Q: Who needs a VIA Family membership?
A: Regardless of whether one student is taking one workshop, or four children are going to take full class loads both semesters of a school year, the family needs to apply for and pay for an annual membership.
The membership must be renewed once a year regardless of how many classes/semesters your family will be participating in.
Q: Does my family need to be a VIA member in order to participate in events?
A: Yes. All VIA event participants must belong to a current VIA member family. Students do not need to actively be taking a class, only the family registration fee and form must be up to date for the year.
