The excellence of CDCA depends on two basic sources of income: tuition and student fees, and fund raising. While tution provides the largest percentage of school income, we also depend on fund raisers, fund drivers, gifts and contributions to the school. Gifts to CDCA are tax-deductible. Throughout the school year, there are normally several fundraisers. Everyone is not expected to participate in every fundraiser. However for the betterment of the school for your child’s education, we encourage everyone to choose a couple fundrasiers and get involved.
Tuition is below the actual cost of educating your child, and is well below what it costs per child in public school. This has to be off-set through prayer, fund raisers, gifts made to the school, and frugal budgeting.

Building Fund Fee
A $200.00 annual fee per family for building maintenance and mortgage. Since we do not use a church building which the church provides and pays the utility bills, families are required to provide this. Payment of this fee will be worked out as convenient with the family, and can be paid in time and services. Details in Guidebook.
