LOCATIONS OF CLASSES: Classes are held at either Morris Hills High School, The Academy at Morris Hills High School, Morris Knolls High School or offsite. Check individual course listings for location and room assignments.
ELIGIBILITY: Any adult, resident or non-resident, is eligible for enrollment. High school students under the age of 18 may enroll in courses when accompanied by an enrolled adult with permission from the Director of Adult Education. Students may enroll independently in programs created for children (Behind-the-Wheel, science workshops, etc.).
REGISTRATION: We accept Visa, MasterCard, checks or cash. Please note that no confirmations will be sent except for trips, so please mark your calendar. You will be notified only if a class is filled or cancelled.
WITHDRAWALS/REFUNDS: Withdrawals must be made 5 business days before the start of a course or before the cancellation deadline of trips or culinary courses in order to receive a refund. There is a $10 withdrawal fee for each person who withdraws from a course or a trip. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GRANTED FOR SHOWS, TRIPS NOTED AS SUCH OR FOR CLASSES THAT HAVE ALREADY BEGUN. Registrations are binding since commitments to pay teachers are made on the basis of enrollment.
NO SMOKING POLICY: There is absolutely no smoking permitted in the buildings or campuses of Morris Hills or Morris Knolls High Schools.
CANCELLATIONS: At times it is necessary to cancel classes when the income from tuition is not enough to pay the instructional costs. If a class is cancelled prior to the first session, you will be notified and issued a full refund. Note that the decision to cancel a course due to low enrollment is made approximately one week before the start date of the classes. Please register early to help minimize cancellations.
