Gilmour Academy ~ handful of area kids

What does this say about SSA. Same league but kids willing to leave the area. Yikes.

Boarding school is all about the aid package.  I know people that paid less than 10 for SSA.  And I know someone that paid half for a boarding school in VA for lacrosse.

It says SSA is much more to difficult to get accepted into than Gilmour.

Gilmour Academy is a pretty good place to play hockey, too. I'm a Pittsburgh guy but I went to college in Cleveland and they're legendary out there.

One of the prep coaches at Gilmour is from Pittsburgh so he has a connection to the area. I think their goalie coach is from this area as well.

Two former AAA girls that I have ties to (both female) were accepted to SSA to play on their prep girls team, but the "aid" package still would have cost both >$18k a year including boarding.  Neither accepted as it was too expensive.  Both were subsequently cut from PPE.   The other 2-3 girls who were on their PPE team and accepted the SSA spot were kept on the PPE team.

(At the time the head coach of PPE girls was also the head coach of SSA girls).
