Recent studies show 53% of those who didn’t apply for financial aid would have qualified for assistance! Is that true of families in your high school? Is every family you are working with correctly completing financial aid forms? If not, why not? Statistics also tell us that 6 out of every 10 FAFSA forms gets submitted with some type of error or inconsistency. In many cases they are forfeiting money they could have otherwise received and utilized to give them a real advantage at making college more affordable. Here’s another question…Do parents think you are remiss in your duties NOT to offer them assistance with this as well as other critically important parts of their child’s educational process? We know Financial Aid is only one of the many components that make up the process, and time constraints and work load limit what and how you can offer assistance. If the answers to these questions trouble you, and you would like to explore an opportunity to offer a more complete educational experience to the families and students you serve, talk with us today. We'd be honored to schedule and present our FREE workshop to the families of your college bound students.
Our goal is to partner with as many public and private high schools as possible in and around Western Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut to help educate families on how to make college more easliy affordable. With many of our happy clients currently attending their schools, principals, guidance counselors, and PTSA board members have given us glowing reviews, and more and more local families are seeing the value of working with us, and the benefits we can provide.
As an educator, you can expect the following benefits from working with ECFS:
* A higher rate of college bound seniors – especially those receiving financial aid!
* An increase in the number of students attending the top universities, while their parents pay the least amount possible in total costs – often times even less than it would have cost
to attend a local in-state college or university!
* Widespread appreciation from the students, parents (and even grandparents) who were worried about how they were going to pay for college.
* A knowledgeable resource to compliment the work you already do to prepare students for college, including programs for the most advantageous career path, evaluating best-fit colleges with the most generous financial aid awards, and assistance with the college entrance process, including critiquing essays and resumes, prepping for interviews, etc.
* A fellow educator who is committed to supporting the community without creating a conflict of interest that often comes from bringing outside businesses into your organization.
* A financial partner who understands and supports your tremendous efforts to provide a first class education on a tight budget.
* The peace of mind knowing you are doing all you can to help the families entrusted to your care – even going beyond your area of expertise or ability to serve them in house.
* A stronger track record of success with your alumni achieving meaningful and profitable lives.
* And much more…
