How do you help students for whom college seems too expensive?

Education! It is important to educate students and parents that they can't afford not to go to college.

Education! It is important to educate students and parents that they can’t afford not to go to college. I begin early, even reaching out to our elementary and middle schools, about the importance of a college education. When they begin high school, we have several opportunities to show them how financial aid and scholarships work. When our local need-based scholarships become available, we have a luncheon for all students who qualify and work with them through the entire process.
