I Want to Support Youth Scholarships

We strive to offer the Academy experience at a greatly reduced tuition for every qualified youth applicant who wants to participate in the Academy experience regardless of financial need.

When you support the scholarship fund, your donation is earmarked to specifically support tuition assistance, and also supports academic scholarships awarded annually to exceptional students for higher academic pursuits.

With a tuition cost of $500, over 50% of our Academy students apply for financial assistance based on need and academic qualifications.
