Policies

Who Can Enroll?

Anyone can enroll in our classes at the same low tuition. We welcome residents of Arlington and non-residents. Adult classes are open to ages 18+. 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.

How to Register

Registrations must be completed online. Go to Arlington.CE.Eleyo.com and follow the directions to register. 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 canceled.

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

For all in-person classes, please check our website for our regularly updated COVID safety precautions.

Classes are at a variety of locations, as well as online. Locations are listed under each class description along with dates, times, and prices.

Class times and locations will be included in an automated Course Reminder email that is sent 24 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.

Online classes will be held on Zoom. In person classes will take place at Gibbs School and other locations around town. See addresses and maps here.

Waitlists

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.

Withdrawals

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

  • Before 10 business days (Monday–Friday): you will receive a refund less 10%
  • Before 5 business days (Monday–Friday): you will receive a credit less 10%
  • Less than 5 business days (Monday–Friday): no refunds or credits.

Cancellations

*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 holiday, 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 (to those who opt in).

If your class is cancelled, we will notify you of make up dates as soon as possible. We cannot offer refunds for weather-related date changes. Online classes will typically run in inclement weather.

Tuition Assistance

Partial tuition assistance is available for many youth classes for APS students who receive free or reduced lunch. Please email us with a copy of your free-lunch form before registering.

Etcetera

ACE reserves the right to change instructors if necessary and correct prices, times, or dates due to typographical errors in our catalog or website.
