Due to popular demand, this school offering is now closed.  We are pleased that over 235 have attended our live schools this year.   Currently there are no plans to offer any additional live classes this year.   However, the Home Study course is now available.

School4Santas is offered in different areas and cities across the nation each year.  The idea is to go where the Santas live.   Should  you wish to have a school  in your area, the one main requirement is the need to have at least a dozen Santas registering to attend.  Please contact Santa Tim is this is something that you or your local association would like to have in 2020

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.
