CDA Policies

Tuition: Tuition is based on a full school year term.  Payments may be made in advance or in monthly installments due prior to the start of the month for duration of the term. There is a $25.00 registration fee per family,per year, which is to be paid with the first month’s tuition. Registration fee can be waived if first and last months tuition are paid together. There is a $5.00 late fee charged for the first week tuition is late.  An additional $3.00 for each week after that. Tuition and Registration Fees are non-refundable.

Absences: Missed classes can be made up provided the Academy is notified in advance of the class being missed.  All missed classes must be made up within one month’s time. Regular and timely attendance is essential to your student’s progress.  They cannot learn if they are not here, and tardiness not only sets them behind but interrupts the class in progress. A student who is more than 10 minutes late to class may be asked to return another day for a make up class. 

Pickup: Students need to be picked up promptly when their class is over.  We cannot assume responsibility for your child after their class has completed. Even 15 minutes is an eternity for a child waiting.  Please do not leave your car parked in front of the entrance.  A quick pick up or drop off is fine but any longer clogs up a rather tight parking lot.

Class Observation:  Open observation is held three times per term on non-performance years and twice on performance years. Observation is open to everyone to sit in and watch classes. Cameras and videos are welcome! Otherwise, there are viewing windows in both studios. It is up to the teacher's discretion whether or not to open or close the blinds. Generally, we keep the blinds closed for our younger classes as they are easily distracted. We find that the distraction of the window is just too much for students who need to remain focused on the instructor and the class at hand. 


Snow Days: CDA will post all weather or illness related closings on the website, Facebook, Instagram, and via email and the Remind app.
