Our goal is to provide students with an enriching and engaging curriculum that includes, guest professionals and experts, field trip experiences, and leadership opportunities.
For the 2020-2021 school year, we will admit 24-26 full-time students.
Full-time Day Students
Tuition is $7100 for the year, and this includes money for field trips and outings. After a student applies, has an interview, and is accepted, a $1000 deposit will secure their spot. Parents can pay the remaining tuition in one payment, semester payments, or monthly payments.
Full-Time Boarding Students
For those who do not live in the valley, there are local host families to provide housing and cultural immersion for students interested in attending the Paonia Experiential Leadership Academy. Full-time tuition, supplies, transport, a room, and board with a local family is $18,000. Once accepted, a $3000 deposit will secure their spot. The remaining fee is $1500 a month for 10 months.
