Can you explain the tuition tiers and participation costs?

How much does the program cost?

We operate on a tiered tuition model, which makes our participation in our programs accessible to families from across the socioeconomic spectrum. Please see our tuition page for additional information.

How do I enroll at the “tuition assistance’ level?

Once admitted to a program, there is a two-step enrollment process. First, the student reviews and acknowledges our Essential Eligibility Criteria. An enrollment email will then be sent to the student’s parent. Parents select their tuition tier during this step in the enrollment process. Enrolling at the “tuition assistance” level (20% discount on tuition) requires no additional documentation or application. It is offered based on the honor system. Please read more about ourĀ tiered tuition model for guidelines on choosing a tier.

What’s included in the cost of tuition?

Tuition includes all accommodations, meals, activities, curriculum and instruction, ground transportation, pre-program materials and support, gratuities, and contributions to service projects.

What’s NOT included in the cost of tuition?

Tuition does not include airfare, entry or exit fees, travel/trip cancelation insurance, and personal expenses such as laundry, snacks, souvenirs, and internet or international phone calls. Most of our global learning programs also require a $95 InternationalSOS membership fee, which provides emergency assistance, evacuation and repatriation coverage. Please see individual program pages for airfare information and a breakdown of any entry or exit fees.
