Our tuition costs are set up on a family basis and are determined by the oldest student enrolled in the academy. Tuition for the school year is $936 per year for families with students in grades K – 8 ($78 per month for 12 months if paid monthly) and $1,140 per year for families with one or more students in grades 9-12 ($95 per month for 12 months if paid monthly).  The school billing year runs from July to June. Tuition includes all the major services of the academy with the exception of textbooks and optional Thursday classes. Participation in some field trips and special activities incur a fee which is billed on the monthly statements. As always, the school offices and staff will be available on a year-round basis.

CBA provides full-time administrative and office staff, paid teachers, family consultants, centralized student records, consultation for curriculum and program development, annual standardized testing, organized field trips, student assemblies and other kinds of events and activities. CBA also provides optional classes for kindergarten through 12th grade, a year end promotion event, a formal senior graduation, high school semi-formal banquet, Jr./Sr. High yearbook, school newsletter, legislative oversight and lots more. With all this, CBA still remains the lowest cost, full serviced, state board-recognized home-education program in Maryland.

You may pay your CBA bill by check or credit card. We are partnering with Diamond Mind (a tuition payment company) to give families a secure option when using a credit card for payment.
