HOW do i raise money to pay for my tuition?
All students will have a personalized funding page to share with friends and family. We will come alongside you with fundraising ideas and have seen alumni students raise funds through a variety of creative outlets including selling handmade items, business sponsorships, bake sales, church sponsorships, brochure fundraisers, donations from friends and family, and more. It takes hard work, but having the payment plan helps to keep you focused and not overwhelmed by the total cost.
