How to Register & Education Policies
Visit our home page on GoSignMeUp, our new registration system. Class listings can be sorted by header, a search bar, or a menu on the left to guide you through class options. There is also a calendar option on the top right.
Returning students: you do not need to create a new account but you are required to create a new password. Go to the login button, type in firstname.lastname for the “Username” and select “I don’t know my password”. A new password should be sent to the email address we have on file for you. Use that password login to your account. Double check the information in your account since data may be outdated. If your account does not appear, you can create a new one or call the office for assistance.
You are still welcome to register on mail, phone and in person with KAC Education office (see our hours below). We are always ready to take your call, help guide you through choosing a class, and take your registration and payment.

10% Referral Discount Program
A 10% discount on your next class can be earned by referring a new student or a returning student who last took a class prior to 2010.
