Tuition

Tuition for Castro Valley Performing Arts is based on a four-week month.  It is broken into twelve one-month (four week) sessions per year along with four weeks off per year.  As we have a large number of students who wish to take more than one class per week, we offer a sliding tuition scale in which the more classes that are taken, the less each individual class costs. This sliding scale enables our students to take a greater number of classes per week and thus makes an extensive dance education more affordable for those students who wish to really study.

*The January, April, July and December vacation periods in which the studio is closed are not counted as weeks that you pay for classes. The tuition is based on 4 weeks of classes per month X 12 months for 48 weeks of classes and 4 weeks of vacations. The weeks that the studio is closed are not included in the tuition that you pay but are the 4 extra weeks per year. If you were charged for those 4 weeks, you would be paying for 13 months of tuition instead of 12.

Castro Valley Performing Arts Tuition Policies

Tuition is based on a four-week month and it is due and payable on the first lesson of every 4 week period, which is outlined on the tuition calendar.

A 10-percent late charge is automatically charged on any tuition not received by the 10th day of the tuition calendar month. There are no refunds or carry-over credits for missed classes. Missed classes must be made-up within 4 weeks in a class other than that which the student is registered in. It is the student’s responsibility to schedule and attend these make-ups. The sliding-scale rate on one or more lessons per month does not apply unless the month is paid in full prior to the 10th day of the tuition calendar month otherwise each lesson is paid for at the single lesson rate of $20 per class. Students will be billed the individual class rate of $20 per class if the sliding-scale tuition has not been paid in full by the 10th day of the tuition calendar month. The student is responsible for notifying the teacher if he/she is missing class.

**CVPA offers a “free” trial week for first time students. This “free” week gives the student an opportunity to try various classes in order to find the “best fit” for them. After this first week, new students will be required to be registered for any further classes. First-time students registering mid-month who wish to pay the “by the month” rate will be able to pro-rate for the first month – meaning that if you register on the 3rd week of the month, you will be able to prorate the monthly fee to $11.75 per class for the remainder of that first month. This will only be allowed for students registering for their first month of dance…and will not be allowed in any month after that.

The April, July, November and December vacation periods in which the studio is closed are not counted as weeks that you pay for classes. The tuition is based on 4 weeks of classes per month X 12 months for 48 weeks of classes and 4 weeks of vacations. The weeks that the studio is closed are not included in the tuition that you pay but are the 4 extra weeks per year. If you were charged for those 4 weeks, you would be paying for 13 months of tuition instead of 12.

Tuition is non-refundable.
