Paying for college can be daunting. Rising tuition costs and expenses such as food, housing, and books cause concern and leave many parents questioning whether and how they can afford college. But some parents are making it work by finding ways to lower costs. This new book reveals their strategies.

Please join Science Leadership Academy for an evening with Ron Lieber, author of The Price You Pay for College: An Entirely New Roadmap for the Biggest Financial Decision Your Family Will Ever Make (now on the New York Times Best Seller List!). This illuminating Q&A event on on March 24, 2021 at 7:00 PM (EST) is hosted by incoming SLA parent, Sara Goldrick-Rab. Sara is a Temple University Professor, author of Paying the Price and was featured on the Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

We invite you to purchase The Price You Pay for College at your favorite local bookseller (more about the book here.) and then join us for the program.

The suggested donation amount is $10.00. You will receive a zoom link and form, to submit questions in advance, immediately after payment. Please register here .


This session is open to the public. We welcome your support of Science Leadership Academy (SLA), a public high school in Philadelphia that promotes inquiry-based learning. Most SLA students come from economically disadvantaged families and two-thirds are from racial minoritized backgrounds. Support from this event enables internships and other supplemental programming.
