Refund Policy

Tuition paid is non-refundable and non-transferable to another student or program. Students are eligible for a pro-rated tuition refund only if they withdraw from classes due to prolonged illness or severe injury, verified by a doctor’s certificate. Should classes need to be suspended due to an act of God or pandemic, a Zoom alternative will be provided. In the event of a class cancellation, you will be offered makeup alternatives.

Nondiscrimination Policy

In order to provide equal admission and advancement opportunities to all students, admission decisions at ADA are based on ability. ADA does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, a genetic trait, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by law.

Withdrawal Policy

Should a parent desire to withdraw a student prior to the end of the Academic Year, ADA must receive written notice stating the student’s name and the date the student will officially withdraw from the program. The Parent or Guardian will be responsible for all tuition payments due until a written notice of withdrawal is received stating the date of withdrawal. Verbal notification of withdrawal will not be accepted. Please see the ADA Refund Policy for information.
