2021-2022 Session
The 2021-2022 session runs from September 26, 2021 thru June 30, 2022. Upon registration, your student is enrolled through the end of the session. There is no drop in policy. Classes are not charged on a per class basis based on selected attendance dates. For example, if you child misses several classes in a given month, your tuition is still due and payable.

Your student may be removed from the academy with a 30 day written notice requesting disenrollment.

Tuition and Fees:
Tuition is calculated as a monthly per class rate. Please see our website for the current season's rates.

Summer Performance Series:
Tuition for the summer performance series is a flat rate of $350 payable in two installments. One half at registration and the other half midway through the program.

Beginning the 2021-2022 season, all monthly payments will be due on the 1st of each month. Payments can be made online through the parent portal. Tuition (prorated) for one month and registration fees are due at the time of registration for all classes. CSAA Academy offers a monthly automatic payment option. Your bank statement, credit/debit card statement or email confirmation will service as your proof of payment. An insufficient funds fee of $35 will be assessed for any returned payments.

Delinquent Accounts:
Beginning the 2021-2022 season, monthly tuition plans are due on the 1st of each month. Effective September 1, 2021, payments made after the 1st of the month is subject to a late fee of $35. Students with delinquent/late accounts will not be allowed to attend class until their obligation is satisfied.

CSAA Academy does not provide refunds partial or full.

Attendance/Tardiness/Late Pickup:
Consistent attendance is essential to a student’s growth and development at CSAA Academy. Please call or email the Academy if your student will be absent from class. If a student misses four (4) classes, the student will automatically be dropped from that class. In order to be reinstated, the account must be current and a reinstatement fee of $25 will need to be paid.
If a student arrives 15 minutes late for class, they can observe the class but not participate. It is highly disruptive to review missed information for one late student.

It is imperative that your child is picked up promptly after class and rehearsals. There will be a $10 service fee for the first ten (10) minutes and $5 for every five minutes thereafter. Penalties will double after three late pickups. This late pickup policy applies to the Summer Performance Series as well. This fee is payable via CashApp at $CenterStageAcademy due immediately at pickup.
