Registration is fast, easy, and secure. Registration is accepted in our Active Net Online System. If this is your first time using the system you’ll need to create an account for you and any of your family members that you would also like to enroll into programs.
Program and transaction fees may apply. Many of our programs are free for McHenry County residents but some require payment upon enrollment. When registering for programs that have fees a $2.00 non-refundable transaction fee is added to the total order. Whether you register for one or ten programs at the same time the total non-refundable transaction fee is $2.00. Transaction fees apply for all methods of registration including online, in person, by mail and fax, and over the phone.
Can’t attend a program? Contact us right away! Email us at Education@MCCDistrict.org or call the Prairieview Education Center at 815-479-5779. Unless otherwise stated in the program description we issue refunds of program fees for cancellations received at least five business days prior to the program. Summer camps require a notice of ten business days. For programs that have a waiting list we may issue refunds closer to the program date should we be able to fill the space with another participant from the waiting list.
