BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As we head into the holiday season it’s easy to find ourselves becoming increasing cynically; the overstocked shelves, the avalanche of television ads and the crazy behavior of harried parents as they strive to fill Christmas lists with toys so sophisticated that in days gone by they could have sent a rocket to the moon.
Given that cynicism, it’s no surprise that we begin to look for something more meaningful to give to our grandchildren, something that will help them now and in the future — something that will make a difference.
As our children marry later, choose to have children in their later 30s or to start a second family in their 50s, the expectation that as grandparents we will be around to help with college expenses and to attend our grandchild’s college graduation becomes more and more remote.
To plan for that many of us will add to our retirement planning the funds required to assist our grandchildren with college should we be there to see it or not.
There is, however, another option, one that will not only allow you to make a significant difference to the future of your grandchild but to make that difference right now and it’s easy: cover the cost of their private school education!
It’s a proven fact children that attend private schools score higher on tests, are most self-motivated and are more likely to be accepted to a college or top 100 universities.
They also head the list for scholarships and following graduation will go on to earn substantially more than their non-degree holding peers.
A further not so well documented advantage to this planning, but visible every day at Florida Prep, is the opportunity for grandparents to become involved in the lives of their grandchildren, to see them learn, grow and play in an environment that encourages the support of the entire family.
Whether it be a science fair, the international festival (where grandma’s dish from the homeland was a major hit) or attending the school field day, your entire family is made welcome on the Florida Prep campus and unlike large faceless public schools, our staff will know your family and your student.
To learn more about the financial planning options available to you we have shared an article originally run on the website Investopedia.
Florida Prep would urge you to speak to a qualified financial consultant before proceeding, however, we found it interesting and decided to include it here.
