Student Life

Everything you need to know

Housing

The community created by living on campus is a major part of Youth America College. All students will be housed on the Youth America campus. Each dorm will be supervised by a Resident Advisor and our staff. We have several student life events throughout the year designed to make life on campus an unforgettable experience.

The cost of housing is $1,800 per year (paid in full upon arrival at Youth America College) and includes the following:

  • Free on-site laundry facilities
  • Bed frame and twin mattress
  • Student Center
  • Computer Lab
  • Use of commercial kitchen

Schedule*

Schedule is subject to change. Students are encouraged to hold a part-time job while attending Youth America College. There will be approximately 20 hours per week outside of regularly weekly scheduled activities for students to work. During the summer season of Youth America, all students will be serving on the camp staff in various capacities. Due to the time commitment necessary, students will be unable to hold part-time jobs during camp season
