    It is rather expensive, but it is definitely worth it! Also, there are many scholarships which the school offers to help students, and over half of the student body uses these to continue coming. I am among them. While the price tag may seem intimidating, it is entirely worth it! Always be on the lookout for scholarships, though.

    It is a little pricier than some but it is a private school. They understand that students need help paying for school so they offer many scholarships

    The school is expensive but the cost is well worth it if you like to learn from amazing professors, one of which is Orson Scott Card, who is invited to speak regularly.
