For the Parents

We realize that young people will behave as young people do and as part of the village, we will support the parents/guardians to develop character and maturity. We require full participation from our parents to ensure strong follow through from their enrolled students. If we must notify parents of unacceptable behavior, we expect full support from the parents to rectify any misbehavior.

We strive to keep our tribe intentional and meaningful! Family matters! #ajces #coolnerds

Safety First

The Coolnerds will practice as much wisdom and caution as possible as we are using our space and family as a place to serve others. We will strive to keep you informed of changes as quickly as possible. There is a month to month contract so if we need to end meeting up, classes will end and parents will assume full responsibility of educating and serving their own families first. We’ll work with our families as we all remain consistent, committed, and as flexible as possible. Read more to learn about our health policies.

Attendance and Classwork

Students should arrive each day between 8am-8:25am. After 8:30 am, students will be unable to attend that day as late arrival disrupts our educational environment. Additionally, it is expected that students complete ALL assignments on-time or they will be unable to attend classes. At The Coolnerds, mistakes are welcome but failure is unacceptable. Students must be committed to a hard work ethic in order to achieve their goals. Students must consistently show self-discipline and growth and will not be assigned internships through The Coolnerds if they are frequently late for classes or behind on assignments.


Behavior policies

Students are expected to behave during all The Coolnerds activities, classes, and outings. Other students are attempting to grow and unnecessary disruption will not be tolerated. The parent of any student who is continuously disruptive will be given two (2) notices of their child’s misbehavior. Upon the third violation of this policy, the student will be required to complete his/her studies at home for one month; tuition must still be paid but no visits to The Coolnerds will be allowed. Upon return, one further violation will result in student’s expulsion from The Coolnerds with no refund.


Class Schedule 

Our classes are in session from August-May. We meet Monday-Wednesdays from 7:45am-3pm (with late pickup til 3:30pm). We offer summer sessions as needed. 



Students should pack a lunch daily. We encourage healthy meals to maintain optimal health! We learn to prepare delicious meals alongside our excellent culinary instructors and we patronize local, ethically authentic eateries to expand our tastes!
