Financial Aid

Other Educational Opportunities

Students also ask us about other educational opportunities beyond Joyce Ivy supported summer academic programs. Here are some ideas, shared with us by students, families, educators, and volunteers.

Semester Programs

Many of these programs offer need-based financial aid. Students typically spend a semester during junior (or sometimes senior) year studying with other students from across the country.

Foreign Language Study

Secondary School Summer Programs

Many independent secondary schools offer summer programs that bring together students from all over the country — in some cases, the world — to engage in academic study, athletics and social activities. There is financial aid available for many of these programs.
