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. 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.
