Our academic year curriculum covers different topics intrinsic to LARP activities and to the community arts. We're proud to say that our curriculum not only covers educational benchmarks for the theatre arts, STEM learning, multiple intelligence education and more, but we also foster an environment where youth can make lifelong friends and build a community to call their own.

Our programs include:

Character Creation – Make original heroes to play LARP, discover your own personal legend.

Martial Arts for Self Confidence and Self Control – How to play the game with respect for oneself and for others.

DIY Projects – Build your own LARP gear, learn to think creatively and make solutions.

How to Play LARP – Learn the game rules and how to use your character abilities. Understand gameplay and mechanics.

Event Prep and Playing your Character - Time to celebrate all your hard work and apply the skills you have learned!

For each year the student attends out program, their skills with these foundational LARP and educational subjects increase. After three years of completion of classes and projects, students are encouraged to apply for our community arts leadership program called the Marshals Academy. This is where youth learn how to host and run LARPs.

Please note: We highly recommend for any student who wishes to attend LARP Games Fridays, that they attend curriculum classes. By doing so, they will learn how to participate in the game of LARP as well as learn the important pillars of our community.

In addition, for students to progress in the program (i.e. gain experience points to develop their character), they must attend curriculum classes and / or events. Attending LARP Games Fridays without curriculum classes will not earn experience points. We see these classes as a form of entertainment and a reward for the self-development, community development and educational programming we do during the rest of the week.

Late Fees

For late pick-ups from program and events, we will be allowing a ten minute grace period after the end of the program or event at no charge. After those ten minutes have elapsed, we will be charging $10 for every five-minute period that the youth is still with us. We assume that high school youth are allowed to leave programming by themselves unless told otherwise, but this is especially pertinent to events not local to Arlington.

For late payments, we will be incurring a fee of 20% of interest per month after the payment due date. In the event there is no due date posted payment are due within 15 days of service. All event payments are due one week before event start. All summer camps payments are due before registration closes. We highly recommend electronic payments, over check by mail, as they are time stamped and record for both parties.

We are always flexible to make payment plans as needed, please communicate with us before payments are due. All late payments without communications will be charged.

Absences

At any point during the year, if a student is going to be missing from program, we ask that parents or the youth notify the L.A.P. staff as soon as possible so we can adjust the attendance accordingly. Email notification is the preferred method for both planned absences and last-minute absences.

Event Fee

Each year we run a celebration adventure for each of our student years - 1st year, 2nd year and 3rd year students, as well as our high school students. These events are run over the course of one weekend at our Heroes Journey Event in late April. All those who attend curriculum classes are expected to attend these events as they are the culmination of all they have been learning during the academic year.

Details, including date and cost, will be released near the end of Fall.

Graduation Ceremony

At the end of the school year every June, the entire L.A.P. community comes together for an inter-generational graduation ceremony. During this ceremony, students receive their certificates for completing the year's curriculum. In addition, student talents and accomplishments are showcased for all in attendance. We cordially invite all family members and friends of the youth receiving certificates to attend the event.

Details, including date and time, will be released near the end of Fall. There is no charge for attending the graduation ceremony.
