General Sessions – Sat & Sun, August 10 & 11
Advanced Session – Mon, August 12
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.
- TEN NATIONAL $500 SCHOLARSHIPS. For 2019, We are pleased to announce that Orbitz Worldwide is joining with School4Santas to present ten(10) special $500 Orbucks Scholarships to attend School4Santas. Orbitz would like to send ten deserving Santas or Mrs. Claus who have never enrolled in a Santa Training program or school, on a sort of mini-vacation, to attend a School4Santas. Each of the ten recipients will receive $500 in Orbucks to pay for their School4Santas registration at one of our schools, with the balance for their use to cover travel and lodging to attend their selected school. Click here for details and to apply for a scholarship.
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, “The Special Santa!,” 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.
