Course Options

There are a range of course formats to choose from:

Online (1-2 hours/day)
  • Online classes via Zoom are available individually or in small groups. Group classes are held Monday through Friday 7:00AM – 7:00PM CST and Saturday 7:00AM – 12:00PM CST, and private classes are scheduled based on your availability and your teacher's availability. A great option for those who can't travel (or can't travel yet)!
Small group class (2-4 hours/day)
  • Small group classes have a maximum of 8 students and usually less. Classes take place Monday - Friday for a total of 10-20 hours/week. Your group assignment will be determined by a brief placement exam Monday morning.
Private class (2-4 hours/day)
  • Private lessons are more intensive and good if you have specific learning goals. Your instructor will work with you on your target areas for improvement.
6-hour combination of classes
  • This option includes 4 hours of group classes plus 2 hours of private classes each day for a total of 30 hours/week. You’ll be able to connect with other students in group classes while being able to focus on more specific learning goals during private classes.

Note regarding group classes: In the unlikely event that you are the only student at your level, any two hours of group lessons will be replaced with one hour of private lessons. This is rare.
