Thanks for your insightful comment, Breanna! It's a common misconception that tuition is the sole barrier of college admissions, because that economic barrier starts WAY before a student's senior year. Companies like Crimson Education are getting tens of thousands of dollars from high school FRESHMEN to make a plan for them for their next four years, putting upper class families at an extreme advantage in the admissions process.
Also, your idea of contacting Ivy League schools is definitely something we will consider! Contrary to popular belief, many elite institutions want to admit more low-income students for two reasons:
1. It's the right thing to do and helps empower low-income communities
2. It boosts their rankings on sites like US News & World Report
So, they would definitely have an interest in working with us to help empower low-income students!
