The 2018 Early Bird is Soaring Majestically!

Winged majesty,

Soar on,

Fly thee homeward,

Look down upon fair Verona,

And spread happiness and tuition discounts in thy feathered wake.

“Ode to the Early Bird,” Anonymous (attributed by some to Ovid)

The poet’s words have never been more prescient – for, friends, Apogee’s Early Bird is a-flying once again!

The Early Bird: Here’s the low-down – if you apply for any 2018 Apogee program and pay the $795 trip deposit by the end of the day on Sunday, November 12, we will discount your tuition by $250. Yes, it really is that simple. New trips, classic trips, short trips, long trips – they all qualify. Additionally, you are welcome to switch programs at any point as long as we have availability. Multiple kids, multiple trips? No problem at all – the Early Bird will apply to all trips and all kids applying by November 12. The Early Bird is a no-risk affair, too – if, after applying, you decide that an Apogee trip just isn’t right for you or your child in 2018, you’re welcome to a full refund of your deposit anytime before December 31.

Application:  To fly with the Early Bird, please check out our 2018 offerings and complete an application here: (Alumni families – your application should pre-populate after you log in with last year’s information, making the application a breeze to complete.)
