New York Film Academy

We call this school an "engine of inequality" because very few students come from working-class and low-income family backgrounds, and it falls in the bottom 5% of all four-year colleges nationwide for its extraordinarily low enrollment of freshmen who receive Pell Grants, a type of federal financial aid for low-income students. This college is not very socioeconomically diverse. If this is important to you, use this website to identify similar colleges or colleges in your area that may be more diverse or affordable and that graduate a high percentage of students.
