Cornell University, Princeton University and Dartmouth College are among 11 private schools that have joined the Say Yes to Education program best known for providing high school students a tuition-free path to college.
 
Say Yes founder George Weiss said Wednesday that the new additions bring to 54 the number in the Say Yes Higher Education Compact, whose members waive tuition for eligible students.
 
Say Yes began by working with small groups of students but has shifted to work with entire cities. In Syracuse and Buffalo, any public or charter school graduate can get a scholarship.
 
The newly added colleges also include Hamilton, Pomona and Rhodes colleges; Paul Smith's College of the Adirondacks; Vanderbilt, Rice and Denison universities; and Sewanee: The University of the South.
