We are holding our Entrepreneurship and the Environment course from June 22 – July 3 (Mon – Fri) and our Sustainable Cities course from July 6 – 17. We have a dedicated page describing our online courses here.
There is no fee to participate in an online course this summer. Instead we have a suggested financial contribution of $500 for families. This is a guideline, and we’d be perfectly happy to have students participate at any level that feels appropriate, including zero tuition.
Yes. However: 1) Students that will graduate in 2021 should probably only consider an online course since we do not typically enroll graduated seniors. 2) We also do not suggest enrolling in an online version of a course that you intend to participate in next summer because there will be a lot of redundancy in subject matter.
We have an enrollment cap of 50 students, so if you enroll and then don’t participate you would be taking a spot from another participant. Please be sure you can attend before making a decision to enroll.
No. Students should be prepared to attend every class session and also commit to around 20 hours of group project work outside of class.
Since we are essentially valuing the cost of the online course at zero dollars, we believe that any amount families would like to contribute towards a 2020 program would be tax deductible, but you should confer with a tax advisor.
We are big believers in trust. We feel confident that families with the means to contribute will do so.
