Parents today have myriad options for educating their children. Choosing the right school involves considering a number of factors relative to each student’s academic temperament. Considerations for parents include the quality of education, class size, social environment and cost. Independent schools come with unique costs, such as tuition, books, supplies and uniforms, and they offer unique benefits that easily outweigh their cost. Schools like Shorecrest Preparatory School in St. Petersburg, Florida, offer an experience that cannot be matched.
Nearly all college applicants apply for financial assistance. It’s an accepted part of the college application process. As parents explore private school options for children in grades K-12, I would encourage them to look at the financial aid process the same way.
