Q: Why do you think it is important for your child to attend a tuition-based school in Philadelphia?
A: Every child deserves a good education and some people are unable to afford the high cost of tuition. If all children are offered the same opportunities of those families who can afford a tuition-based school it would allow them to understand the importance of excelling and knowing that education is a pivotal tool to succeed in life.

A: It helps defray the cost of Jabriel’s tuition and gives my child an opportunity to afford a good education in a structured environment.

A: It is a GREAT scholarship to have and allows your child to have the same opportunities as his/her peers who can afford a tuition-based school.
