For 2019, I am pleased to announce some special changes to the schedule and the format for School4Santas.   New this year, in addition to the normal two day school, is a special, one-day, advanced session with more work on creating better photos and experiences for the children and families and more special event treatments. 

One of my firm beliefs is that Santas need to start early in the year if they want to make the best of the training they are receiving.   So getting your training done by summers-end allows you the time necessary to apply what you have learned. 

As with all of our schools, this is for all Santas, Mrs Claus and those interested in the Santa industry.  Whether you are real bearded or theatrically bearded; professional or just a volunteer, this school has something for everyone.   

A single registration for 2019 is just $299 for the two day course, $429 for a couple. This includes 16 hours of training, the 240+ page course book and your personalized diploma, or two diplomas for a couple.  Travel, meals and lodging are not included.

Alumni Rates are just $239 per person, and $329 per couple  and include the full course and diplomas, no course book.

For an additional $149 per person or $199 per couple, on Monday, I will be offering the advanced day of training, “Making the Moment,” with concentration and practical application on photography, posing, special events, and expanded elements for professional Santas and Mrs. Claus. For those who have completed our two day school, this training Includes a copy of my newest book, “Making the Moment.” containing tips, advice, techniques and over 100 photos with examples for the Professional Santa and Mrs. Claus. Special certificates acknowledging advanced study, will be presented. You may register to attend only the “Making the Moment,” training. However there is a requirement that you previously attended one of our two-day general schools.

Our hotel is the Hilton Garden Inn at the Mall of America, in Minneapolis.   The room rates are just $119 per night and include breakfast each morning, free wi-fi and free parking.  We have a block of rooms set aside until May 10th and you can make your reservations by calling  (952) 854-1687 and mentioning our group, School4Santas.  To make your hotel reservation on line Click Here.

The daily school schedule is from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.  On Saturday afternoon, at the close of class, I will host a presentation of the Santa Claus Oath.  All Santas and Mrs. Claus from the region are most welcome to join the class in the Oath ceremony.  One does not need to attend the school in order to take part in the ceremony.   Special Oath certificates, suitable for framing will be presented to all attendees.

On Saturday Night, as we have done with all of our Minnesota Schools, we will have a special social and dinner in conjunction with the North Star Santas.  Again, all regional Santas, Mrs. Claus, families and friends are most welcome to attend.  You do not need to attend the school to join us for dinner. (separate checks please.)

On Sunday Afternoon, at the close of class, we will hold a ceremony to present diplomas to all students.
