We accept registrations via phone or website on a first-come first-served basis. If a program is full, we will advise you on other options, and on rare occasions we maintain a short waiting list.
Once we have received your online application or inquiry, we will contact you via telephone or email. We may ask you a few questions to confirm that the program is appropriate for you. If you applied online, you will receive an email with a link to pay with a credit card. Once we have received your payment, we will email you an official acceptance message. If you have financial concerns about paying for Kroka, please click here for information about Kroka’s sliding scale tuition and scholarship programs.
A financial deposit is required in order to reserve your place in the program. Mailing us a check saves on our bank fees (thank you!), but we are happy to accept your credit card as well. If you applied online, we will email you payment instructions as soon as we confirm eligibility and placement within a program.
Once you have been accepted into the program please download and complete the paperwork packet (or medical form for returning students). Note that if you are applying after MAY 1st, you must submit paperwork and begin preparation immediately!
A packing list will be emailed to you as soon as it is ready. Until then, please read our general packing guidelines here.
Your specific program teacher will call your household to introduce themselves and answer any last-minute questions. You should expect this call 3-5 days prior to the program start.
At last: Coming to Kroka!
An email with specific instructions for the program start day logistics will be sent to you with your packing list as well as 5-6 days prior to your program.
ADMISSIONS:If a program is full, we will try to work with you to suggest an alternative, and we sometimes do maintain a waiting list. In some cases if we cannot offer you a position we may offer you an early admission into a subsequent program. On rare occasions we reserve the right to give preference to some students over others based upon the needs of the group – for example to ensure the right combination of age, gender, and ability for a successful student community.
CANCELLATION POLICY: We will refund full tuition (less a $100 administrative fee) for any cancellations that occur prior to May 1st. As of May 1st, all tuition payments are non-refundable. In some cases (such as cancellation due to unexpected injury) tuition may be credited toward the following year.
REFUNDS: There are no refunds issued for students dismissed from the program due to illness or disciplinary reasons, or for students who choose to withdraw early from the program already in session. If a student must leave due to an injury incurred while on the program, a prorated portion of the tuition will be refunded.
