Room & Board

SOCAPA offers a housing option at all of our campuses and a full cafeteria meal plan in Vermont and Los Angeles. Students can stay right on campus in the host university’s residence halls which have lounges, computer rooms, and laundry facilities. In Vermont and Los Angeles, residential students eat most of their meals at the campus cafeteria. Once per session, we take the whole group off campus and out for dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. Our Room & Board Fee includes double or triple occupancy housing, night and weekend activities (including transportation, tickets and supervision) and three meals per day, Monday through Friday, except at our Manhattan campus (see below). On weekends, depending on the campus, students may be responsible for purchasing some or all of their meals. Please refer to the campus-specific information below.

Students at our Manhattan Campus are responsible for purchasing their own meals.

For the first three days of the session, our counselors will guide students to some of our favorite places to eat. After that, students may sign out in small groups and explore the culinary options in the East Village together. They must always be in small groups, never alone.

Upon arrival we will greet you at the baggage claim area for your flight wearing a SOCAPA t-shirt and holding a sign with your name on it, then travel back to campus with you from the airport. At the end of your program, we will help you check-in at your airline's check-in counter; unfortunately we cannot escort you beyond security unless you are an unaccompanied minor as designated by the airline. Unaccompanied minor service is not provided at SOCAPA's NYC campus.

Unaccompanied Minors

(Not available at NYC Campuses)


Unaccompanied Minor service is a one-way, $150 fee purchased through your airline for children flying alone. Most airlines do not require this service for children 14 and up. We highly encourage any student over the age of 14 to NOT fly as an Unaccompanied Minor. If you do opt to travel as an Unaccompanied Minor, it is very important that you notify SOCAPA that you have purchased the service from your airline. We will be able to inform you of the name of the person who will be picking your child up the Friday before your arrival date, but not before.

In addition to the fee paid to the airline, there is a $100 SOCAPA fee.

Day Student Meals & Activities Fee

Day students are charged an additional Meals and Activities Fee at a weekly rate at each campus. The fee covers the cost of lunches in the cafeteria, our opening night dinner, plus any tickets or entrance fees for class or extracurricular activities in LA and Burlington. In NY, day students do not participate in evening extracurriculars.
