Dates & Tuition

COVID-19 Update

At National History Academy, the health and safety of our students, staff, and families is our highest priority. We are carefully monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, just as we are sure each of you are. Our program is still some months away, so it is too early to know what the full impact will be at this time.

Whether we are able to host students in person this summer or not, we are fully committed to providing a dynamic summer experience, either on campus or online.

At this time, we still encourage students to complete an application. Please know that submitting an application does not constitute a financial obligation, and no deposit will be required. If the program ultimately moves to an online format, any deposit or tuition already paid will be refunded.

We will continue to follow all federal and local guidelines as COVID-19 progresses, and will notify all applicants if the delivery method of the course changes. We will also post updates on this website.

Please stay safe.
