Fees for 2020

Application Fee?

There is no application fee.

Program Fee

List price for MathPath 2020 has been finalized at $5100. However, most families pay less than the list price due to financial aid scholarships (including full scholarships) and discounts.

The program fee includes tuition, room, board, transportation from/to the designated airport while arriving/departing, one camp hat, one camp shirt, one copy of the yearbook and all all-camp activities. It does not include travel to and from your home, nor the cost of optional weekend trips. Students who apply and are admitted early should be able to get lower air fares. It has been reported that the best time to book flights is 1 am EST on Wednesdays.

Tax considerations. Sometimes child care expenses get favorable tax treatment. However, we have concluded that no part of your fee for MathPath is eligible for US federal tax credits or deductions as a child care expense. In particular, no part of your fee can be paid out of a pretax Dependent Care Flexible Savings Account, so please do not plan to put money into such a "use it or lose it" account to pay for MathPath.

Payment Methods. Our preferred method is to receive paper checks. Payment by credit card, PayPal or similar services is not allowed. The charge for these services is too much for our lean budget. Electronic payment by ACH (Automated Clearing House) is fine if your bank offers you this option. From other countries, we recommend an international bank draft, that is, a check in US dollars provided by your bank with the name of a US bank at which it is payable. It is also possible to wire money from other countries, but wires involve several high fees, from your bank, from our bank and even from intermediary banks. You will need to pay all these fees.

In any event, payments are not accepted until after a student is admitted, at which time we will happily provide details of the different payment methods.
