Tuition for Global Citizen Academy

We are pleased to offer a sliding scale model for Global Citizen Academy.

We ask that you pay at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford. This allows others who need to pay less the opportunity to attend. Please read on for further details regarding each level of the sliding scale, to help you select the price that best suits your family’s circumstance. We also recognize that for many families, the information represented in their FAFSA or CSS Profile may not represent the reality of your situation, especially in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis.

Above $200,000 $7500
$150,000-199,000 $4000
$100,000-$149,000 $1500

*To ensure that this tier is reserved only for families with demonstrated financial need, we request that you submit your FAFSA Student Aid Report upon selection of this tuition tier. If you are an international applicant selecting this tier, please instead complete the CSS Profile and send it electronically to Global Citizen Year (CSS code 5314).

Thanks to the support of our donors, Global Citizen Academy has a generous financial aid pool, but depending on demand we cannot guarantee the availability of aid as the application period progresses. We encourage students to apply early while financial aid is most available.
