You must have an account and be logged in to enroll for classes.

Most fall term classes will run for 8 weeks, but we do have several classes this term that will only run for 6 weeks (Kim's and Janet's). If your student is enrolled in a 6 week class, they may attend Supervised Stay for the 2 weeks that they do not have class.

For the fall term, CHEC will follow CDC Covid recommendations. Under the current community level response system, this would mean requiring indoor masking if the community has a high level of Covid transmission, but not requiring indoor masking if our level is low or medium. Note that Louisa Cahan's We Are Artists class will require masks regardless of community level.
