Enrollment and Tuition

“Thank you so much for Alex’s wonderful week at campusNYC! He did not stop talking about the great experience he had, and would definitely love to return next year.  He especially enjoyed getting to know you and told me about all the wonderful talks you two had. I knew this program would be a great fit for him and I am pleasantly surprised at just how much he got out of it. He enjoyed working with the Chefs very much and made friends with many of the other campers. He is looking forward to coming back next year and said he would love to attend a two week session.” – Take care, Nadia (2018 Parent)

“My favorite thing about evening events was visiting Chinatown and Little Italy because we get to see different ethnic cuisines and diversity.” – Olivia (2017 student)

“Besides the kitchen, the movie and the Barton Springs were my favorite because they gave me a chance to see Austin and the city”– 2021 campusATX student
