Patrice Kelly, Parent, Arlington, Virginia
We took Brock Jolly’s class, Little-Known Secrets of Paying for College, while our kids were still in elementary and middle schools. He was knowledgeable and sensitive to the fact that the
class included long-range planners like us, as well as parents of high school juniors and seniors. This class provided us with a useful reality check on whether your family would qualify for need-based financial aid and what to do short-term and long-term to plan for need-based aid or the lack thereof (as is the case with many working couples). The instructors were sympathetic to all of us and provided more practical and creative solutions than we thought possible. Brock’s class took most of the intimidation out of the college financing picture and gave us common sense strategies to help our kids get the education they want at the schools they want without leaving us broke.
