Making Education Affordable
In today’s economy, many families assume that a private-college education is not an option. This is a misperception. When you look at data, you find that a private college is both affordable and accessible for a wide range of students. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the average tuition that students pay at private colleges has actually declined over the past decade, after adjusting for grant aid and inflation. Combine this cost efficiency with the personal attention that students receive at a private institution like Assumption College or any of the other private colleges in the Worcester area, and you may determine that the value of the education is worth the investment.
