How Classes Work
Brave Writer’s Online Classroom
Registration is now live!
Simply refresh your screen until the purple button below is “clickable.” (Hard refresh may be needed if your browser stores a cached page.)
A student is fully enrolled in a class when you have completed the registration form and you have submitted payment (check, credit card/Paypal, charter school purchase order).
Without payment, you are not fully enrolled in class, and can be displaced by a later registration that includes payment.
For more details, please read the revised Rules for Registration before you register.
4 Quick Registration Tips
The registration form requires you to fill in Parent Information first. Then you will select your classes. Classes are divided into “Family Classes” (where you may enroll multiple children for one price) and “Student Classes” (where you pay a fee for each child). When you select a family class, we still need your student information for each child. You will not be billed any additional fee when you fill in their information.
Be sure to select the right number of students you enrolled for the discount for Kidswrite Basic in order to have the deduction taken from the full price before you click “submit.” There is no “second student discount” for any other class.
If you plan to pay by check or charter school purchase order, simply note the total tuition due once you fill out the registration form and send a check or notify your school. The registration form automatically redirects to Paypal. Ignore it. Click out of that window. Your registration is complete even if you don’t pay with Paypal. We need the Purchase Order for charter school payments in order to complete your registration. Read how to request a Charter School Payment below.
You’ll receive an email receipt for your enrollment and a separate Paypal receipt for your payment (if you pay by credit card or Paypal). If you do not receive a Paypal receipt, your payment did not go through.
Contact Julie (513) 307-1405 if you have any difficulties!
Send registration information via email to Julie.
Put Winter 2014 Classes in the subject line.

- Phone number
To pay with Paypal, simply go to Paypal.com, select the Send Money option. Send the correct amount to firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate which class you are paying for and which student. We’ll take care of the rest. Otherwise, please use one of the payment options below.
Attention: Classes Fill Quickly
If you want to ensure that you are enrolled in a class, register early and pay when you register. Don’t let time get away from you!
The classes in winter session that fill the most quickly are:
Class registration stays open until classes are full (we note when classes fill on the registration form).
To learn more about how online classes work, read our online classes description.
Be sure to read the Rules for Registration.
If you’re traveling and have no access to the Internet, ask a friend to register for you. Payment can be mailed as a check when you get home. Or you can “chance” it and sign up upon return.
Your registration is not complete until we receive payment, and your spot is not secure without payment.
You are NOT fully enrolled for a class until we have payment. You may register and choose to pay later (we need payment one week before class begins). However, you risk being bumped from the class if the class fills with paying students before we receive your tuition. We will send you one reminder notice for payment 2 weeks before class begins, assuming there is still space in the class. Without tuition, we will automatically cancel your registration the week before class begins.
Families may sign up for multiple classes for multiple students at one time. However, we prefer you not enroll one student for two classes if they overlap in dates (without emailing us first to discuss). We’ve discovered the hard way that students most often can’t fulfill the demands of Brave Writer courses if they have to keep up with two at once.
Travel during class:
We prefer you not miss more than a few (3-4) consecutive days of any class. If you go out of town, you will need to evaluate whether or not you’ll have consistent Internet access AND the time/motivation to do the work. Take into consideration the motivation of the student (not just your motivation). We will not move you to a new session or refund your tuition if travel made participation too difficult.
We do observe the specified age range for classes without special permission from the staff. Contact Julie if you need special permission.

Class tuition can be paid using a credit card or by check/money order. You’ll be redirected to Paypal after you complete the registration form. To complete your payment with a credit card, follow the steps outlined by Paypal. To pay by check, simply note the total and click out of the Paypal screen. Mail your check (instructions below) to complete your registration. Your enrollment will be confirmed by an email with your registration information. Your payment is confirmed by Paypal in a separate email receipt.
Charter School Payments:
We accept these. Ask your charter school to:
Scan and email a purchase order to Brave Writer
Or mail it to:
Brave Writer LLC
7723 Tylers Place Blvd. Ste. 165
West Chester, OH 45069
In your instructions to the charter school, title the class:
- Kidswrite Basic Curriculum or
- Expository Essay Curriculum (and so on)
- Do not put class in the title.
Charter schools are run by the state and the word “class” is a flag that means your child will be in a physical classroom with a teacher. That kind of class setting requires a different kind of payment system that Brave Writer does not support or use. Because these are online classes, taught on a message board, we are in a different category: distributing an online curriculum over a specified period of time through text. Therefore curriculum is the right title.
Make checks payable to Brave Writer LLC:
Brave Writer LLC
7723 Tylers Place Blvd. Ste. 165
West Chester, OH 45069
Include a note with these details:
- Your name
- Your children’s names and the classes they are taking
- The names of the classes
- Your email address
- Your phone number
Tuition is due one week before the class start date.
You may send multiple smaller payments until the due date, if that helps you to manage the total. Please mention that strategy in the comments section of your registration or via email so we may make a note of it. Your registration will not be secure, however, until payment is complete.
An email receipt will be emailed to you to confirm your registration. A separate receipt for payment will be sent to you via Paypal or you will have your canceled check as your receipt for check payment.
You are completely enrolled in a Brave Writer Class once you have completed the registration form AND have paid tuition in full.
Conditions for canceling registration or withdrawing from class:
Once you have enrolled and paid for class, there are no refunds after the first day of class.
If for some reason you must withdraw from class between the time you enroll and class begins, your refund will be as follows:
Between enrollment and two weeks before class begins: 100% minus service charge of $25.00 per class.
During the week before class begins: 75% of tuition.
After class begins, no refunds for any reason.
