"SLIYS was super fun this year! Even though it was on Zoom, I still got to make a bunch of new friends."

SLIYS 2024 Dates
SLIYS I is being offered twice in 2024: June 10 - 14 and July 8 - 12.
SLIYS II is also being offered twice: June 24 - 28 and July 15 - 19.
You may apply to just SLIYS I, to both SLIYS I and SLIYS II, or just to SLIYS II if you have completed SLIYS I in a previous year.
Check back in early 2024 for details about applying to our 2024 program. You may sign up to be notified when the application becomes available.
Application Deadline and Review
Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis beginning in late February. An application for SLIYS I will not be reviewed until the teacher recommendation is submitted.
All application materials (the application form, and for SLIYS I, the teacher recommendation form) must be received by May 8. Note that some sessions may fill prior to this deadline, so early application is encouraged.
Payment for SLIYS
Tuition for each week of SLIYS is $525. Accepted applicants will pay a non-refundable deposit of $25 within two weeks of being accepted to reserve their spot. Failure to pay a deposit may result in forfeiture of the student's spot in the program.
The deadline for full payment ($25 + $500 for one session, or $25 + $1025 for both SLIYS I and II) is May 15. Students accepted after May 1 should send in the full payment and forgo the deposit process.
