With the addition of the net price calculators that each institution is required to have on their websites, families can use their financials to get a sense of the total cost for each institution. The results can be surprising as some institutions have large endowments, that can put together very generous financial aid packages. The College Counseling office hosts a Financial Aid night early in the school year, to assist families who are beginning the college process. Our counselors are there for you to have candid conversations about the rising cost of college and how to combat it within the application process.

Another important place to look, is the employer of parents, grandparents or relatives. Some companies have scholarship opportunities for family members.
