Registration is easy! On your first visit, please be sure to have a completed registration form that is signed by both student and parent. You may turn in your completed form to one of our staff and you're all set! The next time all you have to do is sign-in and out.

Cupertino Resident Fee: FREE! Must have Cupertino address.

Non-resident Fee: $5/day or $40 for a 10-day pass.

Our Teen Center is a drop-in facility which means teens have the ability to sign themselves in and out. Once a student signs out and steps out of our facility the parent and/or guardian is responsible for supervision of the student. Please be sure to communicate with your teen on how you would like them to participate in our facility.
