Recently, I've been looking into applying for boarding school for the 2013-2014 year, as a 10th grader. My family is fairly middle class, with an average income of about 90K.
I haven't been able to get much information about financial aid yet, but how much can I expect from a HADES school - assuming I'm accepted first, of course ;) ? Do the highly selective school offer more financial aid than average boarding schools?
Also, does anyone know of merit scholarships that are offered to incoming 10th grade girls? I have been able to find some prestigious scholarships (CDB, Icahn, etc.) from various schools and organizations, but their requirements are that the applicant be applying for 9th grade or below...which may be a bit late in my case.
My parents aren't too enthusiastic about spending too much on my high school education, especially since I plan on going to grad school and beyond, which should be a burden on their wallets as well as my own. Plus, I have two younger siblings at home with similar scenarios.
