Once the Director of Talent Identification and the Union Academy Director has conferred with the Head of School regarding talent level and academic potential, the family will be contacted by YSC with an application as well as a link to a financial aid form. (We use the School & Student Services form created by the National Association of Independent Schools.) Once the application is completed and the SSS form is submitted, we will be able to establish a family’s financial contribution level and proceed with the scholarship and financial aid process.
It is our goal to enable student-athletes to attend our academy who could not do so without this award. We grant our financial aid awards based on demonstrated financial need as determined by the SSS form. We trust that, in partnership with us, our families are contributing as much as possible to enable their son(s) to attend school at YSC.
For the 2020-2021 school year, the cost of tuition and fees is $35,000. Fees include a Chromebook, books, standardized tests, school supplies, and substantial snacks. Families are asked to provide a daily lunch for their students, as well as a backpack and the requisite soccer gear for twice-daily training. This does not reflect residency or transportation if offered by the Union Academy; those should be discussed directly with the Union Academy.
