: : All im saying is that it's not financially feasible to give say 6 full ride scholarships for girls basketball, 6 for boys, 25 for football, 9 for baseball 9 for softball, and on and on and on. Adding up all the sports and just giving them 3 per team, that's 78 scholarships which equates to 560k in money not being generated to the school. But what you're suggesting is that number is much higher.
: : For kids who are in financial need, they're awarded more money. But for the rich kids...tough to hear that they're not paying too. Not say8ing it's impossible...just doesn't make financial sense.
: : Now who knows if they have HUGE boosters or if they have a HUGE endowment...that changes everything.
: It all comes down to your daughter's game. Schools that are vested to their athletic program will be more willing to offer financial aids regardless of your financial situation. It's their money, they can choose how to distribute those funds.
There are no athletic scholarships to any high school in the United States. That is not allowed.
There are financial aid packages awarded (at the discretion of each individual school) that may act as a scholarship, but the terminology is important from the school's perspective.
Also, each private school determines what they can/will award. Some will base it solely on need, regardless of athletic ability. Others will make their decision based on what that student offers the school (academics, athletics, arts, etc.) regardless of need.
Some schools have the reputation for giving a lot to all good athletes. Some have the rep for just giving it high profile sports (football, boys basketball). Some just don't give out a lot in general.
And the thing to remember is that just because a school is successful in a certain sport year after year, it doesn't mean they are opening up the piggy bank. After a certain amount of consistent success, players want to go there regardless (if they can afford it) to take part in/gain an advantage that future success.
