Wait list

If a desired course is full, email robot@maryville.edu to be added to a wait list. However, please keep in mind that seats rarely open up and it is generally better to sign up for another one of our engaging courses in that time slot to ensure placement within the program.

Class times

The program runs from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. July 13-24, 2015. Participants may participate full time (4 classes), sign up for a morning class in either or both weeks, an afternoon class in either or both weeks, or take a morning class one week and an afternoon class in the other.

Morning participants arrive between 8:50 and 9:10 and must be picked up between 11:50 and 12:10. Afternoon participants arrive between 12:50 and 1:10 and must be picked up between 3:50 and 4:10. Full-day participants arrive between 8:50 and 9:10 and must be picked up between 3:50 and 4:10.

Lunch options

Refund policy

For those who register between registration opening through April 14: As families often need to make decisions about summer programs very early in the year to schedule the busy summer months and to ensure placement in our fastest selling courses, we understand that sometimes plans change. So that you feel confident paying tuition in the winter and spring for a July program, the Maryville Summer Science and Robotics Program offers a 100% refund policy for courses until April 30th.

However, in order to maintain small class sizes, we offer limited placements in each class and most of our classes sell out by spring. When you pay tuition for a class in our program, you reserve a placement for your child that no one else can purchase. By May, many families have made summer plans and we are often unable to resell placements. Therefore, unless we have a child on the course waiting list that takes your child’s place, we can only offer a 50% refund from May 1 through June 15 and are unable to offer refunds June 16 and afterward except in extreme cases such as a death in the family or medical emergency.

Late registrant policy: For those who register on May 1 or after, we offer a 100% refund through June 15 and a 50% refund through the onset of the program. For those who register after June 15, we offer a 100% refund through the onset of the program.
