Application Instructions

VISIONS begins accepting applications in October. There is no deadline to apply, but keep in mind that some trips may fill as early as February.

Please read through our Terms and 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.

  1. Contact Information. This includes contact details for participant and parent/guardian(s).
  2. 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. No family members, please.
  3. 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.
  4. Application Fee. The application fee is $50. It is non-refundable and not applied toward tuition.

VISIONS alumni and designated scholarship recipients do not need to submit references or the application fee. Scholarship recipients include those who have applied for and received financial aid, whether through VISIONS or a partner organization.

Once accepted to your VISIONS program of choice, parents must submit an Enrollment Contract and Health & Behavior Form. Applications before March 1st require an $800 trip deposit, and applications March 1st or later require tuition paid in full.

Please be in touch with any questions. We can be contacted at or by phone at 406.551.4423.
