The school calendar includes activities, trips, and tours that are planned as meaningful options in addition to the regular Academy program. Because student involvement in these classes/experiences is optional, the cost of each activity is borne by the student participants through fees paid by check or cash, calculated for each activity. Note: A tour/trip is a requirement for some classes (e.g., band, bells, Silhouettes, Orion Strings, educational, and outdoor ed tour classes, etc.).

A list of these charges is published annually with the full Schedule of Fees. >> DOWNLOAD FORM
