    Host: How many schools should my child apply to?

    Andrew Battaile: It is really up to you, it's as to how many schools you would like to apply to. Most of the time, private schools do have application fees associated with applying. So it could be anything from $20-50-200 at the most usually. If you can afford it you can apply to as many as you want to. However, also some of the schools are in systems where they dont allow you to apply to one or two schools that are associated with each other. If that is the case you have to do your research and find out if you can apply to more than one or two of the schools that are associated with each other in a certain system.
