Admit it. As a society, we are obsessed with the perfect fit. From a hand-tailored suit to the prefect running shoes, fit is a critical and non-negotiable factor. Crisp Consulting + Coaching believes families should consider the academic, social and financial fit of independent day schools, boarding schools and colleges.
Determining academic and social fit is easy for families to discuss. Yet, when conversations turn to finance, many families grow silent and have little context for determining the factors of financial fit. Financial fit considers the sticker price and the debt that can come with an education. Financial fit should not be a stressor. In fact, it should be the opposite and serve as a factor that enhances your educational endeavors.
Although the Free Application for Standard Aid, FAFSA, and other institutional forms are not due until January, we would like to offer the following basics of financial fit from Forrest M. Stuart, Director of Financial Aid at Furman University.
