Hybrid Classes

All of our classes are hybrid. That means they are both available online and in-person. Students can choose when they want to come in person and when they want to join online at home.


If a student plans to take classes online, they will need to have a laptop/computer/tablet that can access Zoom. They will also need to have a webcam and a microphone to interact and communicate with teachers and classmates.


In the Au Pair program we allow students to take all of their classes online. However, some agencies are requiring Au Pairs to take classes only in-person. Students NEED to check with their agencies to confirm this information because these requirements are subject to change at any time.
