Shopping Cart Overview

  • Registration Quick-Start Guide: Step-by-step guide for our registration system (2 pages).
  • New Users: No login required before registering. At the end of the registration process, each parent simply needs to select “I am a new user” to set up credentials for the registration system.
  • Returning Users: If you have already registered this year (2016-17), add courses to your cart, then log in with your credentials. This will add courses to your current invoice.
  • Fee Payment: Due to current system limitations, you must pay first for your courses, and then go back into your invoice and pay the $60 Registration Fee and the $40 Technology Fee.  Fees are billed separately for each student registered (visible on your invoice when you log into your account).

Refund Policy

We are so confident you will enjoy the WTM Academy courses that we offer a 100% course tuition refund policy through June 30th for Summer courses and September 30th for Fall/Full-Year courses. This gives families several weeks to participate in our courses without any risk! You can also transfer between sections of the same course, switch to another level of the course, or move to an entirely different course (space permitting) for no additional fee.

Waitlist Option

If the section you would like to register for is full, simply register for the delayed section (to ensure you have a seat in the course), then email us with a request to be placed on the waitlist for the preferred section. Typically, several seats open for each section between now and the second week of class, so your student will be automatically moved to the section you requested as soon as a seat opens.

Well-Educated Mind Academy (Courses for Adults)

We offer an Independent Learning Module (ILM, self-paced) option for all Courses for Adults. You can watch the recording of the lecture and discussions at your convenience. After purchase, please email us so we can send you instructions to access the course (available within 24-48 hours).
