Global Kids Program FAQ – School Year Program
How do I enroll my child(ren) in the Global Kids Program?
Enrollment for Global Kids will be done through Campsite.
Enrollment Week occurs twice a year, before the start of each Global Kids semester. During Enrollment Week, families will be able to log in to the Global Kids website and make their class and time block selections for each day of the week for the upcoming semester. Enrollment Week will be announced through The Owl, according to the dates published on our calendar.
Families will receive an email with their final schedule after their enrollment selections have been approved. Payments can be made online using the Global Kids enrollment website by the end of the semester. If payment is not made in full at the time of enrollment, payments will be due monthly until the end of the semester.
For more information, please see our Enrollment page.
How do I enroll my child(ren) in Coordinated 3rd Party Classes?
3rd Party Classes are listed on Campsite and are part of the same enrollment process. Some 3rd Party Class providers may have additional enrollment instructions. Read the course description for more info.
How do I enroll my child(ren) in Independent 3rd Party Classes?

What if my child is not picked up after school by 3:45pm?
In the event that your child is not picked up after school is dismissed (after 3:45pm on a regular day), your child will be signed-in to the Global Kids program and you will be billed according to our Drop-In Fees.
