    It is my dream to go to a boarding school. I consider myself a good student, since i have an A+ average and I’m also involved in clubs and sports in my school. However, my parents cant afford a boardin school for me. I’ve reaseached many of them, but all they have are financial plans, not scholarships based on grades and so on. I’d like to know if there’s any way for me to get a scholarship in a boarding school by taking some sort of test or something? I would really appreciate it if you could email me at at anytime. My name is Stephanie, and I’m a freshman in high school.
