Why do I need to create a profile for my child?

No, only one profile needs to be created for each child.  Once the profile is created a Banner ID (student ID) is assigned for the child. The Banner ID will be used for each registration (going forward or from this point forward).

What is a Banner ID?

It’s a generated ID for each student to register at the Alamo Colleges.

Do each of my children need their own Banner ID?

Yes, in order to register for class (s) a Banner ID is required for each student. 

What if I do not have a Social Security number for my child am I able to still register my child?

Yes, you are able to register your child for class (s) without a Social Security number.  Without a Social Security number you will not be able to register online for the first time. .  You will have to call or come by our offices to register your child for class (s).

When and where do I pay?

Payment is required one week prior to class start date.  Payment can be made via check in our office, Mountain Laurel Hall room 234 and in our Cypress Campus Center (business office).  Credit card payments can be made online through your ACES account or at our business office.  Cash payments can only be made at the business office. 

Where are the classes held?

All of our classes are held at the Pecan Hall building in Northwest Vista College.

Does the fee cover all six weeks or just one Saturday?

Are the instructors hired by Northwest Vista certified to teach the class (s)?

Is there a background and criminal check performed for each instructor?

Yes, all instructors go through background and criminal checks before start of employment.

Is financial aid or scholarships offered for class (s)?

No, we do not offer financial aid or scholarships for these classes.

Can my child attend class if he/she is not the age at start of class, but is turning the appropriate age throughout the session?

The majority of our classes are based on age and grade level to ensure each child obtains appropriate instruction and skills.  If the child is five but is entering kindergarten he/she is able to attend the 3-5 year old courses. If the following year the child turns 6, but is not yet in 1st grade, they can be placed in the 1st-2nd grade classes.  If you are unsure of which level your child should register for, please contact our offices. 

Where can I find registration information including my child’s schedule once my registration is complete?

When you complete the registration process you are able to view your child’s schedule through the ACES account you created.  ACES will allow you to view the class (s) your child is registered for. 

NOTE: Upon registration, there will be no additional information mailed out nor will you receive an email confirmation.
