Basic Necessity Requirements
Each cadet is required to bring certain basic clothing, bedding, and equipment supplies, such as underwear, socks, athletic shoes, and room cleaning supplies. These necessities are itemized in our High School Packing List. A range of activities and intramurals are provided in the fee structure above; however, should a cadet wish to participate in select activities and sports such as paintball, horseback riding or dance, additional cost may be incurred at the family’s discretion. Also, if a family wishes a cadet to have additional spending money, such funds are also separate.
The cost of tuition will include any and all college credit hours that a high school student may take, however there will be an additional cost incurred for any books, material, or lab fees that are required as part of any coursework.
Payment and Contract
For the 2014-2015 school year, limited spaces in the High School are being competed for on a first-come, first-serve basis. Payment of tuition and fees can occur anytime between acceptance and enrollment but not later than the date of enrollment; down payments of 25% or 50% must be made by date of enrollment. It is the policy of the Office of Admissions that a cadet without a properly executed contract and payment arrangement will not be allowed to enroll.
Financial Aid is available and awarded as a scholarship based on demonstrated financial need and/or merit. Financial Aid is limited and awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. Scholarships are adjudicated each year and while every effort is made to re-award scholarships to current recipients for follow on years, they are not guaranteed and, in most cases, if re-awarded, will be at least the same level the prior year. Keep in mind that while scholarships are awarded based on merit, they are kept based on merit, and all scholarship cadets are expected to set a positive example within the Corps of Cadets while staying in good academic standing.
Three types of scholarships are available:
- Academic Scholarships: these are funded directly by the school and awarded based solely on Accumulative GPA’s above 3.0.
- Opportunity Scholarships: funded through the generosity of alumni and awarded based on attitude and willingness to succeed.
- FAST Needs Based Scholarships: funded directly by the school based on family’s financial needs. Click here for the FAST user guide. Click the logo below to apply for FAST!
