NOTE: For students for whom the non-refundable application fee presents a financial hardship, we will be glad to accept a printed copy of the paper application (which can be downloaded in PDF from the Forms page) along with an official fee-waiver form signed by the high school counselor. If you have questions about fee-waivers, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For details, see the Applying Online page.
