In addition to the base tuition to attend our summer programs, the following charges apply:
Damage Deposit: Upon enrollment, EXPLO collects a standard damage deposit of $100 per student. The deposit is used to offset any charges incurred for damage to a student’s room, furnishings, or pro-rated shares of extraordinary damage to common facilities in the dormitories. Families may be charged if a student’s room is left in a state of disarray. Parents/guardians are responsible for any damage beyond the deposit. If there is no damage or balance due, the Damage Deposit will be refunded by late September 2021.
Miscellaneous Account: Miscellaneous Account funds are used to cover any elective trips chosen by the student, sundries, lost keys or ID cards, lost POM Contact Tracers, additional meals where applicable, and COVID testing as needed. This account can be supplemented by parents/guardians at any time. If a student has a low balance or overdraws this account, our Main Office will contact the parent/guardian listed on the account to arrange payment. All unused amounts, except those covered by a scholarship, will be returned by late September 2021.
2021 Miscellaneous Account fees per session:
- Grades 4–7: $450 (per 3-week session)
- Grades 8–10: $450 (per 3-week session)
- Grades 10–12: $350 (per 2-week session)
COVID Surcharge Fee: Keeping students safe and healthy in the age of COVID requires diligent planning and adapting our operations in several areas. This supplemental fee covers additional staffing for enhanced cleaning, supervision, and medical support, as well as costs associated with the procurement of PPE, additional cleaning and sanitizing materials, additional equipment (hand sanitizing stations, thermometers, signage), an expanded health center, and a lower density in residence halls, classrooms, and other facilities. The surcharge fee is $150 per session.
