Financial Aid

For parents of 9th - 11th graders:

If you are planning to send your child to college in the next 4-years, there are critical financial factors and changes you should be aware of now.  Reserve your seat for this important parent meeting.   

Learn why some families vastly overpay for college, yet others increase eligibility for grants, scholarships, and aid - regardless of income or assets - by tens of thousands of dollars per year.  Don't make the mistake of assuming you won't qualify. 

Learn about leveraging your resources to reduce college costs. 

Families who educate themselves and plan a few years ahead get more aid and take on less debt!
