A Note About Our 2021 August Course

​CPYB’s intent for summer of 2021 is to offer a limited number of students a two week, in-person August Course. We are preparing to operate our in-person program with rigorous health and safety guidelines in place.

Our plans will continue to evolve in the coming months and are dependent upon updates to public health policies. Please continue to check back as updates will be made according to the latest available information and CDC requirements. CPYB is excited to help you advance your training this coming summer!

Even with an unforeseeable disaster, CPYB will not refund your application fee or half of your tuition.
