my kid got a full ride
My buddies kid only had to pay 5K a year (to cover room & board) to play at an ISL school and between he and his wife they make well over 300K per year. I'd love to get access to that needs based formula tool.
Depends on the school and the size of their endowment as well as number of full pay families among many other variables. That income range you’re talking about is right in the wheelhouse of what some schools are looking for. Good income but not necessarily enough where they’d want to spend 20% of their combined income on high school. There are some deep pockets in these schools.
Good Founders league schools will pay for talent....
Just know what your in for. Schools want:
Diversity, kids who they feel they can “save”, strong grades, and full pay.
Unless your kid is true stud which there are 4-5 per year, you are looking at a minimum of 18k per year.
The average size, above average student and athlete from a blue collar family is getting 40-50k, but your still on the hook for 15-25k.
Study the ssat, play an instrument or sing, do something that makes your profile different then the other 800 kids applying. Good luck!
