You don’t have to wish this existed when you were younger. You can make sure it’s a choice for the future. 

We’re ditching the higher education funding model that leaves admissions departments scrambling to meet quotas and college graduates in heavy debt. We’ve replaced it with a community-supported model that doesn’t ask students to shoulder the whole cost of education.

That’s because we believe education is an investment we share--after all, education affects all of us, not just the ones in the classroom.
