CBA Policies for the Academic Year:

  • For your convenience, CBA uses monthly billing that automatically drafts from your credit card on file. A credit card is required upon registering; the first month’s tuition will be charged at the time of enrollment along with registration fees. 
  • Registration Fee (Assessed at time of registration): $20 charged for the first student per family (includes adults), $10 for each additional student per family. Registration fees are charged once per academic year.
  • Tuition is charged automatically on the 15th of every month (except December) for the following month’s tuition. November payments will be applied to January tuition.
    • Please note that you will NOT receive an invoice each month.
    • The credit card on file will be charged if another form of payment (cash, check, or alternate credit card) is not received by the tuition due date.
    • Any declined cards will carry a fee of $10 and any returned checks will carry a fee of $25.00.
  • All students register for the full academic year at CBA (September 2019-May 2020). Notice of dropping a class must be e-mailed to [email protected] by the 15th of the month or the card on file will be charged without refund.
