Our “pay what you can” model makes this valuable experience as accessible as possible for families.

If your participation in our program is contingent on receipt of financial aid, please contact our staff prior to submitting your application and paying your non-refundable Application Fee. Our goal is to make our program available to as many students as possible without regard to financial capability, so we ask that you not request financial aid unless it is absolutely necessary to participate in our program.
