Mentoring Academy is an independent school deriving its operating funds from tuition and gifts. The base tuition varies based on family income, with a maximum of thirty-one thousand dollars for the 2020-21 academic year. Tuition includes expenses for all materials, local school travel, admission to events, instruction, much of the cost of the Extra-ordinary Travel Program and access to Internet resources. Tuition can be paid in monthly, or quarterly installments, or half at the beginning of each semester.


Each student is expected to have access to a reasonably recent laptop computer (preferably a Mac) for daily creative and Internet work.


Internet access is required from home for e-mail and Zoom classes.


If you wish to be considered for variable tuition, please submit your first two pages of the tax return for the last tax year and an estimated income/expenses worksheet for the year, and a brief summary of net worth.
