Your Net Cost vs. The "Sticker" Price

Barton offers a variety of benefits that larger schools simply can't match - like small classes, attentive professors, and instant access to every opportunity.

And, when you look at the bottom line (after you factor in scholarships and other aid), Barton can actually cost less than some of those big-name, little-attention universities.
