Tuition and Financial Aid

LibraryEligibility Requirements
The program is open to academically motivated and socially mature students currently completing grades 9-11. Admission is selective and is based primarily on the student's application essay and an accompanying teacher's recommendation.

Tuition and Financial Aid
The workshop is designed as a three-week residential program. The cost of tuition, room and board, and selected off-campus activities is $2850.00. Tickets for additional off-campus activities are available at group rates. We typically recommend students bring around $125-$150 in discretionary spending money for the three weeks. Modest financial aid is available for students with demonstrated financial need. Requests for financial aid should be submitted along with the rest of the student's application materials.
