HOBY’s College Aid Planning program will help make your college dream a reality.

The total amount of student loan debt owed as a country is over $1.2 Trillion; larger than the total amount of credit card debt and auto loans. Two of the main reasons families accrue so much college debt are 1) the inability to prepare/save for college; and 2) difficulty understanding the complicated financial aid process.

HOBY’s CAP program provides assistance to families and Ambassadors through the aid process. We will work you through the financial aid web, ensuring the necessary forms are completed in a timely and accurate manner.
