A student's previous school record will be utilized in determining whether the Academy can meet his or her needs.

Tuition and Fees

Tuition fees are established on a yearly basis and are subject to change. A payment plan must be arranged by each family prior to commencement of the school year. Grades and transcripts will be issued only to those whose payments are current. Failure to pay all tuition fees may also jeopardize continued enrollment. Applications for financial aid/tuition assistance may be requested from the

business office at Tyburn Academy.

 

Tuition Policy

Parents are contractually responsible for a full year’s tuition and fees. If a student is unable to complete a school year for any reason, the Board of Directors will determine the financial obligations still owed to the school. If tuition payments and fees are not paid up to date at the time report cards

are issued each quarter, then grades will be withheld until payment is received. All accounts, both tuition and fees, must be cleared before the last day of school, or students will not receive grades

or transcripts.

International Students

Since 2003, Tyburn has played host to 45 exchange students from 16 different countries all over the world.  Most recently, the students have come through International Fellowship, one of over 300 organizations which place foreign students in high schools throughout the United States.

 

Students who come range in age from 15-18.  Some have finished high school at home; others leave Tyburn after a year of study and return to finish school in their home countries.  All must have studied English, and are required to take a full course of study here. They must go through a strict application process, and pass a series of interviews, take an English test, and have letters of recommendation.  English and American History are required of all exchange students.  They are also required to integrate fully into their American schools, participating in clubs and athletics, and at Tyburn, in Community Service.  All exchange students at Tyburn, regardless of age, are placed with the Senior Class so that they may participate in senior class activities and be part of our graduation ceremony.  Ten of the 45 students who have studied at Tyburn have returned to the United States to attend college, at such universities as Michigan, Rice, Brigham Young, Indiana, Wisconsin, TCU and Wells.

 

Exchange students are placed with host families for the year.  Host families may have children at Tyburn, but it is not necessary; several of the exchange students have been placed with families which have no children, grown children, or children at other schools.  Host families must go through an application process and background check.  It is very important that the school and host families understand that the students are not treated as guests, but are totally integrated into their families, participating in family meals, household chores, holidays, religious observances, and other activities.   Exchange students pay all their own personal expenses; host families are responsible only for room and board.

 

Through the customs and ideas that the exchange students bring to Tyburn, our students have had their eyes opened to both similarities and differences between our country and those in Europe, Asia, and Central and South America.

 

If your family would like to hear more about hosting an exchange student, please contact Mrs. Barbara Murphy, Area Representative for International Fellowship, at 729-2319.
