This year, our tours are just as diverse and we plan to visit a significant number of institutions of higher education. Active and engaged scholars and their families have the first priority to attend these tours. Non-refundable deposits will be required.

Our College Bound tours are customized and designed for our scholars and their parents/guardians and/or responsible adults.  We also open the college tours to family and friends of like mind.  A $200 non-refundable deposit is due in January and those committed to attending work together and help families fundraise and/or seek sponsorships.
