VISIONS begins accepting applications in October for the following summer. There is no deadline for applying, but some trips fill as early as February.
Please read through our Terms & Conditions, including the Application Process, to understand VISIONS rules and expectations.
The application is straightforward and consists of four steps for anyone who is new to VISIONS.
- Contact Information. This includes contact details for participant and parent/guardian(s).
- References. We require the name and email address of two adults who will be contacted as references. At least one must be a school contact, and the other may be a personal reference or second school reference.
- Participant Questionnaire. The questionnaire typically takes 5 to 15 minutes to complete. For parents who are completing the other steps of the application, this step may be skipped and we will then email the questionnaire to the participant to be completed within one week.
- Application Fee. The application fee is $50. It is non-refundable and not applied toward tuition.
If you are applying for financial aid, please do so here.
Once accepted to your VISIONS program, parents submit an Enrollment Contract and Health & Behavior Form. Applications before March 15th require an $800 trip deposit, and applications March 15th or later require tuition paid in full. Some locations may require additional activity waivers that will be provided to registered participants, and emergency evacuation insurance is required for all participants. Evacuation insurance is provided by Redpoint Resolutions and the cost ($90) will be added to the cost of tuition.
VISIONS alumni do not need to submit references or the application fee.
