What is the cost of tuition for Wayfinding Academy?
Wayfinding Academy strives to offer an affordable college experience. Tuition is $11,000 per year for our 2 year program. We work diligently with each student to craft a payment plan that fits their individual needs and financial situation. We strongly believe finances should not be a barrier for anyone who want to come to Wayfinding. PLEASE do not let the tuition cost deter you from applying - we can work with most any budget to create a custom plan for you. And for those who demonstrate financial need, we have scholarships available that are usually between $1,000 and $2,500 off tuition each year.
What other expenses can I expect?
Every student’s experience will be slightly unique, but you can anticipate additional expenses for normal cost of living including room and board, transportation, and other personal costs. These costs can vary depending on a variety of factors, such as if you're living at home, moving across the country, have a car, if you eat out or not, personal lifestyle habits, etc. Most of our students have been able to find housing in the neighborhoord or within a 20 minute drive for less than $700/month in a shared house situation.
Also, during our breaks three times a year (December, April and August), students will have an opportunity to participate in Learn + Explore trips or other experiences designed specifically by them. These trips or other experiences may have fees associated with them and students will have the option of signing up for them.
Do you offer scholarships?
Yes! We have several donors who contribute to a scholarship fund each year and we are always working on growing the pool of scholarships we offer. Right now our scholarships typically range from about $1,000 to $2,500 off tuition per year. To be eligible for a Wayfinding Academy scholarship, students must first submit a completed application and indicate their desire to be considered for a scholarship. After we invite you to join us as a student you will be given a financial assessment to complete which gives us information to determine your financial need and level of scholarship to offer.
