Effective January 19, 2018


Waiver: In consideration of being permitted to participate in any Lighthouse Program (hereinafter known as the “Program”), I, for myself, my heirs, personal representatives or assigns, do hereby release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue Samantha Quist, Lighthouse Programs, and their affiliates from liability from any and all claims including the negligence of the program administrators resulting in personal injury, accidents or illnesses, and property loss arising from, but not limited to, participation in the Program. If I am also signing this form on behalf of a minor, I desire and warrant that I am authorized to sign on behalf of that minor. My electronic agreement constitutes my signature.

Online Tools: I understand that Lighthouse may require students to use external communication tools including but not limited to email, videochat, or other services and Lighthouse is not responsible for technical support or any other costs associated with using these tools.

Assumption of Risks: Participation in the Program carries with it certain inherent risks, from minor to severe, that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid harm or injury.

I have read the previous paragraph and I know, understand, and appreciate these and other risks that are inherent to the Program. I hereby assert that my participation is voluntary and that I knowingly assume all such risks.

Indemnification and Hold Harmless: I agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Samantha Quist and Lighthouse Programs from any and all claims, actions, suits, procedures, costs, expenses, damages and liabilities, including attorney’s fees, which may arise by reason of participation in the Program.

Severability: The undersigned further expressly agrees that the foregoing waiver and assumption of risks agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the State of California and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.

Acknowledgment of Understanding: I have read this waiver of liability, assumption of risk, and indemnity agreement, fully understand its terms, and understand that I am giving up substantial rights, including my right to sue on my own behalf and on behalf of my minor child. I acknowledge that I am signing the agreement freely and voluntarily, and intend by my signature to be a complete and unconditional release of all liability on behalf of myself and my minor child to the greatest extent allowed by law.


I agree that my child can be interviewed, photographed and videotaped during the sessions, and that quotes, photographs or videos can be used by Samantha Quist and Lighthouse Programs (and their designees), for instructional or promotional materials without compensation.


I understand that payment is due upon acceptance to a program, and is not refundable or transferable except if the program is canceled by Lighthouse, in which case I will receive a full refund. I further understand that I am responsible for the cost of repairing or replacing any property that my child damages while on the program’s premises. I further understand that if my child fails to follow program rules and regulations, he/she may be dismissed from the program without refund and may be subject to disqualification from attendance at future sessions.
