Due to the continuing uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, CYA has extended the amendment of its Cancellation and Refund Policy to include Winter 2022 as follows:

In the event that a student withdraws from, or CYA cancels, the Winter 2022 program prior to the program’s Arrival Date, CYA will refund 100% of all monies received including any non-refundable deposits.
