For summer programs: Brookline SmartSummers for Children, there is a $10 non-refundable registration fee charged once (per child) for SmartSummers programs. Full tuition is required at the time of registration. Because space is limited in our children’s SmartPrograms, transfers are only available under the discretion of the director. If you withdraw your child with a refund, a $25 processing fee will apply. If you elect to receive a course credit, the $25 processing fee will be waived. No refunds or credits will be granted after June 1.

If you elect to receive a course credit, the $25 processing fee will be waived. Credits are non-refundable and do not expire. The credit amount will be noted under your child’s name in our records. The $10 registration fee is non-refundable.No refunds or credits will be within 10 business days of the start date.
Because space is limited in our children’s SmartPrograms, transfers are only available under the discretion of the director, and a $25 transfer fee will be charged for each change in registration.
If the program you wish to register your child for is filled, he/she will be placed on a waitlist. Our office will be in contact if space becomes available. Please note: your child is not officially enrolled if he or she is on a waitlist. During February and April Vacation programs, your child will not be registered for any classes unless the minimum number of classes required to complete a day’s schedule is met.
We want to ensure our program is a safe and positive place to be for everyone. We have a “Zero Tolerance” policy for physical violence, bullying/verbal harassment, theft or destruction of property. Parents of students who violate this policy will be called and asked to provide an immediate pick-up.
A limited number of scholarships are available on a case-by-case basis. Please call Brookline Adult & Community Education, 617-730-2700 ext. 0, for an application.
