Community Education

  • The Community Education program is offered to all families within the WNY area. There is no residency requirement to attend a Community Education program. All program information is included on this webpage. Online registration is required for all registrations.

    SURVEY
    Currently the Amherst Central School District's Community Education program offers sports camps for students in grades 1 - 12. We would like to gauge interest from the community regarding future programming for adults. We have developed an Amherst CSD Community Education Interest Survey to gather feedback.

    REFUND POLICY
    A refund request must be made at least two business days prior to the start of the class to receive a refund and enrollment within that class/course will be canceled. The amount refunded is equal to the cost of initial registration for that individual class/course minus a $10 payment/processing fee.

    No refunds will be given after the first session of a class. Exceptions to this policy can be made related to unforeseen circumstances (i.e., injury). Pro-rated refunds may be issued in cases of verifiable illness or injury (doctor’s note required) that prevents further participation in a course.

    If the student has signed up for a class/course by mistake, misunderstood the course's description prior to registration, had a schedule change, failed to attend one or more sessions of that class/course, a refund will not be issued after the start date of class. It is the students' responsibility to clarify any misunderstanding regarding course content, program dates/times, transportation to and from class, and the location of class prior to registration.

    If a refund request is approved, students will receive a refund via check or digital transaction. The Community Education Liaison will provide additional details to the student before the refund is finalized.

    Any exceptions to the refund policy are left to the discretion of the Community Education Liaison and are applicable to any situations not listed above.

    If a course is cancelled by the Community Education office, each student will be entitled to a full refund.

    WEATHER / EMERGENCY CLASS CANCELLATION

    Community Education activities will be cancelled when regular school day sessions are cancelled due to holidays, inclement weather, or other emergencies. We will do our best to reschedule classes due to weather-related cancellations, but only as space and time allows. No refunds will be made for cancelled classes.
