TUITION — This fee covers instruction and room and board. It does not include spending money, special medical care beyond the facilities of the infirmary, driver’s education, flying lessons, or willful destruction of property. Parents are billed a $25 handling fee on a monthly basis for laundry and dry cleaning that exceeds $100 per month. Parents are billed on a monthly basis for extra charges incurred.


The cost of operating the Academy must be budgeted on an annual basis. For this reason cadets are accepted the entire school year, and upon entrance a valid and binding contract is in force for the entire school year. In the event of dismissal or withdrawal, the balance of growth and other charges, less credits, becomes immediately due and payable. Credit of only $1000.00 per month will be given for that portion of the school year the student is not in attendance.

Additionally, because the Academy’s budget is tuition driven, payments are required in a timely fashion. Any payment not received in the Academy’s business office by the date due will be assessed a $10.00 late charge. As stated in the contract, should any amount become delinquent, grades and transcripts will be held until the account is settled. Delinquent accounts may be forwarded to an outside agency for collection. Failure to make payments by the due date may result in a cadet’s separation.
