August 6, 2019

Erica Hernandez, Regional Program Manager, Northwest, A Better Chance, CA & Jessica Gamboa Feliciano, Regional Program Manager, Southwest, A Better Chance, CA Every school has a budget to allocate financial aid to as many admissible students as they can accommodate, but what is a high-need family considering in their decision to sign a contract with a school? In this presentation, we dissect the thought process families use in deciding to sign a contract. How do factors like academic programs, school culture, family contributions, and transportation factor into the equation? Family preference is dependent on whether or not they find value in investing in a private school education, especially as they consider the transition from a public to tuition-based school.
