No personal checks will be accepted for tuition balance after June 1.  Students may not attend without the tuition paid in full.

Scholarships and Financial Aid

Because this is an educational program, some students may qualify for local scholarships and community support. Consult guidance counselors or local reference librarians for suggestions.

AIO offers a very limited number of scholarships for each session. These funds are allocated at the discretion of the Executive Director and are based on need and merit.  These scholarships, up to $400 for the one week or up to $750 for the two week sessions, require two teacher recommendations and submission of the scholarship application.  Contact the executive director for additional information and availability.

Sibling Discounts

Sibling discounts are available for families sending multiple students to AIO. The second child from the same family attending during the same summer will receive $400 if attending the one week session or $750 if attending a two week session.
