When combined with other financial aid, The Cazenovia Commitment lowers the average cost of attendance (including tuition, room, board and fees) to less than $20,000.Learn more about The Cazenovia Commitment

Vernon-Verona-Sherrill students learned techniques in cartooning, figure drawing and explored exquisite masks.
