Who Can Enroll?

Anyone can enroll in our classes at the same low tuition. We welcome residents of Arlington and non-residents. Our goal is to provide safe, accessible, and comfortable classes for students of all races, ages, genders, sexual orientations, gender identities, religions, abilities, statuses, and every other category protected by federal or state law.

Adult classes are open to ages 18+. Parents may not bring minor children to adult classes.

ACE does not allow unregistered students to observe, drop-in, or try out our classes.

How to Register

Registrations must be completed online at Arlington.CE.Eleyo.com. If you have any questions, please call 781-316-3568 or email CommunityEd@arlington.k12.ma.us.

Registrations for in-person and online classes are per person unless otherwise noted.

You are officially enrolled as soon as your payment is processed. An email address is required for course confirmation and updates.

Please register early! Many classes fill fast and low enrolled classes are cancelled.

Email/Text Communications

ACE will use the email address that you provide on your registration profile as our primary means of communicating with you. If you have a mobile phone, please add that to your profile and allow text messaging. We only text students with important, last-minute communications such as weather/teacher absences, and not for marketing purposes.

Redeeming Credits

If you have an existing course credit with ACE, please register and pay in full for your classes, then email us within 24 hours with the subject line ACE credit. We will refund you for the amount of the ACE credit. Note that your credit balance will not appear in your online dashboard. If you have any questions about your credit, please contact us.

Class Details

Class times and locations will be included in an automated Course Reminder email that is sent 48 hours before your class. If you can’t find it, search your email for a message from Arlington@CE.Eleyo.com. You can also find this information in your online ACE account. Go to your Dashboard to view your current classes, which you will find under Explore All Programs.

For in-person evening classes, ACE staff will be onsite to direct you to your classroom.

Please be on time for your class to ensure minimal disruption to the instructor and fellow students. In certain cases latecomers may be turned away and a refund will not be granted.

Adult classes are for 18+. Parents may not bring minor children to adult classes.

If your class requires you to purchase supplies, see Materials Lists.


If the class you want is full, sign up for the waitlist. There is no charge and we often get last-minute changes or add sections when possible. We will contact you if a spot becomes available.


Email withdrawal requests during our business hours (M–F, 9 am–4 pm) to CommunityEd@arlington.k12.ma.us. Requests that come outside of those hours will be considered on the following day. Credits may be used within two years by anyone in your family. There are no credits or refunds for student absences and/or late arrivals.

  • 10 business days before class starts: refund less 10%
  • 5 business days before class starts: credit less 20%
  • Fewer than 5 business days before class starts: no refunds or credits

*NOTE: SummerFun and VacationFun have separate cancellation/withdrawal policies.


ACE reserves the right to cancel classes due to low enrollment or other considerations. If we cancel your class, you will receive a full refund to your original form of payment.

If the Arlington Public Schools are closed during the day due to holidays, school vacations, or inclement weather, ACE classes will not be held. If school is in session and weather becomes inclement during the day, cancellations will be posted on our website, emailed, and texted (please opt in for text).

If your class is cancelled due to weather, we will make every effort to reschedule a make-up date. We cannot offer refunds or credits for weather-related changes. Online classes will typically run in inclement weather.

*NOTE: SummerFun and VacationFun have separate cancellation/withdrawal policies.
