Paying for College

Higher education comes at a much higher cost today than in the past.  Since attending college just over a decade ago, the cost of tuition at my alma mater has doubled.  This does not include the price of room and board.  College is not meant to strike fear into the pocketbooks of parents, but the sad thing is that it does.  Some families are more financially capable of others when it comes to saving and planning, but I don't think anyone was really able to plan enough and budget for today's cost of a college degree.  Whether you have one or two kids in high school or a couple in elementary or middle school, paying for college should be somewhere in your brain.  If you haven't started, the Library is here to help.  The experts at ISM College Planning are making their way to Zionsville to answer your questions about paying for college.  On Monday, September 9th, ISM College Planning will be here at 6:30 p.m. to do a presentation on paying for college.  Students and parents with students in all grades and of all ages are welcome, registration is recommended.  Then, in a first ever session, students are invited back on Monday, October 21st (during Fall Break) for a pizza and scholarship search!  Spaces are limited to only ten students per session.  Registration is required for both the 1:00 p.m. session and the 2:30 p.m. session and is open to students in grades 6-12 only.
