School Hosted Classes

Term dates for the 2019-2020 school year:

Fall (8 weeks) – September 16 – November 8
Winter (6 weeks) – January 21 – February 28
Spring (8 weeks) – March 23 – May 15

Registration for the term open three weeks prior to the start of the term.

Fliers for the classes taking place in the Cedar Rapids Community School District are placed in the Virtual Backpack for the school where it is taking place as well as being distributed at the school. In the College Community Schools fliers are distributed by the instructor teaching the class.  At both locations the classes are typically announced during morning announcements.

We follow the CRCSD school schedule for holiday and school break closings.

We are watching COVID-19 recommendations

The Eastern Iowa Arts Academy, like all of Cedar Rapids’ beloved community organizations, is doing its best to gather reliable information from the CDC (, and the Iowa Department of Public Health ( in response to COVID-19.  We are following the lead of the Cedar Rapids Community School Distric and College Community School District and monitoring their decisions.  Because schools are now closed, there will not be any classes taking place.  We will make further decisions about Spring Term classes once we coordinate with the school districts.

We will communicate with parents through the instructors and our Amilia online registration system if there is a change regarding our scheduled classes for the Spring Term.  If you want to be sure we have your correct email address, please contact us ( If you are not receiving email notifications from our system about your enrollment in a class, it may be that you have not received or accepted an invitation from us.  We can resend invitations that have a 24 hour window of acceptance.  Please contact us to let us know if you would like us to resend an invitation.  Once you are in the system you can login and check your registration status.  See our Blog post for more and check back on this page for updates specific to classes taking place in the schools!
