We are going for the SEHS options in two years but want to explore backup options–private high schools–just in case. We would need substantial aid, though, and I’m wondering if there are some private schools that might offer more aid than others? I’ve heard that the Chicago Academy for the Arts can be generous–and our daughter is very artistic. I’ve heard that Lycee is more affordable and offers aid. Any other schools that offer substantial aid–need or merit based aid?
Lab, Latin, Parker and British all offer financial aid. They are all need based, none are merit based. I don’t know how they determine the amounts awarded but I’m sure they would be happy to talk with you about it.
