CASE STUDY - "CAN WE REALLY DO THIS? I HAVE NO IDEA HOW WE ARE GOING TO SEND OUR KIDS TO COLLEGE."

The Monti Family

We met the Monti Family in late 2016. Maureen, their daughter, was a solid student but her initial view of in-state public universities was seemingly dictated by her family's limited finances. We went to work with this family right away and showed them how private endowments from a larger selection of private colleges could not only make college more affordable, but cost less than the in-state public options.

Maureen decided to attend Mississippi College in the Fall of 2017.
