Applying to Your Extraordinary Saturday


MITY seeks applicants who demonstrate both academic talent and a passion for learning. Students must be in grades 1 – 4 to be considered for admission. All requested materials (application and report card/grades) are considered.


There is no deadline for applying; however, classes fill fast, so we encourage parents to submit their applications as soon as possible. Decisions are made on a rolling basis. 

Application Process

  1. Complete the Online Application.  (The application for fall session will be posted on September 1.)
  2. Upload Report Card: We know that report cards for this age group take on many forms; all forms are accepted. You can upload grades with the application or email them to
  3. Pay Tuition or Submit Financial Aid Form. Payment (or an application for financial aid) is required in order for an application to be reviewed.  Payment can be made while completing the application, by using the form above, or by mailing a check payable to MITY to: MITY, 1600 Grand Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55105.  Students who are not accepted will receive a full refund.
  4. Acceptance Email from MITY.  Once MITY receives all materials and tuition payment, you will receive an official confirmation email.  Please allow two weeks for MITY to review your completed application.

Refund Policy

MITY hires its teachers based on student enrollment in each course; therefore, we are unable to provide refunds to students who cancel within 7 days of the session start date.

For additional information, please see the table below:

Prior to 30 days of session start date 100% refund
15-29 days prior to session start date 50% refund
8-14 days prior to session start date 25% refund
Within 7 days prior to session start date No refund

If MITY cancels a course before it begins, students will be placed into their second-choice class. Refunds are not provided once a session begins. In the unlikely event that MITY terminates a course during the session, MITY will consider the circumstances and may, at its sole discretion, issue a partial refund or credit.
