Is there a tuition charge for CrossRoad?
Yes, for summer 2013 there is a tuition charge for the CrossRoad Summer Institute of $500 for the ten-day session.
Participant accommodations, meals, and activities related to CrossRoad are covered by the scholarship and partial tuition charge, although we recommend that students bring some spending cash for our outings into Boston. Travel arrangements to and from Hellenic College in Brookline are also the responsibility of the student. Home churches of participants are encouraged to help with tuition and travel costs and to have their student present or write on their experience after attending.
What if I cannot afford this tuition?
It is our CrossRoad policy that no accepted participant requesting tuition assistance will be turned away. The application process is “needs blind”; the acceptance process is independent of student financial need.
How do I apply for financial aid?
Students will be able to apply for financial aid after they have been accepted to the program. Accepted applicants will receive scholarship information with their acceptance letter.
Why is there a tuition charge for CrossRoad?
This $500 tuition charge represents less than 25% of the $2300 that it actually costs us to support each participant. This amount is in line with many of our Orthodox camping programs, and is well below other academic and leadership development programs hosted on college campuses. CrossRoad receives the support from the Archbishop Iakovos Leadership 100 Endowment Fund, Old Neighborhood Foods, the Virginia H. Farah Foundation, the Gerondelis Foundation, CrossRoad parents and alumni, and additional generous donors from the greater HCHC and Orthodox community. The $500 charge asks youth, their families and communities to invest with us. Funding CrossRoad is truly a collaborative initiative!
