  • k cook, how could your son get accepted into 3 top notch schools in NH? first off you have to take the ssat thats mandatory then secondly admission decisions do not come out until March 10 for all students. So you are telling me they gave you an on the spot decision? Please nobody knows if they are accepted until March 10 and thats all boarding schools across the country. And my daughter scored the same score as your son at age 10. my daughter is 11 in 8th grade but taking 11th grade classes in public high school so the same top notch schools flew all the way to indiana to see her and want her to but we all know acceptance letters for boarding schools dont come out until 3/10 period!!!!! cindy jones, January 2, 2009 8:52 AM

  • IT"S CALLLED PUBLIC SCHOOLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All of you think your kids are so amazing when there probably not. And you can get a perfectly good education at a public school. If you can't afford it, don't do it. This is why are country has so much debt, people spending money on things they can't afford. Florence, March 19, 2009 5:43 PM

  • Sometimes we as parents has to whats best for our kids....this is to Florence,,well Florence how about me and mine, we live in Detroit....you all know and have be hearing whats be going on in Detroit. The people here have stole our childrens money for school and now we are in a huge debt...they are now causing our children here to suffer by closing all the Detroit public schools...so my husband and i have no choice but to do whats best for or 4 boys.... and that is to send them to private school...and I for one is not ashame because all 3 of my older children have made the grades and deserve to go and if that means that if we as a family has to eat sandwiches ( not Peanut butter of course) than as a family thats what we will do....so many people have messed up others life with there greed and have left others to do what they have to do ( the right thing of course) to survive in this world. La'Tice, March 25, 2009 5:52 AM

  • Florence: If you think you can get a decent education at public schools, then you must live in a state with very good public schools. Unfortunately, there are quite a few states with horrible education systems. Victoria, March 26, 2009 9:28 AM

  • I am a single parent of a 14 year old. I do not feel that public schools can offer him the education that he needs to succeed in life. He attends a private Christian school that requires the best from all of the students. I am seeking information on where I can recieve financial assistance to help with his tuition. melba, March 27, 2009 6:50 PM

  • Hey Florence If you are trying to prove that public school provide a good education you went about it the wrong way. Example of how public school failed you: "All of you think your kids are so amazing when there probably not." There in this sentence should be spelled they're. "This is why are country has so much debt," This should be "this is why OUR country." Also you never start a sentence with "AND" You just prove why people are getting their children out of public school. You are taking more resources from the government by going to public school, who do you think pay all those teachers, supplies, sometimes lunch for your kids at the public school(That's right the government and other people's taxes). I have attended both public and private school in the US and swore that my children will never set foot in a public school. (By the way my 13 years old sister in private school corrected your mistakes) Rosie, March 29, 2009 7:47 AM

  • okay, I was reading what florence said, and she is totally wrong, I'm applying for boarding school and my parents can't pay for the tuition, and I'm applying because public school isn't helping. sure some public schools may be great, but most suck. at my school: -the teachers have no idea what they're talking about. - and there's 40 kids to a class. so, you obviously know nothing. mary Leahy, April 21, 2009 4:17 PM

  • Public schools with kids that hate each other. Public schools with kids who don't want to be there, harrassing the other student's and teaching staff. Public schools that think about the almighty buck first. Public schools are what America's famous for, but in the past couple decades, Public Schools have been what we are not famous for. Why are so many good, caring families seeking alternatives? They seek alternatives because they CARE, and they know that there is a better choice for their children!! Sara, July 20, 2009 10:32 AM

  • Hello I am also in need of help. I just recently got accepted into this private in the state of tn. It is a miracle I think. I need help with tuition because my mama can NOT afford it.

  • My son goes to a prepatory school, he has a few challenges when it comes to learning. I would like to try him in a private school but I don't know where to start. Financially, he has a scholarship for the prepatory school so I think it will transfer. Whats the best way to go about it? Christine P, August 1, 2009 12:33 AM

  • I think we all would like our kids to go to private school. I was looking for scholarships to "help" for my LDGT child because public schools do not teach or cater to "alternative learning" styles for children. I can't afford it, so we just adapt to public school, but then I see all these posts about people that Just want their kids to go to private schools just because they're "great" kids who deserve it. My reasons are for kids who are having trouble and need alternative teaching styles, smaller classrooms, and to help mitigate the abuse my child who's different has suffered at the hands of these "great" kids who are so deserving and bully, pick on, criticize, joke and torture my daughter because she's different. I think we need to take a good look at just what your precious little angels are reallylike and do they really "deserve it?" Sorry, that's for all the beautiful and charming teenage cheerleaders that walk around and trip a kid, ignore them, not talk to them because theyre not cool enough, and for the parents who allow their children to add to my daugther's depression and feelings of suicide. Let's think about people who have real problems for a chance and not create any more. audra, August 6, 2009 11:24 AM

  • Hi, I would love to send my 4 children to a private school. I am a housewife, my husband works but unfortunately it's not enough to cover the expense of a private school. We all want whats best for our children, We want them to get a good education! Unfortunately I'm in the LAUSD district, the schools API scores are not high! I feel like I'm stuck I want to put them in another district but I can because priority goes to the residents, etc... I would love for them to attend private school but I can't afford it! What do you suggest? Financial Aid, scholarships, Grants? I wish I could win the lottery. Please help what do you recommend? God Bless. Erica, August 14, 2009 2:33 AM

  • I'm just here wondering why parents are arguing back and forth instead of focusing on whats best for the kids. Each child is diff, everyones situation is diff, just focus on solutions and stop wasting time arguing. Melissa, August 23, 2009 4:18 PM

  • This is to Florence. I live in an area where public schools are a joke. I went to the school that my children are suppose to go to and I did not get a very good education. I didn't graduate High school for many years after I was suppose to. The Los Angeles Unified School District is the worst around. I wouldn't even let my enemies children come to these schools. My children are getting a much better education in private schools and I am in contact by email and telephone with all my kids teachers. I wouldn't have it anyother way. I have family member that even tell me that I am wasting my money. I do struggle every month to make ends meet but I don't care. My children will go to college and we will see how we will pay for that when we get there. Please, for this of you that swear by public schools, great! You had a good experience, but I didn't and neither did my husband. Pa, September 8, 2009 4:08 PM

  • Ok....let me fill you in. I'm a great student who goes to a PUBLIC SCHOOL.! Yes, public school it may be a great opportunity to get accepted into a private school...but, usually the case is alot of the students can be condescending snobs...thinking they're smarter than everyone else. Most of you who are begging for a scholarship to a PRIVATE SCHOOL(for children) probably don't need private school and guess what it wont get them noticed. My uncle is columbia alumni...in his words youre child will truly be noticed if they are smart. How can I put it more simple? Usually people that can afford to send their children to great private and boarding schools have smart children...and there can be alot of them. It's going to be hard for your child to be recognized as smart when he/she has to be top of the class out of atleast 300 students.Just do what you think is right for you children...............

  • Can anyone explain why does congress have money to buy personal statues of themselves fund shrimp and cow maneure research and whatever else they can come up with but there are limited funds for education and all the money that they are providing for education are going to schools that nobody seems to be happy with but the unions and the people in charge of dept. of edu, and the nat'l edu assoc. seem to be just sitting there collecting checks and maintaining low standards for the children in public schools systems. Why isn't there a united huge outcry to reform the school system instead of everyone trying to get out of it? miminunya, September 27, 2009 10:14 AM

  • Erica above who responded in august: You know why you don't deserve a scholarship? Because unlike many of us, you can actually afford to sit at home. The funds are limited, instead of trying to get them, continue to live off your husband's income for bills and get up, get out, become an EMPLOYEE, and use the income you make to pay for private school! Leave the funds for those of us who are divorced, widowed, displaced by Katrina, lost our jobs, and otherwise disadvantaged by circumstances outside our control! And the lifelong friendships that may seem cliquey to outsiders is exactly the type of permanent bond missing from today's fluid, ultra-transient societies. School is THE major socializing factor in a child's life after the family in the early years...don't you want to know the other authority set molding your child into who they will be for the rest of their lives is the best influence? Public is good if you can be in a top rated public school zone. But many times the rent or mortgage for such school zones is far outside the level we can afford and sometimes the zone is so far from "civilization" ...

  • In Boulder,Co. in the Abbey of The Sacred Heart of Mary Church and prior convent is a school called Bridge. It accepts students where they are and promotes Perseverance,Confidence,Knowledge in a nurturing environment.The class room sizes are 4-10, this being a middle/high school grades 6-12. They offer a sliding scale and scholarships are available from Alliance for School Coice which the Bridge school is a partner of. In 2010 only 30% of Public School Students will become independent and successful. This is a staggering statistic.Is your child one of these who will be able with the education to step to the plate with what the Public School system has given them? Check the school on their web site and make the move now. Another school year is slowly but surely winding down.BridgeSchoolBoulder.org Tracy O'Brien, January 21, 2010 11:55 AM

  • My son has been accepted into the honors program for a Catholic HS but we cannot get FA because we have been told we make 'too much". Tell that to my bill collectors. Does anyone know of a site I can go to attempt to find aid. It would be shame for him to pass on this opportunity. Plus we would really like for him to get a faith based education. We live in Somerset County NJ and the school is in Union County NJ. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My church told me the Diocese can't help because the school is not in there district. We are very discouraged by this. Mike S. Mike Santucci, January 27, 2010 4:45 PM

  • I'm a single mother of a four year old boy. He will be attending Kindergarten this fall. I am in the Military and we have recently been reassigned to Little Rock, Arkansas. Statistically, the schools here are terrible. I found a private school that seems to be the best option for my son. I'm sure he is just as smart as the next kid, but no matter what, he still deserves the best I can provide for him. It is my choice to keep my Military career because this is what pays the bills and "gives back" to our beautiful country, but I don't think his education should suffer. I've been looking everywhere I can think of to find financial help. I, like most of you, am not made of money. I was given this assignment by Uncle Sam and I'm honestly terrified that my son will end up with a terrible education. I am not here to argue or make judgements like some people seem to be doing. I would just like some answers. If anyone has any information about general private school scholarships/grants, or military scholarships/grants please reply. Thank you in advance for any helpful comments. Cassie, March 14, 2010 9:58 PM

  • I am emailing you in reference to a Scholar Athlete "Xavier Brown" that I have been mentoring since november. Xavier is a senior at Paul Robeson High School in West Philadelphia, a 4 year Varsity starter, 4 year cross country runner, and a 2 year debate member. Xavier currently holds a 3.7 grade point average, National Honor Society memeber, and is the Salutivictorian for his senior class; 2nd to a student with a 3.79 gpa. Xavier is one of the top players in the country his rank is 110 out of the top 150. Xavier has recently been recruited from many colleges/universities some to name are Penn, Columbia, Princeton, Bucknell, Lehigh, St. Francis Pa, New Hampshire, and he has offers from Harvard, Yale and Army. I have talked with him and he has goals to attend a higher university of learning, however Xavier doesn't have the Sat scores to get into a Harvard, or a Yale at the moment. I am currently trying to get him into a prep school some to name are Winchedon, Blair Academy, Hun School of Princeton, however I came across a Prep School coach named Vin Sparacio who coaches at Rise Academy and they've offered Xavier a starting spot. This opportunity would give Xavier the whole summer to do SAT prep to get the score he needs, practice/ train as well as play AAU basketball across the country and open up his recruitment as a reclassified senior. During september until may he would have the chance to compete on a prep school level where college coaches are at every game. His mother cannot afford to send him to a prep school so I am going out of my way to try to raise some money for this kid. The cost of Xavier's tuition would be $14,000 for the whole year at Rise Academy however the coach made him an offer to pay 10,000 total. If any way you can help it would be greatly benefited. Here is the prep school coaches info. Vin Sparacio Rise Academy Head Coach Cell- 347-419-8357 sparacio_vin@yahoo.com THANK YOU! T. Glover Terrance Glover, March 17, 2010 3:31 PM

  • My children are in public school and if it's the last thing I do, I am going to get them out. Public schools are HORRIBLE!!!!!!! Teachers don't care, the parents of the children my kids sit in the classroom with don't care. They want the kids to succeed on all these tests but aren't preparing our kids to take the test. To Florence, you are perfect example of why to not choose public schools. The teacher student ratio is unrealistic. How can one teacher in her mid 80's handle 30 third graders. That is ridiculous. Please help, I need assistance to make sure my children get the education they deserve. Camille, March 26, 2010 10:02 AM

  • I really need to find a schoolarship for my daughter, Because alot of Atlanta and Dekalb county schools are closing. I really don't want to put her in a school where I might feel she's not getting the best out of school, or to many students where she can't get the help she may need. I want the best for my daughters, even tho my youngest is one, I want it for her too when it her turn. I can't afford to move to a better part of Atlanta to find better schools or pay tuition, so how can I find a scholarship for my child's education, to help a low income parent. Please help me Thanks Alot Amirah Amirah, March 31, 2010 9:04 AM

  • Don;t give up, when everyone says you are crazy My wife and I thought we were struggling all alone with private school funding. Our story sounds familiar to those of you who took the time to post. Regardless, we kept our faith in God first. The boys are entering their junior year at RGNS in September. Both made honor roll. One is a campus tour guide. The other is the student council treasurer. Both will be dorm prefects in the fall. Both will stay on their sports teams. Somehow we seem to keep making it. Our family has stayed in tact. We will get our stuff back...After the boys graduate in 2012. Then we will pull our furniture out of storage. LOL. Put your faith and trust in God first. Do not give up the dream when everyone around you is calling you crazy. Stay focused on the real goal at hand..provide a better life for your future, your kids, your reason for doing what you do. The best chance possible is through education. That is the only gift that can never be taken from them! You are going to sacrifice. You are going to feel like you are suffering. In reality you are readjusting your life to prioritize what is most important. Do it for yourself and your family. Do not do it for what others may think or say. What they will never know is what you went through and by that point, wjho really cares. Paul C. Kelly, March 31, 2010 10:56 AM

She qualifies to go to Perdue College. The challenge we are having is the environment and as parents we can't afford private but we cant afford our daughter confirming to the environment. Need help?

  • My son is 10 years old. He's been in private school since he was 2. Recently there has been a change in my financial status and I am unable to keep him in. I would appreciate help with keeping him in the current school that he's attending now. He is a very smart student he's A-B honor. I would like to keep him where he is because it's a great school and I don't want him to fall behind academically. I have worked very hard to get him where he is and I want him to receive a better education than I did. He loves sports and he loves playing his clarinet and he wants to continue because he loves being a part of the band. we live in Florida and if there is anyway someone could help, you would be making a great investment in his future.

  • i know how you feel arkansas sucks the schools are horrible to im trying to go to boarding school in california andrea lige, May 9, 2010 11:21 AM

  • florence you are an idiot public schools are not the way to in my opinion you obviously havnt visted your childs school if you have how many students are in your kids class what the highest level of education the teachers have parent want to make sure there kids have the best maybe its just you but my MOM ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT MY EDUCATION AND NEEDS andrea lige, May 9, 2010 11:25 AM

  • Hi, I need suggestions on where I can apply for financial aid so that my 10 year old can attend a private boarding school that he and I believe would help him live up to his potential. As a single mom, he has way too much free time in the afternoons. I can't put him in afterschool programs because they close before I get off work. I can't allow him that much free time because boys will be boys and unsupervised and bored is a bad combination. He tests very highly, but has poor grades. He's a minority student. The problem I am running into is that, while there are several programs available, most require that he live within a metro area. Living in a rural area does not negate the negative influences available. I understand why these programs are focused on inner city kids, but it's frustrating that there are no programs, that I can find, available. He's a good kid (mostly) with a ton of potential. I believe that being a latch-key kid will disable him from living up to that potential. I believe that being in a structured educational environment 24-7 can provide him the tools he needs. I'm stuck between affording to feed him or affording to feed his future. Doesn't seem like a fair choice. I hope someone reads this and can advise me of other scholarship options not found at NAIS.

  • Florence, IT"S CALLLED PUBLIC SCHOOLS????????? You obviously went to public school as is evident in your grammar All of you think your kids are so amazing when there probably not. " and "This is why are country has so much debt" THERE not. Dont you mean THEY'RE not and, ARE country? dont you mean OUR country. I think this is reason enough that we do not want OUR kids going to public school. It has nothing to do with them being amazing it has everything to do with giving them a better chance for the good educatiion that you missed out on. " Laura, May 24, 2010 11:15 AM

  • I have two children currently enrolled in a Baltimore City School. They are academically up to/above par and I would like to place them in a school with other children that want to learn. They started in an Anne Arundel County School, however due to my separation; we had to move to Baltimore City. Since then, their zeal and enthusiasm for learning has shifted. I want to be able to enroll them in a school with students that want to learn. They are great kids, and I refuse to allow them to become a product of their environment. In today's society, a lot of standards and morals are being compromised. Nevertheless, I will continue to raise my children with the morals and Christian values that this country was built on. I monitor their television shows, the video games that they play, the music that they listen to and the friends that they choose. In the powerful words of Whitney Houston, "I believe the children are our future; teach them well and let them lead the way." I cannot afford tuition for them; however I am praying that the Lord will open a door for them to be able to attend a school in the area called “Unseld” School. The location is convenient and I believe it would be a great choice for them. I just need financial assistance. LD Cook, May 27, 2010 6:56 AM

  • I have four children that attend a very good private school. I was laid off from my job last year. I am looking for some financial assistance so that my children can continue to attend private school in North Carolina. Thank you. Tara, May 27, 2010 9:05 PM

  • I'm a grandmother of an exceptional granddaughter. I stumbled upon this site while looking for funds to pay for her tuition. The emails I just read are quiet similar to our situation. My granddaughter will be a senior in the fall. She has attended a private school since eighth grade and has qualified for some assistance with tuition. After Katrina she relocated to Texas for one school year and was so miserable she came back and has been living with me since. The tuition for her senior year is 17,000.00 she receives assistance of 4,000.00. I am unemployed at the moment after recently continuing my education. Her benefactor was a relative who is recently having significant financial difficulties and just informed us he can no longer pay her tuition. The child is an excellent student and has a wonderful outlook, in spite of the many challenges she has experienced through out her childhood. She is devastated she may not complete her senior year. If anyone has information on funds available for private school in the New Orleans area please email me at Gma52@hotmail.com SKC, May 28, 2010 5:50 PM

  • I am really discouraged by 80% of the comments I've read. How we educate our children is indeed a personal choice. I don't think anyone should be lambasted for trying to do what they think is best for their child(ren), even if, in our opinions it may not be. First of all, I AM a teacher in a public school and certainly it goes without saying that there ARE many teachers who don't care, there ARE teachers who don't know anything-but you find those same things in private schools, don't you. I don't think there's any perfect learning situation. I am a special education teacher in an elementary school that works with students in the general education setting, so I not only work with kids who are struggling, but I work with gifted kids too. I get to see every end of the spectrum and teachers, great and terrible. One thing that I can confirm is that public school is, unfortunately, NOT set up in a way that is beneficial to students who learn differently(newsflash:we all learn differently) or who have more pronounced attention issues. I am on this site because I have a son, who is 15 years old that was diagnosed 2 days ago with ADHD/inattentive type and ODD. Obviously I identified this a while back, being as how I deal with these types of kids daily, but I started to realize that if I didn't do something and quick my son(identified as gifted by the way, if that even makes a difference in this scenario) was NOT going to succeed! I am now at the point where I am looking at EVERY avenue available. I am actually thinking about getting him "tested" so he can receive special ed services since here in GA they can get a voucher to private school, but I don't know if I'm willing to go that route yet. That being said, if anyone has 1) gone that route before 2) has some additional information regarding scholarships that was not included on this site and 3) wants to just keep it positive and assist another person then please email me at trina_72@comcast.net. Good luck to all! Trina, May 30, 2010 12:43 AM

  • Hi, my name is Maegan and I am 15 years old. I'm from McAllen, Texas and have been a student at The White Mountain School for the past two years. My parents financed this through loans but have recently gotten divorced. My father refuses to help us out so my mother is raising myself and my six year old sister on her own. My mother has to pay for her college education, my sister's education, and mine as well as our house, electricity, car, etc. Frankly, we don't have money for groceries let alone a 44k boarding school education. I have been a straight A student all my life because I know the only way to a better life for my family and myself is through education. There are no quality high schools in McAllen, Tx; they are all overpopulated and do not even meet Texas Education standards. My mother can't afford to pay the monthly installments that come with loans and has terrible credit in the first place. I have no family to ask for help because they are all much worse off than we are as many have just moved from Mexico. I've seen that many people post their stories on this website in the hopes that someone will come along and help them out or give them money. I suppose I hope someone will help me out as well. I've received $33,600 in financial aid from The White Mountain school but need 11.5k more and I have absolutely no idea where to get it. The email address I have given is my school email. I check it daily so if anyone would like to contact me about solutions that would be wonderful. Thank you. Maegan Martinez, June 15, 2010 11:13 PM

  • All seeking help. Will try to add a little in the hopes that it might change the way you are going about it. My niece blessed to have receive full scholarships for most of her primary school. She now goes to college on a full with room and board. She worked hard, put her obligations to the school at the top. Attended all games, practices and helped out with charities. She gave back. I have read so many of the comments on this board, understand the need for help. Most don't mention what you or your child would give back. I truly do wish you all would find the help , but I have found in life that the more I give the less I need to worry about God looking out for me. I am not special, with the exception that I have faith. Why not tell people what your children would give in return for this help you all want. Try talking about what you can put into the solution. My niece will go far in life, not because she learned to take, but because she learned to give. Her father and mother are far from being rich. Both working stiffs. My brother works his butt off, first his week job and then his weekend job(s). If he needs to clean yards for people, he will, if he needs to drive someone, he will. There is no job that was beneath him. At times he, his wife & my niece would go & clean someones summer place before the season. His wife cleans houses & offices for a living, both during the week and weekends. All of you can do it, has to come from you taking the lead. Remember sitting at home worrying does not get the job, nor the wisdom. Talk to people, volunteer. You would be amazed at the people you meet when you volunteer. There is always someone in a much smaller boat on a much bigger sea, without a paddle. Count your blessings, you might find that you are walking toward the "What can I do for you" instead of the darkness of "ME ME ME". I pray that you all find the help, I pray more that you all find the love of God and His grace. God bless. Walter Walter Arneson, June 24, 2010 5:24 AM

It is my dream to have a best friend that I can play basketball with or just do anything and still be close to them. Public education has done me okay honestly Im not that dumb. Im currently one of the top in class with a gpa between 3.5-4.0 involved in leadership programs, but really would like not to have to move AGAIN in my high school years. We are middle class, but cant afford boarding school... Will Cohen, July 30, 2010 9:22 PM

  • Will, It sounds like you'd be a great candidate for a boarding school. Many students attend boarding school for the consistent environment that seek. If your talking about admission in fall of 2011, you're in great shape. In terms of admission, plan, plan, plan. Start early. Identify schools in which you'll be strong candidate. Get your parents' help in the application process filling out the financial statements. Be up-front with schools and understand that each makes its own aid decisions/awards. By all means, use the articles, guides, advice and calendars that we've published. With a methodical process, I'm sure you'll find some doors open. Best, B. Fisher, August 2, 2010 7:06 AM

  • My son's dream is to go to a private high school that will enable him to pursue his love and God given ability to master foreign languages. He currently takes Manadrin Chinese and has carried an average of 100% for the past 3 years. He has begun studying Japanese on his own through Rossetta Stone programs which he gets from our public library. In high scool he hopes to continue with Chinese and also study Spanish. He is also taking a sign language class offered by our church. He is going into the 9th grade and has recently completed Buffalo Prep which is an extremely difficult program for the top students in our city. This program is designed to prepare already gifted pre-highschool children for college level work. the high school he wishes to attend has alredy excepted him but unfortunately have run out of money for scholarships. If anyone is reading this and can help me find funding for Nichols Academy High School in Buffalo NY please let me know. I am trusting and believing in God that someone will be able to help my son fullfill his dreams for his future. He is a rare child who is actually genuinely interested in his own education. thank you and may God bless the readers of my words. Andrea Thompson, August 11, 2010 12:43 PM

  • Hi, I have just recently become a single parent with 3 children. We have had to move into a different home, and financially we have experienced many challenges. My son has attended a private school since his freshman year and is now a senior. I in my own self cannot began to cover the cost for his senior year and graduation. He has made an effort to get a part-time job with the intent to help pay his own tuition. That makes my heart sad because I believe that a child should only be concerned about things that are in his age of responsibilities, not to pay bills especially for his own education. His father refuses to give any money to our family which means that there have been many days of unsurety about many things. My greatest desire along with my Son's is to finish his Senior out at the same school he started. He has already gotten his senior ring, and was apart of the junior promotion to senior ring ceremony. Please help me to not just break my son's heart by not completing and graduating from his school. Please help me find finances to help. Thank You so much Cynthia Bates, August 13, 2010 11:33 AM

  • Hello, I have recently become a single parent with 2 children. We have become financially challenged as well because of my income issues. My son has been in private school since he was 2 years old, he is now 12. He was sent to public school this year and i saw a tremendous diffence in his school work ethics.This has saddened me. My daughter has also been in private school since she was 2 years old, she is now 5. She is reading, know her numbers, writes her name correctly, can add small numbers, colors, shapes etc. She will be entering Kindergarten. Their father give less than 130.00 a month to our family which on many days its unsure of how we will manage. My dearest and greatest desire is to have both of my children to continue their private school education and move on to a high learning institiution. Please help me find financial help for their educational journey. Thank you very much for your help. Donna Bush, August 14, 2010 7:17 AM

  • I am a divorced mom of two middle school girls and I am trying to find resources for scholarship/grants so that they can return to the private school that they've attended for the past three years. One of them has a learning disability and has done extremely well because of the one-on-one that she gets with a specialist. She still has a while before she reaches the goals that have been set on her IEP. I have searched the Founder Center's website at the library and the foundations listed do not give to individuals.

  • Hello my name is Tashima and I have a daughter that will be starting her senior year this September. I am a single parent living in the city of Newark, NJ. She had the chance to attend St. Anthony's High School in Jersey City, NJ. Unfortunately I had trouble paying the full price for her tuition last school year so she was unable to take her finals at the end of the school year. The school will not let her take her finals until I pay the past due amount. She also wishes to stay in the school for her final year but I am not financially able to send her. She has done very well in this school and I would love for her to stay there also. She plays basketball and is a very good athlete. She's been playing the sport nearly all of her life and wants to graduate with her class and go on to college to get her business degree as well play basketball on the college level. She has the talent to do all of this but I just don't have the means to provide her with what she needs to complete her education at St. Anthony's. I've tried reaching out to different support systems but to no avail. Her coach is even trying to do what he can and reaching out to anyone he could for help for my daughter. I don't want my daughter to fall through the cracks and have her talents lost because of this. She has the talent and brains with the ambition to work hard for what she wants. She also wants to be that positive influence for younger girls from the hard streets of Newark, NJ by informing them and showing them that with a good head on your shoulders and the drive to want better for yourself that they too can achieve what they dream of. If someone can help me to pay the past due tuition along with this years' I will be forever thankful. Tashima Parker, August 31, 2010 2:29 PM

  • Howdy, I wish to place my boys 8 & 11 in a private Christian school. The tuition will be very expensive. Both of my boys are academically sound and hard workers.

  • TO Florence, Some children can not deal with public school. Thats why the drop out rate was high. Some children wants to learn but because of the crazy over crowdness of public school they can not deal with the issue. I am one of those children that went to a private school and found out it was the best thing my mother ever did for me. When she could not afford it, she applied for scholarships and grants to keep me there. Grow up and learn that just because you can not afford something does not mean there is not away to find away in. Tamika, September 8, 2010 8:40 PM

  • My 14 year old daughter entered her first year of private school this year. I received some financial aid from the school and my taxes help with a good portion of the bill. The remaining balance I'm paying in monthly payments. I am trying to get ready for next year. Does anyone know of any websites that can help with financial aid or grants. Most of the sites I found only provide assistance for schools that they are associated with. I want my daughter to stay at the school she is currently in. I need to find grants, scholarships, etc that you can apply to schools of your choice. Leslie, September 19, 2010 8:00 PM

  • My situation is very similar to some of the other comments that I have read. My son is currently enrolled as a Freshman at a prep school in Va, and I am in need of help with my sons tuition balance of $3,800. I am a single mother who lost my job in May 2010 and I just got a job makiing 60% less than what I was making. My son is a Honor student with a A average in all classes and he is doing extremly well academicly, athletically, and socially. He was chosen to go to Nicgaragua for the Summer abroad program where he will do community service work, but I received a letter today that states I have to pay the balance of his tutition before he can proceed with the paperwork process and apply for any financial aid to go on this trip. Would you please advise me if their is any scholarship, grant or financial aid that would help pay the balance we owe of $3,800. Thank You for all your support.

  • Justonesinglemother...being a stay-at-home mom is a JOB! With the cost of daycare, a mother or father cannot afford TO work! Your response was cruel and DUMB! Me in NH, November 16, 2010 8:53 PM

  • I love the way some of you so loosely say... Good education comes from public school. ha! I suppose that depends on your idea of a good education. If I want my child to learn how to do drugs, have multiple forms of sex and be confused as to whether or not she is a boy or a girl (look in your underware for crying out loud), if I also want her to become an ACLU spokesperson or literally have her childhood and innocence ripped from her tiny little hands... then yes public school is the best option. Anything other than that and it HAS to be private school or home school. Tammy, November 18, 2010 6:56 AM

  • Michelle, how about getting a second job? With the holidays coming up, many retailers are looking for holiday help. If you could call the school and tell them you will need an extension till after the holidays, I can’t imagine they say no. But your problems are not gone!?!. You will have to deal with tuition next year, are you going to just keep trying to find ways out of debt every year, what about college what are you going to do when he has to go to college? How about he attends public school for now and you save your money for his college tuition. I bet he is ahead of his class in public school so I can’t imagine he would not do well. Besides many doctors, lawyers, CEO and business professionals came from the public schools... maybe you can sign him up for a college math class to keep him ahead of the rest?!?... That won’t cost you $3,800! Anyway my point to all of you is, instead of asking for a solution, invent one! We are all on our last leg and believe you me, if the private schools could ask for their own scholarship they would… You think they are not hurting during these tough times? Everyone wants a break, everyone wants a raise and donations are not coming in like they use too… I’m a single mother of 2 wonderful, very smart, deserving kids. But I had to pull them out of private school because of economic pressure, but I promise you this, they will make the best of their public school and their education leaving no book unturned and wasting no time doing it! Don’t waste anymore time asking for help, go out there and make it happen, GOOD LUCK!!! Monte, November 18, 2010 11:33 AM

  • I'm home schooled right now, but I am trying to get into a private school to accelerate my learning and to have access to extra curricular activities. I'm already far ahead of other teenagers my age in school, and I will be starting community college classes next year. However, I would put those classes on hold if I could get a scholarship to a higher end school, so I could have a good name to put down when I apply for universities. If this comment section is reviewed for applicable students, then please consider me. I have been performing the fine arts since I was 5 years old (I'm 15 now), and I have many talents to offer.

  • I would like to see if my daughter has an chance to go to a private school since our public schools are not challenger her. She is a straight A plus student, has gotten 2 academic awards and has been invited to take the SAT test as a 7th grade. I am considering sending her to a private school to be more challenged but would need a scholarship b/c we are a family of 5 and 3 kids in elementary and middle school. I'm assuming we have to take these ISEE test - does each private school have their own test that want you to take (in CT) or is the ISEE accepted at all the schools you apply to: Choate, Hamden County Day School, Mery, Laurelton Hall. My two questions are the ISEE accepted at all these schools. And what scholarships can I apply for? Francine, November 30, 2010 5:22 PM

  • Francine, I read you comment below our "Private School Scholarships Programs." Schools tend not to pay close attention to our comment sections. The best, most direct, way to get answers to your questions is to contact each school's admission office. They can tell you about test requirements and their financial processes. Generally, each school does not have its own test. Most use the SSAT, www.ssat.org. In terms of financial aid, most use SSS to gather family data and estimate family contribution, www.sss.nais.org/parents/. I would begin, by making an initial inquiry into your schools of choice and familiarizing yourself with SSAT and SSS. Keep in mind that each school administers its admission and financial aid processes independently so each will be a bit different. Best wishes in the school search, B. Fisher, December 1, 2010 8:46 AM

  • Does anyone know of grants/scholarship programs specific for K-8 children. Specifically children/dependents of Disabled Veterans that are attending private schools? I am a disabled Veteran, rated 100% by the VA. I cannot physically work in my prior medical profession, because of my spine injuries. It is very frustrating. I waited until I finished graduate school and had a great recession proof professional career prior to having children. I already have my education, so none of my benefits help for the current K-8 school. Most Veteran's child grant programs are only for college. I am grateful. But, K-8 education is far more critical than the college for our situation. It seems silly to provide plenty of funding for college, yet nothing exists for Disabled Veteran children to help fund a much better private education, allowing access to better choices for colleges. And then financial aid. Based upon my experience, my early private schooling allowed me to excel in a public high school. I easily won scholarships to finance college. Had I attended local CA public schools in my early years, I would have not enjoyed school; not applied myself, and quit. In Texas, we pay outrageous property taxes to fund our public schools. We pay 3% of our assessed home value, just for public school funding. Our school gave a small reduction in tuition. However, their Financial Aid form never took into account the I have to pay $2000/mo for care for my 18 month old, as I cannot physically care for her. I pay more than my mortgage just for child care and private tuition. My son has done very well in private school. I'd rather die than have to cut costs and send him public. I would rather cut off my leg and sell it to keep him there in private. It seems a horrible thing to waste a child's mind and well being. Any referrals would be greatly appreciated.

  • Is there any source of financial assistance for an International student with an F1 status, who has completed 3 semesters at our community college but whose uncle can no longer pay his bills? He isn't allowed to work and isn't eligible for financial aid. He's an excellent student and wants nothing more than to complete his college education. mary thompson, January 12, 2011 2:47 PM

  • Has anyone actually gotten any financial help by posting here, or is posting for help just a waste of time? RGW, February 15, 2011 1:23 AM

  • RGW, The quick answer is yes. But it's complicated yes. Has money fallen from the sky or has anyone received a direct handout as a result of posting? Not that we know of. As we write and teach, financial aid is process. No pile of ready money exists. The FA process is time consuming, difficult, and complex. Because it's a process (and not an equation), it doesn't yield a particular outcome. You must plan ahead, start early (the traditional financial aid deadline for the coming fall is in early January- a full 8-9 months before school opens), execute, and follow-up in order to secure aid. We write and teach planning and process. Families who plan and work through the process have done well. Asking for a handout doesn't yield anything. Families who execute the process can do well. I’ll post our general financial aid advice separately just under this post. B. Fisher, February 15, 2011 8:32 AM

  • Your first order of business to should be to focus on and identify schools that best fit where your son stands in his educational processes- find the school that best 'fits' him. Then make financial aid part of the application process. All the financial aid in the world can be to no benefit if the school fit isn't good. That said, we suggest these beginnings when you approach FA: There's no clear pool of ready money. FA is process- often with a good number of dead ends before finding what you need. Your financial aid application should be made concurrently with your admission application. Keep in mind that your more likely to receive aid in making application where your son/daughter is among the top students or has a special talent that the school seeks. Learn and meet all deadlines. TALK WITH YOUR SCHOOL If financial aid is part of your boarding school application process, talk with the admission/financial aid office at the school(s) to which you're applying. Ask about available aid and financing options. No one will know more about aid options and availabilityfor their students than your school. SSS Visit School and Student Services (SSS), sss.ets.org. Read and learn about the Personal Financial Statement (PFS). The PFS is primary form in the financial aid process. NAIS Visit the National Association of Independent Schools. NAIS maintains a database of scholarship programs as well as other resources financing private education. http://www.nais.org/admission/scholarshipproviders.cfm?ItemNumber=146166&sn.ItemNumber=142477&tn.ItemNumber=142479 Lenders Begin by looking at Sallie Mae www.salliemae.com and Your Tuition Solution, www.yourtuitionsolution.com. Each makes different types of private school loans. If your situation involves a Catholic school, talk with diocese education office to find out what they know and offer regarding financial aid. These are only our starting suggestions. Ask questions and explore the advice of the experts and resources above. B. Fisher, February 15, 2011 8:37 AM

  • Hello, I am a widow and mother of two children, 13 and 17. My young son currently is attending Catholic middle school (8th Grade) with half scholarship. Unfortunately the school has told me that the scholarship is only for Elementary and middle schools. He is a great child and first honor student.

My job was discontinued over a 6 months. I would like to keep him in private school, but I cannot afford to with my current status. I am desperately seeking assistance! Thank you in advance for any high school scholarship information that you can provide. Is any angel out there to help him, please Thank you. M.C. Pinto, February 16, 2011 6:30 AM

  • I'm curious. We applied for a private high school and during the application process also applied for financial aide. We were lucky enough to receive about 30%, but still find ourselves a little short and are looking for some possible small grants to fill in the gap. If we have gone the process through the schools are there other options? Because we just got our reply from the school last week I'm wondering if we are too late? W.Jones, February 27, 2011 10:05 PM

  • I am and aunt to two incredible smart but consistently challenged youngsters with autism. My family has already filed bankruptcy once and has had to move twice due to financial constraints in providing for their kids. The years spent in the public school system in Gilbert, Arizona were not only unhelpful, but were detrimental to my niece’s development (horror story material of being locked into rooms, having the her ISP 'doctored' to suit the school district's agenda, being told to sue them if we want them to adhere to her IEP and provide licensed therapists). My family found a private school that works year round with licensed BCBA and special education teachers on staff, and that provides consistent communication with parents and students. They are a blessing for each and every child that attends and their families. Unfortunately they are very expensive, as providing quality education is, and my family is once again facing bankruptcy. I've begun to volunteer at the private school and they are in dire need of funding also. Any and all recommended grant or scholarship programs will be researched. Anybody with any advice, please contact me. Erinn.christine@gmail.com. Please put “Autism education funding” in the subject line so I know you are a real person contacting me.

  • My 14 yr old nephew is very gifted academically (his paternal grandfather was an MIT - PHD grad). Ever since his parents' divorce over a year ago, I have watched him go from an honor roll student to getting D's. He needs a private boarding school which will give him structure and guidance in all aspects of his life. His father travels on business and his mother has MS. If you know of any way that this child could attain a scholarship or grant, please feel free to contact me. I am a concerned aunt and Godmother to this young man. Jenn Kutcho, May 12, 2011 12:51 PM

  • My stepson is a senior in high school and has played varsity football since sophmore year. As a senior, he was captain of the football team. He was accepted into Bridgton Academy and we are unable to afford to send him there. He is a great kid and we feel the guidance, and study habits along with all the things Bridgton would afford him is something he really needs at this point. He stumbled because he became a bit overconfident when the many different colleges were calling the house for him. He learned late that it was more than just his athletic ability that would pave the way. He wants to go to college but we would rather see him enter better prepared before entering a University. Please help us to make this a reality. Where can we find some grants for him? Jean, May 16, 2011 4:36 PM

  • How about homeschooling? I homeschool my children for about $200 a month and both are months ahead of their friends. My son's best friend attends a $20,000 a year private school yet my son is over 2 grade levels ahead of him in reading. My point is you don't have to spend a lot of money to give your children a good education. BTW-our local public school is rated 2 out 10 so that's why they aren't attending.

  • We are a Christian family of 8. Two are attending college this year on scholarships, financial aid and loans. One is in public H.S. My youngest three have been attending a very small rural Christian K-12 school here in Pennsylvania. My husband is a self-employed wood flooring mechanic and I was about to take a job as a substitute para in a public school. All the schools recently were cut and the Christian School that used to give our children half financial aid had a drop in donors. The total tuition is $8,700 dollars for all three children. We need about half of that as we think we could pay the other half if I work. (Very few jobs are available). I would like to send all, but we can only afford to send the high schooler. Cyber schooling or homeschooling is an option for the other two but then my ability to work is limited. Am I too late to obtain any financial aid from another source? They are all good students.. cathleen, July 5, 2011 6:16 AM

  • Hi..I live in Massachusetts and we have been sending our two girls to private school for all of thier lives. About 2 years ago my husband lost his job, but with me working and our availible credit we were able to continue paying our mortgage and bills even if we got behind. However even though my husband now has a job, we went so far into debt to keep us afloat at that time in our lives, that it is finally catching up with us. We feel like if we could just get some kind of grants or aid to help us send our girls to thier school for one year without payments, we could catch up and handle it again on our own. Our goal is to raise God honnoring children who are bright and have a close relationship with Christ. We hope the christian schooling will prepare them for a life of serving Him. It seems there is request after request on this page and I'm not sure if ANY of them have gotten any answers but I felt I should try. If there is any advice anyone could give me about those who may want to help give two children a christian education outside of the politically charged, anti-faith, indoctrination of public schools..I would be so very greatful Thank you Heather, July 11, 2011 8:55 PM

  • Are there any scholarships for private schools in hampton roads roads. My son will be entering the second grade next year and I would like to keep him in the private he has been attending for the since kindergarten. Our area seems to be lacking in scholarships opportunities. A.Brown, November 25, 2011 8:52 PM

  • To someone's prior question about The Lawrenceville School (www.lawrenceville.org), they (like most well established private schools) have a very healthy amount of financial aid. There are students who pay no cost to attend and receive grants from the school that cover full tuition (and room and board) as well as books and fees (and in some cases perhaps travel costs). You should never rule out a private school because of the advertised cost of the school. Most schools will boast about the amount of financial assistance they provide on their websites. Lawrenceville and its peers are extremely competitive and dont want to lose out on great candidates based on financial circumstances. Good luck. Jim, November 26, 2011 12:59 PM

  • Hi, my name is Kaylyn. I am looking into going to a private school, because many of the teachers in the public school I go to just don't care. I get all A's, and I have no way to take advanced classes. Also, the teachers are not open to kids asking questions they think you should just be held back if you ask about one question. I would like to get a chance to go somewhere that will actually challenge, yet teach me at the same time. The only problem with this is that my family is no financially able to send me to a school. I would appreciate if anyone could at least point me in the direction of a suitable scholarship. I thank everyone in advance. Kaylyn, November 26, 2011 4:55 PM

  • I am a mother of 2 in the DC area which is very competitive. From my understanding most independent schools listed with NAIS have monies for those in need that have been accepted, which do not need to be paid back. For example a school that normally costs $20,000, you may have to pay $8,000 for the year. This is all depending on your family's income ..... Some may not have to pay almost anything, but should at least volunteer your time! Good luck Jabs, December 7, 2011 3:41 PM

  • I haven't read all the comments because there are so many, I agree that private school is a good idea, but not for some of the reasons that others have stated. I too have a very bright child who graduated middle school with a 4.0, he now takes A.P. and honors classes in high school. I decided to look for tuition assistance for a private school because he has started to show signs of bowing to peer pressure. I have found things on his computer and e-reader that adults shouldn't look at let alone a 14 year old child. He has become verbally abusive and says that "it's okay because he's a guy and all the kids are looking at adult things and doing adult things" . I am worried about him a great deal. I want to remove him from the public school environment and put him in a place where I know that the faculty is keeping an eye out for our children. I don't want to see him start to have real problems because the pressure to be a secular teenager is too strong. I am asking for help. I don't want to keep up with the Jones-es, I just want my son to keep on the path that I set him on. I want him to keep the good values that he was taught and finally I want him to have a good sense of discipline. Thank you so much! Jennifer Jenny, January 23, 2012 2:42 PM

  • Hi, I am not sure who i am writing this to. I heard maybe there is a chance that you could help me stay in the private school that i am in right now. I love the school I am in. I first went to a public school where there was so much fighting & being Bullied when that didn't work I was also home schooled. where I learned so much. I was in Speech for many years at school & out of school. I never felt like I truly belong at any school When I started 8th grade at my private school i tried real hard in all my subjects because I knew mama was paying a lot of tuition money she couldn't really afford, but she always thought that my education is MOST IMPORTANT! I have been working hard and getting A's It has been a struggle but mama doesn't have the money to keep me in my school next year. I love my school, teachers, and the other students that are here. I belong here and I would like to graduate high school from here. If you can help me in any way it would be a blessing for us. thank you so very much. christian christian maynard, January 31, 2012 1:48 PM

  • A good private school will help you as a parent find tuition assistance for your child. They do have standards but they want students. Some schools offer this assistance and/or will direct you to organizations that offer grant money. There are several that offer up to four years of assistance for Christian school attendance in grades K-12. You will have to qualify but you may be able to get a combination of grant money and tuition aid based on your individual situation. Parents are ultimately responsible for the education of their children so if your local government school is not doing an adequate job or does not teach in accordance with your values you need to find an alternative that does. Pray for guidance and keep looking. Don't give up! April, February 6, 2012 4:27 PM

  • My son currently attends Catholic Academy of West Buffalo, I am a registered nurse, however each year it has become a challenge for me to keep up with the tuition related to personal dept. My son's artistic talents has became extremely recognized at his school. He creates a comic strip for the kindergarten class for his school. he also won the national handwriting contest for his 5th grade class. His artistic abilities has flourished throughout the school and has been praised by every teacher as well as the students. Catholic academy of west Buffalo has created a well rounded student and I am so grateful for that. I want him to continue in a positive atmosphere, so I am reaching out for some form of financial assistance so that he can continue to grow in such a well rounded school that has the ability to guide my son in the right direction to build a strong and solid foundation for his future as well as when the time comes to further his education.

  • READ ME !!! Greetings. I am a hard working, 4.0 crimson scholar at NMSU and single mother of two incredible boys. By faith and grace I have managed to keep them in a private Christian school the past six years. When our oldest son started kindergarten We were married and able to better afford to pay the tuition. After their father spent two tours serving our country in the sand box, he came home mentally changed. We divorced. Now both of my sons were in a private Christian school until this past Friday when I was forced to withdraw them due to the lack of money required to fulfill the tuition requirements. They were not even able to complete the year. I have been blessed by the fact that one of the teachers who taught my eldest son has opened a new Christian school. She has seen to it that my fifth grader could finish this school year at her school while I home school my first grader as she will not offer first grade until next year. It is my intention to send both of my boys to this new Christian Academy next year. I am attempting to raise the funds to cover tuition for this purpose. Our situation is not a permanent one as I am in school myself to teach and by teaching in the school tuition for my boys will be reduced or even fully paid. I only have a year left until I complete my Bachelor degree. I plan to continue my education further while I work in my profession but until such time I am looking for whatever financial assistance I can find for my boys tuition. My boys are both extremely intelligent, loving, and kind. They deserve the very best in life and that begins with a great education. And yes, I have faith that somehow it will all work out. I also believe that faith without works is dead (James 2:17). So, I am doing the work by searching for scholarships and applying for grants with faith that some will be awarded and that miracles happen everyday. If you have read this and wish to help, please e-mail me at jenkitcey@ yahoo.com. Thank you for your time and consideration. Jennifer Kitcey, February 28, 2012 12:19 AM

  • Simply put I am the aunt of a 14y/o who has been in 3 different schools both public and charter in my area. All these schools have been of no help with the education of my niece. My son however attended both public and private schools. He returned to public school after 3yrs in private. Straight A student throughout his academic lifetime. Graduated college with honors while diagnosed with colorectal cancer which took his life in 2010. I come to realize public or private it doesn't matter if your child wants an education they will get one but, this must be instilled in them from birth yes, birth. The importance of learning from birth and the irrelevance of others from birth. I would like my niece to attend private school only because she lacks focus and discipline that should have been instilled in her. As for public school system if your not the so called gifted yes you will be left behind. There are so many horror stories in many states and communities but parents must get their voices heard. Private schools are great but if you can't afford them and you pay rent or own your home then you pay a school tax find a way to bring that to your neighborhood counsel's attention, If the service is gone then paying tax money should be gone. t That money can pay for your child's education. I believe they should do away with the school tax and have everyone pay for school. Children will learn more if their parents must pay. Yes even low income and assisted families should have to pay something, then maybe free will regain appreciation. Ladysunrize, March 1, 2012 3:42 AM

He is bored at the public high school and I cannot ensure he participates in a sport after school and study. The military academy can do both. He was just there for 5 weeks this summer and I did not get one complaint from him. I have filled out the financial aid forms, but I really want to try and do my part to secure the resources.

  • OK....I feel funny doing this but anything for my child. He will be a Junior in High School and wants to attend a private school this fall. the tuition is way more than we can afford. He is a great kid and deserves an opportunity that his mother and I can't give him on our own. He is ranked 9 out of 180 in his class. He is the captain of his swim team and rows for crew. He has given time to help fundraise for the American Diabetes Association and has helped raise over $30,000 in the past two years. He spent two weeks as a CIT at a camp for diabetics to help teach younger children how to handle their diabetes and is a Type 1 diabetic himself. This is one deserving child. Can someone help? Thanks for looking. Howard, August 20, 2012 10:44 AM

  • My daughter has learning disabilities that have caused her to be on a IEP since the second grade. She is a good kid and wants to be a nurse when she grows up. There are so many things I wish I would have know about public schools, but here we are. They are passing her, but she won't be at grade level when she graduates at this rate. There is a good private school, but they have a high yearly rate. They are just for special ed kids and have a high rate for kids to go to college from their school. There is nothing for kids who have special needs for financial help. We are paying a lot of money out now for her testing and medical bills. Upon entering high school she has developed anxiety related problems. I will take ideas. Leetha, February 21, 2014 1:37 AM

  • To be brief, I have a grandson that need to be and stay in a Christian environment. He was in public school where he was being bulled every day. I transfere him into a Christian school where things are better and he is doing better, even in his classwork.His grades are improving. I pray that God will keep him in there, but I have lost my job, and my husband is on a fixed income, and want so badly to keep him in Christian School. Is there anyone out there that can help me with a Scholarship to pay his tuition. I am behind a little and I don't want him to be put out of school. Thank you in advance if you can help me, may God Bless you. Bernice Maxwell, March 3, 2014 6:34 AM

  • I am the widowed mother of 4 children. I struggle financially top simply raise them. My oldest son struggles with anger and behavior issues. I have found a couple of schools that will not only help him with his issues but they will teach him to be a proud leader with the intelligence and integrity to make something out of his life and better himself. The problem is I really can't afford it. My kids mean the world to me and it breaks my heart to watch my son struggle in life the way he does. If anyone knows where I might find some help to pay for a school that could help him succeed in life pleease let me know Mindy, March 4, 2014 6:22 PM

  • I have an 8th grader that applied to a boarding school and - surprise - was accepted. I asked the father to supply info for the financial aid but he refused. I filed a complaint in court for back child support and for his financial documents but we missed the financial aid deadline (I still don't have a court order, the process is really long) Meanwhile, my daughter is very excited about this very exclusive boarding school. Where should I start? I am very worried about this. Thank you. Kenya Dixon, March 9, 2014 5:27 PM
