We at Cheltenham Township Adult School treat our students with respect and courtesy, and we expect our students to do the same with CTAS and Cheltenham School District staff and other students. CTAS and Cheltenham School District personnel have the authority to give directives to students concerning conduct in and use of the premises. Students who do not follow these directives may lose the privilege of attending CTAS courses, and no refunds or vouchers will be issued. Our teachers express their own views, and the opinions and advice communicated in the classroom do not necessarily reflect the perspective or beliefs of CTAS. CTAS assumes no liability for students’ work or belongings left on the premises. 


The Cheltenham Township Adult School welcomes students of any race, color, gender identity, or national and ethnic origin to partake of all rights, privileges, programs and activities, and does not discriminate in the administration of its educational policies, scholarships, athletics or other school programs. 


Cheltenham High School is accessible to wheelchairs, with ample handicapped parking, a ramp at entrances, and an elevator available by prior arrangement. Please contact the office to use the elevator or for other accommodations, and with questions about the accessibility of off-site classes. 


Only high-school-aged children can register for CTAS classes (in person or on Zoom) or trips, and, with rare exceptions, must be accompanied by a parent or guardian enrolled in the same course or trip. No younger children are permitted on trips or in the buildings during Adult School classes.
