Even if you can't afford to do it and they want your kid, most have significant endowments and can and will provide significant financial assistance.

Well Said if you have never had your kid experience prep school don't bash it because you have no idea what you are talking about. if you can afford to do it you will never regret it BEST MONEY EVER SPENT

My friend went to Taft and now he's in construction.

What is the problem with construction. Most tradespersons will have learned a lifelong skill, zero college debt, health benefits and an annuity before your child even graduates

Taft was 60k at the time with four years of his school made it cost 240k plus college costs, then construction. Nothing wrong with construction, just that Prep did nothing as per the statement that it's worth every penny spent.

I have friends that went to colleges not listed on anyone's top 50's that own their own companies or are highly successful on Wall Street. I don't think anyone is going to argue that success is automatic if you go to an elite prep school or college, NOTHING is. Conversely, that you are doomed if you do not go to a highly regarded college. I think most rationale people would agree elite prep school to elite college is going to open up more opportunities initially out of school. From that point on its on the person and the degrees are for the most part office decorations, though there certainly are stronger networking channels afforded due to association. If you disagree with any of the above, well you need to get out a little more and see the world.

Prep Schools are great for cultivating friendships and networking as well as forming better study habits. However the same can be done in a solid public school. The difference is some universities would rather accept a student from a prep school vs public as they generally are tougher academically. Any decent college coach will tell you they look at Founders league first before almost every public school except a few powerhouses to recruit. Kids are generally older and more mature.

A question purely conjecture looking for others opinions but I'm thinking there may be some sort of abbreviated spring season if vaccines can be administered in a timely fashion. I'm hopeful but not holding my breath

Its not of course. its more like do it at your own discretion but we prefer that you didn't. Just had a zoom meeting as we are heading into the break - where that exact question was asked of the administration. The question was asked about sports in general. The response was basically while we cant tell you what to do at home, you signed a social contract, there are rules in place depending upon where you live re gatherings, you will be coming back and will have to quarantine 2 weeks before return., etc . . .So while kids can play with their local teams its not being done with the blessings of the administration and I gathered they would preferred that you did not.

Thanks for the guidance. We are leaning towards not playing with the exception of outdoor workouts.
