Compass Tuition and Dates

Work Study

Compass students will work alongside camp staff at Cho-Yeh approximately 15-20 hours per week, which can be used to offset the overall cost of the program to cover part of their tuition expense. This also offers hands-on experience, provides lifeguard certification, High Ropes training, leadership development, and is a lot of fun!

As part of the immersive discipleship program, you will live with other Compass students and cook community meals together, as well as attend classes and community-building activities.
