Class tuition is $45 for the session, and registration is on a first come, first served basis as classes are limited by age and number of students according to individual course activities and materials. As it is an after-school program, parents will need to arrange pickup at 5:15pm.

Course offerings vary from session to session and typically span a wide range of interests. Our outstanding instructors go the extra mile to ensure our Gators have a fun and well-rounded experience at GES!
