FAQs

Q:

What is the difference between BHEA's Family Membership fee and the Family Enrichment Program Registration fee?  

A:

Family Membership fees are what you pay to be a member family of BHEA for the whole next year: June 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020. This fee is $25 for your family (not each person). To maintain this low price, we do not prorate based on the point in the year at which you join or renew, and it is non-refundable.

Family Enrichment Program Registration fees cover the use of the facility (the host church). These fees also cover miscellaneous costs associated directly with running the Enrichment program. Because this program is completely optional, only members who participate in it have to pay this fee. This fee is $50. This covers your whole family for the entirety of the academic year. We do not prorate this fee. It is $50 whether you take part in one semester or both. It is refundable up to the second day of sessions.  

Q:

Do I need to pay the $50 Enrichment Program Registration fee for each child?

A:

No. Both the BHEA Membership fee and the Enrichment Program Registration fee are per family, no matter the number of children you register.

Q:

Are there any other fees involved with participating in the Enrichment Program?

A:

Yes, you will pay the instructor directly for each session your child takes. Each instructor sets the session fee and may require additional curriculum, books, or other fees (such as for a field trip) to be paid. All of this information will be outlined in the session description. Simply click on the name of the session. 

Q:

How do I pay?  

A:

You can utitlize the PayPal button on each of the Membership Request or Membership Renewal pages to cover the Family Membership Fee of $25. If you don't have a PayPal account, you can log in as a guest and check out with a credit or debit card. 

You will be prompted to pay the Family Enrichment Program Registration Fee of $50 at the end of the Enrichment Program Registration Form. 

Payment for sessions will be made to individual instructors. Please see session descriptions for more information.

Q:

Are all of the preK-8 sessions scheduled on Wednesdays? 

A:

No. Some of our middle school sessions are being offered on Mondays. Like with the high school program, these will extend for 14 weeks instead of the 10 weeks most Wednesday sessions are designed around. 

Q:

What if my child has food allergies? 

A:

If your child has food allergies, please be sure to ask his or her instructor/s about what they may be eating or working with in that particular session. Our Enrichment sessions are held at a church where many other classes are held on Sundays and through the week. There is always the possibility that your child will be exposed to an allergen from a previous class that was held in the same room. Ultimately, you will need to be responsible for the safety of your child.

Q:

Is the church handicap accessible?

A:

Most areas of our current host church are accessible. Additionally, we can sometimes make adjustments in room assignments to accommodate for special needs if we know about them in advance. Please let the Enrichment Team know about your needs as soon as possible at enrichment@bhea.net. BHEA will strive to help your family any way we can.
