We recently received a great question from a young man and we think his question, and our reply, are post worthy.
His question made us think and a few families and students may benefit from our reply.
The young man’s question (paraphrased as it’s a full paragraph):
I come from a low income family. My parents want what’s best for me and are trying to make sure I get the best education possible. I’m a B+, 10th grader. I, and my parents, are interested in boarding school for me. My current school is in a poor environment. Are there schools with scholarships for kids like me?
I won’t waste the opportunity. Thank you.
Yes. There are some great boarding schools dedicated to providing opportunities to families and students with limited resources. Here are four boarding schools to consider.
These schools practice an overt commitment to providing boarding school opportunities to students who have limited resources; they share the common commitment of making a boarding school education possible.
Each each has unique admission criteria and they vary in competitiveness. Each evaluates students differently and you’ll need to do your research to see which might be the best fit.
In no particular order:
This quick list is by no means inclusive; it’s truly off the top of our heads and I’m sure we may have missed a school(s).
If you know of boarding school committed to opportunity and affordability by all means leave a comment and/or send us a note.
