Instructional Programs - SKIESUnlimited


Extracurricular Instructional Classes
For children ages 3-18

SKIES Unlimited stands for “School of Knowledge, Inspiration, Exploration and Skills” with the word “Unlimited” for the unlimited possibilities that this program provides children and youth: 

  • All participants must be registered with CYS
  • On-going enrollment for most classes (new students may need to wait for open enrollment)
  • Currently enrolled SKIES students will be automatically re-enrolled into the next session for most classes to retain their space. Payment for the session must be made before the first day of class.
  • Classes will be filled on a first-paid basis.
  • Children and youth who are currently registered in CYS may be able to enroll for some of the SKIES classes using WebTrac.

Registration is usually conducted in two-month blocks: priority registration, which is done bi-monthly for current students, is always the first Wednesday of the month, and general registration, which is always the second Wednesday of the month.

Registration continues until classes are full. Individual music instruction fees are added to the household, and are due by the first lesson of the month. The bi-monthly registration months for group classes are Feb., Apr., June, Aug., Oct., and Dec.

For individual music classes, all children and youth are put on a waitlist, which is maintained electronically. Students are placed by the order in which they entered the waitlist (unless they are not flexible with the time slot that is offered or they want to be placed back-to-back with a sibling). All students can be placed on a waitlist via an office visit to Parent Central Services or via telephone.
