  • Flex Schedule: Magnus operates on a flex schedule, pick and choose which class works best week to week.

    • Ex: Monday and Wednesday work best this week vs. Tues and Thursday next week.

1. Monday: 5:45 – 6:30PM

2. Tuesday: 5:00 – 5:45PM

3. Wednesday: 5:45 – 6:30PM

4. Thursday: 5:00 – 5:45PM

Our current schedules are in subject to review every quarter due to Covid to make sure they all fit the best needs of the school’s student population. 

Immediate Age 7+ Advice:  All Age 7+ programming features unlimited attendance enrollment – families utilize our flex schedule (see above). 
Speaking from experience – in order to see the best results I highly suggest all students attend class at a minimum of 6-8 times per month. Anything less than 5 per month generally leads to a confidence loss as the student falls behind in curriculum and feels a gradual distance from the training group. 
You can always attend more than 8 classes per month, that range is my suggestion for confidence development in this specific program at our school.
