  • Financial Aid

    At Miss CEO our mission is to empower girls of all socio-economic backgrounds and we are proud to offer financial aid and scholarships for qualifying students. Aid is granted based upon need, as well as other factors including merit. Families who feel they cannot cover the full cost of tuition are encouraged to apply. The largest awards made assume full need but still require a minimum contribution from the family. Financial Aid requests are expected to far exceed the amount of funds available; therefore we cannot guarantee that the full amount requested will be met. A student's acceptance into the program will not be contingent on their financial aid request. Students will be notified of their aid award along with their letter of acceptance. Financial aid form can be found below.

  • Cancellation Policy

    Cancellations prior to October 4, 2017 will qualify for a 90% tuition refund. Cancellations prior to October 14th will qualify for a 50% tuition refund. Refunds will not be available within three weeks from the start of the program.
