2017 Brochure and Application Forms Available Now!
We will begin placing children in classes on April 1. Applications are welcome after that date, but late applicants may find that some classes are already full. Please select alternate classes that are of interest should your first choice be unavailable. We will make every attempt to place children in their first choice of courses, however, that will not always be possible. Please note on your application if you have applied to a class before but not been admitted.
Tuition and fees: Tuition for one six week course is $420. Tuition for one three week course is $250. Material fees, if any, are noted in the course description. A $30 registration fee is due with this application (payable by clicking THIS LINK). This application fee will be returned if your child is not placed in a course, but is non-refundable if you voluntarily withdraw from a course in which your child has been placed. You will receive a bill for tuition for the courses in which your child has been placed with the placement confirmation. Failure to remit tuition by May 15 will result in forfeiture of a place in the class.
Scholarships: Partial scholarships are available for those truly in need. Please send a written request for financial aid along with your registration, explaining your need, and a letter certifying financial need from a counselor, clergy, or social worker.
Volunteer service: CSS is run by volunteers. All parents are asked to volunteer whenever possible, but at the minimum, all parents of enrolled children must provide transportation for at least one field trip, or work at the CSS front desk for two class periods per three-week period enrolled. For a six-week course, it is expected that a parent will drive for two field trips or work at the desk for four class periods per child. Please note, additional children are not permitted to accompany parents during volunteer duties.
