Mandarin Registration

Given the current climate, we will host registration for our fall Mandarin program in the Summer of 2020.

Please contact the Executive Director at (510) 652-5229 or [email protected] if you have any questions.

Tuition

Tuition for Mandarin in the 2019-2020 school year was $650 per semester.  A $100 registration and materials fee is due annually.

Class Schedule:

All classes have traditionally been held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Piedmont Community Church. In the Spring of 2020 during the pandemic, we continued teaching Mandarin twice per week using a combination of remote and live (Zoom) teaching; we will likely have to start the 2020 school year in a similar manner.

Classes begin in August or September and conclude in May.  All holidays follow the Piedmont Unified School District calendar. The student to teacher ratio will not exceed 13 to 1

Payment Policy

Tuition payments are paid by semester ($650) plus an annual $100 registration fee for each enrolled child. Payment for at least one semester is due at time of registration to ensure your student’s placement in the class.

Refunds

I understand that my payment of semester tuition ($650) and an annual materials fee ($100) secures a place in a PLS Mandarin class for my child for the first semester of the school year.
I understand that the Mandarin program is a year long program made up of two semesters, but we pay by semester. Re-enrollment and tuition payment for semester two will take place in late late fall of 2019.
Should I choose to withdraw my child from the program before August 13, 2020, my full semester tuition will be refunded but the $100 annual materials fee will not be returned.
Should I choose to withdraw my child from the program between August 14 and September 9, 2020, 80% of my semester tuition will be refunded but the $100 annual materials fee will not be returned.
Should I choose to withdraw my child from the program between September 10 – September 24, 2020, 70% of my semester tuition will be refunded but the $100 annual materials fee will not be returned.
There is no refund for semester one after September 25, 2020.
