Additional Fees:

In addition to the uniform fee noted above, cadets may be charged for fees related to routine administration of medication or treatment provided by the Academy's infirmary staff. Fees may apply to off-campus transportation. Replacement or supplemental uniform items will be charged to a cadet's account as needed.

Off-campus entertainment excursions and discretionary extracurricular activities are not covered in the basic tuition fees. Activities typically range from $10-$50 per event, but may be more for special social events. Cadets' accounts are charged for these activities when they register for the event.

The Academy provides parents with the opportunity to establish an allowance account for their son. These accounts allow your cadet to charge necessities and school supplies in the Cadet Store and to purchase refreshments in the Goomba Grill, which is located on the Riverside campus. Questions?
