How does the Work-Study program work?
Our Work Study program is for adults who have a strong desire to take a workshop but who may not have the opportunity to take our classes without financial assistance. Work study students receive credit to be applied towards the tuition of their workshop. For every 1.5 hours worked, one hour credit will be applied towards workshop tuition. Work study awards are based on need as well as prior work experience.
Can my child/teen take an adult workshop?
Castle Hill encourages kids/teens to take classes! Depending on the instructor and the skill level of the workshop, we can determine if an adult level course will be a good fit for your young student. It's best to call ahead if you have any doubts about signing your child up for a workshop. We also offer a number of workshops just for kids throughout the summer and even in the off season too!
