Ten Things to Know about Financing an Independent School Education

May 9, 2023
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Paying for an independent school education is a significant investment for every family, requiring sacrifice to ensure that a child has the best opportunity to reach their potential.  While it’s hard to do, you should never rule out a school as an option solely based on its price tag.  Learn why and how schools support thousands of families each year to bring the price tag closer to their reach.  In this session, explore the top things to know and consider as you partner with schools to understand how they work to make their tuition as affordable as possible.  Know what to expect as you travel though the process, how to separate fact from fiction, and how to leverage the help and support that are available to you.

Presenter: Mark J. Mitchell, Vice President, Access & Affordability at National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), supports the work of K-12 schools and other organizations in the effective administration of financial aid programs.  Mark regularly presents on tuition pricing, affordability, demographic and income trends, and school financial aid management.
