Online Transfer Information

This information is for currently registered parents who need to transfer online.

If you have not yet done so, we need you to fill out this form to confirm your dates or request to switch dates. If you aren't sure of your current dates, you can contact juliedavis@lumosdebate.com to get a reminder dates and location email!

Pricing and Dates. Our rental costs have been mitigated, so we will be reducing our tuition for online programs to 65% of the normal rate. If you have already registered, we will provide a 35% refund on your current tuition payment when you transfer to our online program. Our online summer programs will follow the same dates schedule as the physical locations, so if you are registered for July 27-July 31, you will have a slot July 27-July 31. Please note, now that all the locations have been combined, there are more dates available for you to choose from that you can switch to. You can find our dates in the program pages in the menu.

Full Refund Guaranteed. If you think Lumos’ online program will not be a good fit for your family, we’re happy to provide a full refund - just email us (info@lumosdebate.com) and let us know the student/dates that you would like refunded. However, we are strongly encouraging families to try out the online program, even if you’re not sure. We are offering a 100% full refund guarantee this year at any point during the session. If your child tries out our online summer program and doesn’t like it, you can let us know and we’ll refund. 

What will Online Lumos look like? Our staff has been conducting online pilot programs over the last month with enthusiastic parent and student feedback. We’ve been developing and testing games and learning activities, specifically using a Zoom online format, that students have loved! Our program is adjusted from how they are in person, and even though they look different we are confident that we’ll be able to deliver a really fun and engaging summer experience!

4-Students Class Size Guaranteed. The student-teacher ratio will be four to one, so every child gets as many chances to speak as possible. Each day will consist of a morning group session, an afternoon session, and two one-on-one coaching sessions in addition to a lunch break. Each class will be capped at four students (grouped by age and experience), and each week, students will get ten one-on-one coaching sessions with our instructors. 

Sample Daily Schedule:

10:00am - 11:30am Morning Group Session: Speech warm-up games, learn new debate concepts, & practice debate drills
