Registration

Registration for our 2018 season will open January 15th for returning students and their siblings and February 1st for new students…we hope you’ll consider joining us next summer! Please read the following information before beginning the registration process.

CET’s 2018 Season runs June 25-July 28. Reserve your place now! CET spaces are filled on a first-received, first-reserved basis. Preference is given to returning students and their siblings until February 1. Registration forms will be accepted until program has reached capacity.

LOCATION – Howard Street Charter School, 710 Howard Street SE, Salem, Oregon.

WHAT IS CET? – Students involved in CET will have the exciting opportunity to participate in three classes that include acting, music, dance, technical theatre, stage combat, improvisation and more. 2017 course descriptions can be found here if you’d like an idea of what we offer. Students enrolled in our performance program (Levels 1-4 & Level 7) will be cast in one of our productions (yes, everyone gets a role!). Students enrolled in our technical arts program (Levels 5 & 6) will be working behind the scenes to make the productions happen. This includes working on lighting, stage management, prop making, and more. CET’s success is based on everyone’s commitment to the program. Attendance for the full five weeks is expected.

CALENDAR – CET is a family commitment – please review the CET calendar for the season to ensure availability. CET students are expected to attend all days and commit to the entire program (see policy for pre-excused absences in the registration form).

STUDENT/PARENT HANDBOOK

PARENT SERVICE COMMITTEE – Review the list to determine which committee you would like to serve on. See Parent Service Information on the registration form for buy-out option. Each participant serving parent service hours must have a current and approved background check on file.

You may also download the Background Check Form from our FORMS page.

WALK-IN REGISTRATION – Students and parents are welcome to attend walk-in registration in the spring of 2018 (date & time to be determined). Talk directly with CET staff, parents and board members, get your questions answered and make your final payment.
tuition.vs.truecost

TUITION – $545 for level 1 or 1A, $595 for level 2-7. See the Tuition section in our registration form for payment options. Please be aware that if payment is received after May 5, 2018, tuition will increase by $25 (from $545 to $570 for Levels 1-1A, from $595 to $620 for Levels 2-7). Please note that paying by check will help us avoid credit card fees. CET board members, staff and volunteers work year round to secure additional funds through grants, special events, our Fine Arts Night Auction and ticket sales to help offset the real cost of $750 per student for the CET program.

TUITION ASSISTANCE – Limited tuition assistance is available and we’ve created the Q scholarship fund, named after our founder, Phyllis Quanbeck, for the purpose of sharing the magic of CET with students of any background.
