There is no expectation of military service following graduation.

The merit-based awards, ranging from $10,000 to $1,000 each year, will be applied to tuition and are renewable for all four years with good standing in JROTC. Learn more here.

Tuition Assistance

Families with financial need can fill out a TADS application for tuition assistance. Assistance is based on your unique situation. The application is due on February 15.

Work Study

We offer two work-study programs. Our concessions program allows families to work concessions at venues around the Twin Cities to defray tuition costs, while our student program allows students to earn tuition credit for work performed on campus. The concessions program depends on the event schedule at the venues, while the student program has been suspended during hybrid school. Both of these programs are expected to run as usual in the 2021-22 school year.
