The application is a fill-able PDF that can be saved and emailed  to (you must download it to your computer and open it in Adobe before it’s fill-able). You can also mail it or bring it to the office. The deadline is January 5, 2018. We will need a minimum of 10 enrolled in order to hold the classes.

During the week of January 8, we will be holding applicant interviews in order to make sure that everyone knows what they are getting into.
