Tuition

Overview

A middle school student smiling at the great rates of Williamsburg tuition

The cost of tuition is a valuable investment in the future of your student.

At Williamsburg, our live, interactive, and rigorous approach to online learning more closely resembles the high-caliber experience you would expect from a top private school than what you might expect from a typical online school. Our students have meaningful relationships both with each other and with world-class mentors who give them the personal attention they need to excel. They leave Williamsburg prepared with knowledge and skills that empower them to be leaders in the 21st century.

All of our courses are priced individually, so students can choose to take just one or two courses or a full course load. This à la carte model gives students the flexibility to choose exactly the courses they want or need. The on-time registration deadline, which is usually 2-4 weeks before the start date of each semester, is posted on our School Calendar. After the on-time registration deadline, tuition for all courses increases by 7%.

Satisfaction Guarantee


Williamsburg Academy has a 21-calendar-day satisfaction guarantee. We will refund 100 percent of tuition for dissatisfied students within the guarantee period. We want students to have the opportunity to experience courses and make sure they are a good fit.

Refund Policy

Dissatisfied students will receive a full refund within 21 calendar days of the first day of each semester or course. No refunds will be given after 21 days.  Students who withdraw from a course before the last day of midterms will receive a “W” on their transcript (does not affect GPA). Students who withdraw from a course after midterms will be awarded whatever grade they’ve earned to that point in the semester.

Elevation Refund Policy

Due to the unique nature of the Elevation outdoor course, our normal refund policy and satisfaction guarantee do not apply. Refunds for Elevation are available 30 days prior to the first day of each Elevation session. No refunds will be given for cancellations inside 30 days. This is because we incur the costs for Elevation several weeks ahead, and are not able to recoup these costs inside the 30 day window.
