Usdan officials said that for the first time, parents have the option to enroll their children online, at www.usdan.org/enroll. Those who prefer print enrollment can print the application off the web or have a form mailed to them. In addition, there will be Priority Renewal, a $100 tuition reduction for all programs—three, four and seven weeks—for enrollment through the priority deadline of Jan. 31, 2016.
A Usdan on-site visit and information session at the 200-acre woodland campus at 185 Colonial Springs Rd., Wheatley Heights, is an excellent way to learn about the many summer programs and what makes them both fun and educational. The visit begins with a guided walk through the campus, introducing the music, art, dance, theater, writing, chess, nature and recreation departments.
Usdan’s administrative leadership will share a few ideas about what shapes the Usdan program. They explain the enrollment process, and parents are then given a chance to talk in small groups, or individually, with the arts faculty and staff members. The visit ends with a self-guided walk and exploration of the grounds.
