Classroom Environment

Summer camps at AIE are held in a studio-style classroom environment. This means that students will be engaging in hands-on, exploratory, project-oriented activities for the majority of the time they are in the classroom. Minimal lectures will be given; instructors are otherwise present in the classroom to give individualized attention, applied assistance, and to act as a resource for the students. We provide student versions of industry-standard software and students are encouraged to dive right in and explore the software above and beyond what is included in lecture.

Please ensure that this environment will be a positive and healthy one in which your student has the potential to succeed. We are unable to grant refunds for students who do not participate in camp activities or discover that their learning style does not mesh with the classroom environment. We will strive to provide each and every student with individual attention as much as possible, but we do encourage students to develop their skills in self-starting and time management. We believe this is an essential part of blending traditional classroom-style learning with studio-style learning.

Seattle Refund Policy

The full tuition is due at the time of registration. A non-refundable registration fee of $75 is included in the tuition of each week. If you cancel your registration up to 14 days before the start of camp, we will refund the tuition minus the $75 registration fee.

Due to high demand for our camps, we are unable to grant any refunds within 14 days of camp starting. Campers who must leave during the week due to illness will receive a pro-rated refund as long as appropriate verification is provided. Campers asked to leave camp during the week due to misbehavior or other violation of camp rules will not receive a refund.
