Frequently Asked Questions

List of 14 frequently asked questions.

  • How do I apply?

    Applications are open now and are reviewed on a rolling basis. You will receive a decision 3-4 business days after submission. Once accepted, registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and is not confirmed until you have completed the registration process and submitted payment in full.

    Spaces are limited. Registration for all programs will close on Friday, May 19. 
  • Is there a minimum number of students required for a workshop or program to run? 

    Yes, each workshop/program requires a minimum number of students to run. If your daughter enrolls in a workshop that does not meet the minimum enrollment to run, we will contact you to suggest an alternative. If you do not wish to enroll in the alternate class, you will have the option to withdraw, and your tuition for that week will be refunded. 
  • What should I expect from a summer workshop?

    Archer Summer’s workshops aim to enrich and inspire each student’s curiosity and passion for knowledge. Workshops provide hands-on opportunities for students to create and pursue academic and artistic enrichment under the mentorship of expert faculty. 
  • Are there waitlists for the programs that are listed as sold out?

    If you have submitted an application and find that the program you are interested in is sold out on the registration page, please email archersummer@archer.org to be added to the waitlist. 
  • Does my daughter have to take the bus? 

    Yes, all students are required to arrive and depart via bus. Transportation fees are included in the tuition.

    Bus routes will be shared as soon as possible once registration has closed, but no later than June 5. 
  • What if my daughter has an appointment during Archer Summer hours and needs to arrive late or be picked up early?

  • What are your COVID-19 health and safety protocols?

    Archer Summer will comply with all federal, state, and local safety guidelines. If the Los Angeles County Department of Health protocols change, Archer will revise its policies. We encourage families to engage in practices to limit exposure to COVID-19. Currently, wearing a mask is optional.
  • What should my daughter wear to Archer Summer?

    Students should wear comfortable clothing that is appropriate for school and okay to get messy. Most of the program will be held outdoors, so students should dress in layers appropriate for the weather. Students should wear close-toed shoes - no sandals or flip-flops.
  • What should my daughter bring to Archer Summer?

    Students should bring a refillable water bottle, sunscreen, lunch, and two snacks each day. (Lunch and snacks are also available for purchase in our Servery.) All items should be labeled with the student's first and last name.
  • Do you offer financial aid?

    Unfortunately, we do not offer financial aid for summer programs.

    Unfortunately, we are unable to provide make-up days. Students who need to miss a day or two can still enroll at full tuition.
  • What is your refund policy?

    If you have enrolled your daughter, you may withdraw from the program, but there are no refunds. There are no exceptions other than those noted below.

    Archer Summer 2023 offers in-person programs at our beautiful outdoor campus, following all state and local guidelines. Should local health and safety guidelines advise that an in-person program is no longer recommended, we are prepared to shift to an online program. If the in-person program shifts to online only, you will have the option to withdraw with all tuition refunded. 

    All Archer students are required to arrive and depart via bus. Bus routes will be determined after registration closes. If the bus route assigned to you for Archer Summer does not meet your needs, you will have the option to withdraw with all tuition refunded. In order to qualify for this refund, you must notify Archer Summer of your intent to withdraw within 48 hours after bus routes are announced.
