HKA Hours, Costs & Billing

We are excited to have your child involved in our year long programs. To make tuition payments as easy as possible, we have created a simple and affordable payment plan. The cost for each class is divided into a monthly tuition and is spread out all year including show months. There are 6 payments per each semester. There are two semesters per year at HKA. For any questions you may have, please contact the billing department.

Registration & Billing

Method of Payment: HKA has an easy, online payment system. You create a Log-In Account entering the parent's information and then add each child individually into your account. (Note: You can change your personal information anytime by logging into your account and editing it.) Then register your child for the classes you would like them to be enrolled in. You will then proceed to check out. We accept VISA, MasterCard and Discover. Your card will be billed automatically once a month for tuition. For accounting purposes, we do not accept checks, cash or money orders.

Cancellations and Refunds: All HKA students are under contract and are obligated to participate until the end of their contract. Each student is part of a cast that has been working together on a show. If a student withdraws, this has a negative impact upon the other cast members and directors, as well as sending the wrong message to the students. If a student withdraws early, they are responsible to pay for the entire semester.

Credits: All tuition is paid monthly. We do not pro-rate, nor give partial credit. Tuition, Production Fees and Material fees are non-refundable.

Withdrawal: If a student must withdraw, please contact Ms. Barbara at barb.hollywoodkids@hotmail.com to begin the withdrawal process. There must be a valid reason for withdrawal. Partial monthly attendance will not be pro-rated. Additionally, students who withdraw early will forfeit their positions in our classes and may be placed on a waiting list upon their return depending upon class availability. Any students who withdraw early will not receive a refund.

Declined Credit Card Service Fee: For all credit or debit cards that decline after the 2nd attempt for payment for tuition or production fees, there will be a $25 Decline Service Fee charged to your account.

Defaulting of payments: All students' accounts must be current. If for any reason payments must be delayed, Ms. Barbara must be contacted before the payment is scheduled to be charged. This will allow each student to continue in the program without any interruptions in their studies. Students whose accounts are not current will not be able to continue their participation in HKA. Purposeful delinquency of payments can result in the permanent termination of a student's participation in HKA.

Late Pick Up Fee: Children can feel insecure and abandoned if parents are habitually tardy in picking them up. Additionally, teachers personal time is affected. To avoid this all students must be picked up on time from their classes. A late fee can and will be assessed after the first 10 minutes except in emergencies. If a student is not picked up within the first 10 minutes then the parent/guardian will be charged a $15.00 late fee. Each minute after that the parent/guardian will be charged up to $2.00 per minute. Habitual tardiness (3 or more) may result in the removal of your students from our programs. Your cooperation in the safety and security of your children is greatly appreciated.
