Medical Physician Preparation (MPP) Academy

A Division of the NAPCA Foundation

We are committed to building a diverse pipeline of future medical doctors, as early as 4th grade, that is more representative of the U.S. population.


Tuition Cost Will Be Waived for 2022 & 2023 Cohorts

The NAPCA Foundation has provided a generous two year grant to the MPP Academy to waive the tuition cost for those students admitted to our 2022 and 2023 cohorts with a demonstrated financial need.

Given the impact of COVID-19 on many families, our hope is to remove the financial barrier for those families in need by waiving the tuition cost to participate in NAPCA’s Medical Physician Preparation (MPP) Academy.

Commuter vs. Commuter Extended

Commuter refers to students participating in the academic program from 8am-5pm each day. Commuter Extended refers to the commuter day program plus additional time, 5pm-7pm. The Commuter Extended day program gives commuter students the opportunity to participate in evening activities such as social and recreational group activities and have dinner in the University dining hall with residential students and MPP Academy staff.

The extended option also aids parents who are not able to pick up their children at 5:00 pm. Commuter and commuter extended students are responsible for the cost of travel to and from the program as well as individual spending money for souvenirs during college tours, medical school tours, and other program activities.

Residential students

Residential students live on campus and are responsible for housing, meals, and any other living expenses. Students are responsible for the cost of travel to and from the program as well as individual spending money for personal hygiene needs, laundry, and souvenirs.

  • Elementary students will have an opportunity to live on-campus in the freshman dorms during the “last weekend” of the 4 week summer intensive program.
  • Parents are welcome to live on campus and serve as a volunteer chaperone. Space is limited.
