Unless you are homeschooled, you apply through your school. Most schools use the online application, but there is also an option to print a paper version. Applications include answering some questions about why you want to be a part of this experience, and also require references from teachers or mentors. You can save your application in the middle if you don't have time to finish in one sitting.
Applications for GIA 2015 can be found right here!
And remember: tuition is on a sliding scale to make GIA affordable for all Vermont families. What that means is that the amount you pay will be based on your ability to pay, and admission decisions are made independently of a candidate's financial need. We have also had students raise money to come to GIA from their local Lions/Rotary/Elks clubs, local businesses, and PTA groups. We're happy to brainstorm with you if money is an issue - we want you here!
We are here to answer any questions you may have about the process, and about the Institute itself. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
