Policies

Our Cancellation Policy

We understand that summer plans can change, and we want to minimize the cost of cancellation for you. However, as a fundraiser, we need to make sure that we are in fact raising money - and once we make our investments in staff and resources, we have taken on a cost. Before May 1, we offer a 95% refund. Before June 1, we offer a 50% refund, and before July 1 we offer a 25% refund. If you plan to cancel a registration, please inform us through email as soon as possible.

Financial Aid

Though proceeds from the program go directly to support the high school's debate team, we want to make sure that every student can afford to attend the Institute. If your child qualifies for free/reduced lunch, please email us to discuss a reduced registration cost.
