A Podcast Conversation About Affording Private School in an Economic Downturn
Addressing the admissions notification and financial aid season, we produced a podcast today discussing financial aid in tight times.
Peter spoke with Martin Peyer, CEO of Tuition Data Services and Jamie Miller, Director of Financial Aid at the Blue Ridge School. They explored financial aid and tuition payment strategies for families as they make their private school commitment for 2009-2010.
Suggestions to families include:
Opening a dialog with admission and financial aid officers at the start of the application process
Prepare to document your financial condition
Explore tuition payment plans and lending options
Ask the financial aid officers about resources. They know the foundations and sources interested in supporting their students.
Please share their commentary and suggestions as we work through then enrollment and financial aid process in this difficult environment. The episode is available below, through our Boarding School Podcast directory or AQ’s iTunes channel.
