What about other school costs?by Dennis Stoesz, Goshen, Ind.
Regarding “Mennonite Higher Education May Be Cheaper Than You Think,” (Jan. 22,): Will you be featuring the tuition costs of Mennonite private education at the high schools and middle schools? It would be helpful to see what the costs are across the United States and what congregations and families are doing.
The cost of tuition at the Mennonite secondary level has increased significantly the last 10 years. Total costs amount to about $7,000 a year based on having one of our children recently graduate from a Mennonite middle/high school after attending six years (this does not include room and board). Since there is no financial aid available from the government on this level of education, how do other families, congregations and the high schools and middle schools make ends meet?
Editor’s note: The series we are currently publishing focuses only on higher education.
