I've heard about HOBY on this forum and decided to look it up. So there's going to be a new HOBY Advanced Leadership Academy (fancy name ) around the beginning of March. However, it costs $875 to attend EXCLUDING transportation (air fare, ground fare). I have heard good things about HOBY, but isn't $875 for a "leadership academy" a bit excessive ? I've had thoughts that this might be one of those "Who's Who" and "National Honor Society of High School Scholars" type of deal where you pay money and not get anything out of it. Any thoughts anyboody?
