Our semesters run every Fall, from September through December, and every Winter/Spring, starting in January and continuing through June. From time to time, we offer classes in the Summer as well. If you are looking for one of our usual classes but don’t see it listed here, that means registration for that class has closed for the semester, the class is not scheduled for this semester, or it has been postponed to next semester. Feel free to contact us with inquiries about any classes you’re interested in and we’ll be happy to help you!
