(from the Richmond Times-Dispatch) A private high school in Richmond, Virginia, is simplifying financial aid. Saint Gertrude High School is rolling out a flexible tuition model in which families pay what they can afford without going through a traditional financial aid application process. Instead of applying and then seeing how much they would receive in financial aid, parents — both current and prospective — can use an online calculator to estimate the cost of attending. Full tuition at the all-girls Catholic school is $18,530 per year, and currently about two in five families receive aid. Every family will pay at least 20 percent of the full rate.
