Question
QUESTION: I am 16 year old goalie from Canada. I played AAA since peewee and I am interested in playing College Hockey in the U.S. I hear playing Prep school hockey increases your chances of getting a College scholarship. Prep schools are expensive... Do Prep schools have full scholarships?

ANSWER: Matt,

Thank you for writing.  99% of all Prep schools don't provide scholarship because they are expensive and the majortiy of the kids do move on to Div 1 schools.  However, that doesn't mean that ALL prep schools are like that.  I would recommend that you check out this website
http://www.boardingschools.com/how-to-apply/expenses--aid.aspx  They help with funding for prep-schools.

Good Luck
