Analyzing a Material Culture is a five-part special report on socioeconomic class at ASL and its implications. The report examines classism’s presence at ASL and how it impacts students and the assumptions they have.
Associate Dean of Admissions Ken Craig believes that students’ varying backgrounds provide unique differentiation in how tuition is paid. With the school’s high tuition costs, Craig has seen that many families have companies paying for the fees, or are families working in embassies and have their fees paid through that role. Although there are still families who pay tuition independently, Craig believes ASL “is out of reach for a lot of local families.”
