Is Financial Aid available?
Yes, financial aid is available to those who qualify. In order to apply for financial aid please submit your parent’s or guardian’s latest tax return along with a letter from both you and your parent or guardian expressing your need for assistance and your desire to attend the Institute. The deadline to submit financial aid requests is May 15th.

What is the "Extension"?
The Extension is an opportunity for students to receive individual one on one attention. For these few days after the conclusion of the regular camp, our already impressive student to faculty ratio becomes even smaller, allowing the student to have an even greater interaction with the staff.
