Deposit and Tuition

  • Deposit: A $395 deposit is due with your application. Paying this fee does not guarantee admission to the program.
  • Tuition fees cover the full cost of instruction, activities, field trips, food, lodging and shuttle service to and from local airports. Tuition must be paid in full by the dates shown above to obtain the savings listed.

Discounts & Financial Aid

  • Financial Aid: The Academy offers limited, need-based financial aid to deserving students at our U.S.-based Academy locations at Green Mountain College and St. Michael’s College. Financial aid funds are awarded to families making less than $150,000 gross per year. We encourage families seeking financial aid to apply early, as our awards are given on a first-come, first-served basis starting in October. Since financial aid awards are distributed on a rolling basis, there is no guarantee financial aid funds will remain through to the end of our open enrollment period. You can download the aid application here. 
  • Sibling Discount: The Academy offers a $200 sibling discount per family on the second sibling’s enrollment for the 2015 summer Academy. Please contact Mimi Clark at to receive the $200 savings. This discount cannot be combined with any other special offers or financial aid.  

Refund Policy

  • If a student is denied acceptance into an Academy program, the entire deposit fee will be refunded.
  • If a student pays the deposit and is accepted to an Academy program, but voluntarily declines to enroll, written notice of the cancellation must be received. If a written cancellation notice is received by the following dates, refunds are as follows:
  • Cancellation Date Refund Amount
    Prior to February 28 Deposit and tuition, less $100 administrative fee
    March 1 - March 31 All tuition paid, less $395 deposit

    After April 30 No refund
  • There will be no refunds for students who withdraw for any reason after the Academy has started. 
  • If a student is dismissed from the Academy for any reason, no refund will be provided and the cost of transportation home within 24 hours will be the parents’ financial obligation. There will be no refund for a student who is asked to leave the Academy for the use of tobacco, drugs or alcohol, non-notification of a serious medical condition, or violating the rules of the program, which is determined at the sole discretion of the Academy staff.
