It’s easy to apply to the Summer Academy. Go to our online application, select the session(s) you wish to attend, provide necessary contact information, and write a short (100 word) paragraph telling us a bit more about why you're interested in joining us. Upload an unofficial transcript, and your application is complete!
Applications are processed on a rolling basis beginning in January until our program is full.
A $200 deposit is required by June 1, 2021 to secure your place in the session(s) you wish to attend. If you are attending multiple sessions on one campus, a single $200 deposit is all that’s needed. If attending sessions on both campuses, deposits must be submitted to each location.
Summer Academy tuition is $1,100 per week. Tuition covers room, meals, books, activity fees, and cool St. John’s swag.
We understand that the cost of the Summer Academy may be out of reach for some families, and we will do our best to provide some assistance to those with financial need. Please reach out to the Summer Academy Directors for additional information.
The Summer Academy Scholarship Application and required attachments are due on or before May 7, 2021.
