PLEASE Register ONLINE and SEND ALL PAYMENTS to Perform America LLC
Each traveler must register online. If they are paying with a credit card upon enrollment, the system will generate a receipt/confirmation for their payment. If they are mailing in a payment, once the check is received and entered, a receipt/confirmation will be generated then.
Just a small note - please advise the parents to be aware that clicking twice to submit the enrollment for their child will result in being charged for double the amount of the trip (if they are paying by credit card). Also, individuals must go through all of the steps online before they are fully registered for the trip.
Lastly, if a parent is planning to register both their child and themselves, they will unfortunately need to register under two separate accounts as the system does not connect the adult and student packages together. They would need two separate email addresses/accounts - one for all of the student packages and one for all of the adult packages.
If anyone has any questions regarding registration, feel free to contact
