Please contact us as soon as possible if you have been impacted and we will work out a solution for you.

Age Restrictions: Enrollment in our small-group Spanish classes is open only to adults age 18 and over. For students under the age of 18, please inquire about our private tutoring services.

Severe Weather Policy: Tierra will cancel classes when PPS and local colleges decide to close due to inclement weather. In this event, we will post a closure notice on our website and will make every effort to contact all students affected. There will be no refunds or pro-rated discounts or credits for cancellations due to weather. We will do our best to schedule a make-up class, however because of schedule constraints, this cannot be guaranteed - we appreciate your understanding.

Please see our FAQ for more information.
