are not attending the school where a FLY class is offered to attend if all the following conditions* are met:

  • There is room available in the class after registration closes on September 30th.
  • The student is able to read and write simple sentences, such as, “The cat jumped on the couch.”.
  • The student has transportation to and from each FLY class.
  • The class is a “good fit” for your student. (see FLY’s “good fit” clause)
  • Tuition is paid in full
*Students outside of the hosting school are placed on a wait list for the class until the first week of October. At that time, if space becomes available and the class is a “good fit” for the student, the student is added to the class and the family is notified. If the class fills and/or not a “good fit” for the student, payment is refunded in full and the student is not added to the class.

Do we have to commit to a whole session?

Due to our low tuition rates and small class sizes, we require a commitment for the full FLY session, mid-October to Spring. In our experience, students retain more of the language if they attend classes over the full session. Please review our refund policy for more details about withdrawing a student prior to the session ending.

Can my student bring a snack to class?

Students may bring their own snack to class and eat it quickly and quietly during the first few minutes of class time. Please try and provide a nourishing snack and avoid snacks that contain common allergens, such as nuts. FLY does not provide snacks for the students. Please inform FLY if your student has a food allergy, see our policy.

Are shorter sessions offered?

Studies have shown that consistently spacing a student’s learning over time can help increase long term retention. Over the 20+ years FLY has been teaching foreign languages, we have seen these results be true. Therefore, we offer our FLY sessions from mid-October to Spring; classes end between late March and early June, in accordance with their schedules.

What are Presentation Days?

Each class holds two Presentation Days during a regularly scheduled class. We invite all families, friends and other guests, to attend a Presentation Day, where students will have a chance to show off what they have learned. The first Presentation is usually before (or shortly after) winter break and the Final Presentation is typically held toward the end of the session. Please check with your student’s FLY teacher or contact FLY for Presentation dates and times.
