Official Jr. Civic Classroom & Registration Policies



SPRING SESSION 2022 REFUND POLICY: Civic Theatre continues to follow guidance from the CDC and from our parent organization, the Center for the Performing Arts, regarding COVID-19 protocols. Those policies can be found here:

Understanding that guidance continues to change based on how thevirus is behaving, we have modified our refund policy and will continue to update it, accordingly.

For the Spring Session, a refund may be requested for any class up to the first class date. With our policies and protocols clearly explained, no refunds will be granted after that date.If there is an exposure to COVID-19 in any of our classes, we will evaluate the situation on a case-by-case basis taking into account vaccination status of the individuals in the class and contact tracing.Based on that evaluation, a refund may or may not be issued but a thorough consideration of the specific circumstances will inform thatdecision.

Based on our standard refund policy, all refund requests that are nothealth-related must be made two weeks prior to the first class. Cancellations up to two weeks prior to the start of the workshop will be refunded 50%. No refunds will be made after this time. If Civic Theatre cancels a class due to insufficient enrollment, the entire class will be fully refunded. Participants will not receive refunds or prorated fees for partially attended classes.


There is a $25 charge for each check returned from the bank for any reason.


Jr. Civic employs an optional, standard evaluation procedure at the end of each session. Students will be guided, via a carefully designed rubric, as to how to continue to grow and learn through the Jr. Civic curriculum. Placement in any class is at the discretion of the instructor and the Director of Education. All students will receive a “mid-session” evaluation.
