The schools also have partnerships with colleges and universities and provide students a start on their post-secondary education. Students will be ready for college or the workforce and will be competitive on a global level.

Chalk Talk: Student Loan Facts
There are two types of student loans provided by the US government: subsidized and unsubsidized. Subsidized loans are ones for which the government pays the interest while the student is in college. This can make a big difference if the student has a large student loan. Unsubsidized loans are ones for which the government doesn’t pay the interest, and that interest is compounded, or added, to the principle. Usually, a financial aid package will include a mix of the two types, along with grants and any scholarships. A grant is money that’s awarded, usually from specific government programs, sometimes from the college itself or some organization. Grants don’t have to be paid back and are based on economic need. Scholarships are similar to grants in that they don’t have to be paid back, but scholarships usually have a different stipulation than financial need that must be met. Scholarships might be based on academic performance, some demographic information, or some other factor.
