Question: My child wants to participate in Hoogland Education. Are there any requirements to enrolling into one of these programs?
Answer: Yes! If a student enrolls in the Hoogland Education as a Kid or Teen, they are required to take at least one weekday educational course during the academic year.
Question: What is a tech week?
Answer: Tech week is the Monday through Thursday evening leading up to the opening of one of the Hoogland Education shows. During these nights, we are integrating the scenery, costumes, lights, sound, and makeup into the production. These nights are used to make sure each child is safe onstage and the production is ready to present to the public. These rehearsals are mandatory.
Question: Can I watch rehearsals?
Answer: We conduct closed rehearsals. This allows students to focus fully on the lesson for the day and to help them build connections with their fellow students. We have various days where parents are invited to view skits and volunteer in show productions.

Answer: All students are welcome to join Hoogland Education! From beginner to advanced, we specialize the program to build the talents and strengths of all students.
Question: What is your refund policy?
Answer: Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds on classes.
