Terms and Conditions
Child Safety and Privacy
We need your consent to collect personal information about your child in order to enroll your child in Aim Academy classes. You provide this consent by agreeing to our Terms and Conditions at checkout. We do not sell or share this information with any third-party providers. The information is securely stored in our Student Information System and is for internal use only.
A full statement about how we protect your child’s safety and privacy in our classes is here.
By agreeing to our terms and conditions, parents agree that they are fully responsible for monitoring their child’s behavior online and in our classes. Parents are assisted in this responsibility by accepting the invitation to be an observer of their child’s student account in Canvas. Parents should monitor their child’s activity in his/her classes regularly.
Please read the course description, confirm the class schedule (all times are Eastern), and get all your questions answered before registering. If there is a placement test or course application, please use that to help you determine whether or not your child is ready for the difficulties of the course. Thanks! (When a class is not a good fit for your family, it is also a disappointment for the teacher, too.)
Request a course change/withdrawal/refund using THIS FORM.
Registration fees are nonrefundable. Refunds are issued through the original payment method unless otherwise specified by you.
For full year classes paid in full, the following refund policies apply:
- We issue a 80% refund if you withdraw from the course prior to the third Monday of August.
- We issue an 60% refund if you withdraw from the course prior to Week 7. ( First week of October)
- No refunds are issued after Oct. 1.
For mini-courses and one semester courses paid in full:
- 80% refund if you withdraw prior to the first Monday of the first week of the course.
- 60% if you withdraw prior to 3rd week of the course.
- No refunds issued after 1st Monday of Week 3.
For students on a payment plan, the following refund policies apply:
- We will issue a refund, less 20% of the full scheduled payment, if you withdraw prior to the third Monday in August. (For example, if full payment would have been $600, we return what you have paid, less $120).
- We will issue a refund, less 40% of full scheduled payment, if you withdraw prior to Week 7. (no refunds after October 1)
- The same policies apply to mini-courses and semester courses if you withdraw prior to the 3rd week of the course. No refunds after the 1st Monday of Week 3.
- By selecting a payment plan, you agree to complete payment even if your child withdraws or stops participating in the class after the refund period has passed.
Credit Option: You may elect to receive 80% credit for the amount paid, excluding technology fee, toward a future AAO course. The credit option is only available up to the deadlines for 60% refund (prior to week 7 of full year course; prior to week 3 of semester/mini-courses.)
Payment plans are provided as a courtesy to our families at $10/mo per course. By selecting a payment plan, you agree to complete payment for the course, even if your student drops or fails to complete the course after the refund period has passed (week 6 for full year classes). See the full refund policy here.
Customers may pay off their balance at any time by request. The $10/mo fee is then deducted for the remaining months.
Above all, we never sell or share your information with anyone outside of our organization.
