Can you make an age exception?

Can you make an age exception?

Our courses are divided into specific age groups to ensure students receive the best, most tailored tech education experience possible. We carefully consider the age range for each course as we update our course curriculum each season. Age requirements are based on a number of factors, including the complexity of the software used, feedback from students and parents, and our many years of teaching experience.

With this in mind, we may consider age exceptions in special circumstances. 

Our age policy is that students must turn the minimum age listed for the course by December 31 of the calendar year. Some courses may have stricter age policies.
