Habele has just received the 2007-08 tuition schedule from Bethania High School in Palau. Citing rising costs in utilities, teacher cost of living adjustments and basic school supplies the school announced a 16 percent increase in tuition. The school also has added a range of fees (including standardized testing costs) to the 12th grade tuition rate.
To date, Habele donors have responded generously to the needs of our scholarship students. We hope to gather the funds to cover this unanticipated fee hike by the end of summer when we will award our 2007-08 scholarships!
