Tuition

The 2020-2021 academic year begins September 1 for full-time and part-time cadets! We follow a traditional calendar, including an optional summer school quarter (organized around weekly summer camps for maximum flexibility) for a complete year round learning plan. 

 

Due to the current pandemic conditions, we are now offering two tiers of tuition.
