Class Schedule Times

Students are asked to choose one class time for the duration of the program. In the event of a missed class, Elite allows its students to make up a lesson in another class to ensure graduation.

Weekday Class Schedule:

The Elite Nashville location offers a Morning class (10AM-2:30PM) and an Evening class (5:30PM-10PM) Monday-Thursday. Classes are two consecutive weeks in a row for a total of 8 days.
