ENRICHMENT PROGRAM

The Genesee Hill Enrichment Program provides students access to a diverse range of quality after school educational and recreational opportunities. Enrollment is open to all Genesee Hill students regardless of race, gender, abilities, religion or finances.  Scholarships and/or alternate payment schedules are available by request.  Scholarship requests should be submitted before registration opens to receive a payment code for enrollment. Please contact the Enrichment Coordinator to request a scholarship.

Even though the school campus is closed, your PTA is committed to continue offering after school enrichment classes (online only) this year. With concerns about too much screen time in mind, we’ve carefully curated a selection of virtual enrichment activities that are designed to excite, actively engage and delight your student. New classes this session include: Dungeons & Dragons, Roblox, Machine Sewing, Hamilton, Rock Guitar, and not just 1 but 2 different Minecraft classes (plus a Minecraft themed class). Old favorites including Jump Rope, Chess, Tae Kwon Do, Drawing & Painting, Lego Engineering, Robotics and more, will return in a re-imagined online format that provides your student with everything they need to take enrichment classes directly from home!

By choosing to enroll in a class through the GH Enrichment Program, you will be supporting our dedicated vendors, many of who are local, small businesses. Plus a portion of each tuition goes to the PTA’s scholarship fund for families who request financial assistance to help pay for enrichment classes.

ENROLLMENT

Enrollment takes place online only. If you do not have online access, please contact the Enrichment Coordinator to arrange an alternate method to register your student(s).

Enrollment is done via Homeroom – an online after school enrichment portal where you can enroll, purchase and manage all your student(s) classes in one convenient location.   If you already have a Homeroom account, all you have to do is login to book classes.  If you do not have an account, you’ll only have to sign up once and your student(s) profile will be saved for future sessions.  Note: Enrichment course offerings can be viewed on the Homeroom site in advance, however, classes cannot be added to your cart until enrollment goes live at on September 22nd at 7 PM.

**IMPORTANT REMINDER**: You will need to login first to purchase classes. Once you login, the “Add to Cart” button will be visible, however, you will not be able to add any classes until enrollment opens.  So go ahead and login early but please be patient and wait until 7 PM to click on “Add” button. Please do not refresh the page as this will actually slow down your user experience.

ENHANCED USER INTERFACE: Homeroom has added several new features and more user friendly look to the main booking page. Parents can now filter courses by Status and Vendor in addition to Day and Grade. Plus, the current season’s courses are available to view real-time, even before enrollment opens.

WAITLIST: Classes will automatically close once capacity is reached.  If a class is in another person’s cart, you will be prompted to join the waitlist in order to be automatically added to the class if a spot becomes available.  If the class is full, select the “Join Waitlist” button to add your student(s) to the waitlist. You will be notified by email if a spot becomes available and have 24 hours to confirm whether or not you want to enroll in the class.

DISMISSAL OPTION:  During check out, you must assign a student to each class and select a Dismissal Option before you can “Confirm and Pay.” For the Fall 2020 session, please select the “Online Class” dismissal option.

SCHOLARSHIPS:  To request a scholarship, please please contact the Enrichment Coordinator before registering to receive a code that will allow you to enroll your student(s) for a class without payment. 

PAYMENT POLICY:  Starting this year, payment is required at the time of registration in order to book courses. Payment is accepted by debit or credit card only. If you wish to to pay by Cash or Check, or need an alternate payment schedule, please contact the Enrichment Coordinator before enrolling to receive a code that will allow you to enroll your student(s) for classes, and make payment later directly to the vendor.

CANCELLATION POLICY: If you cancel registration 48 hours before the season begins, you may receive a full refund (minus the registration fee). If you cancel within the 48 hours, or during the season, there will be no guarantee of refund.

Handy Tips on Booking Classes with Homeroom

  • I highly recommend that you create a Homeroom account and enter your student(s) profile and payment information before enrollment opens. Once enrollment goes live, all you have to do is add the classes you want to your cart and check out!
  • Login to your Homeroom account prior to enrollment. You can still view classes regardless of whether or not you are logged in, however, to be able to book classes you  will need to login first. Once you login, the “Add to Cart” button will be visible, however, you will not be able to add any classes until enrollment opens.  Please be patient and wait until 7 PM to click on the “Add” button. NOTE: Please do not refresh the page as this may impact your user experience.
  • While you should enroll early for best class selection, there is no need to panic or rush because once a class is added to your Cart, it’s yours for 25 minutes! This should allow plenty of time for you to select all the classes you want and check out within the 25 minute window.
  • Due to the large number of classes being offered, I recommend using a computer  to enroll as it may be difficult to easily view all the class options on your phone.  NOTE: While Homeroom supports all internet browsers, it is optimized for use on Chrome and Firefox.
  • If you have questions or need help at any time, please contact Homeroom Support directly.  I highly encourage using the Chatbox (located in the lower right hand corner of your screen) as their team will be closely monitoring enrollment and can assist you live.  They are very responsive to Chat and usually respond within minutes! For less time-sensitive requests, you can send them an e-mail at hello@homeroom.com
