  1. orchid d

    This is the best option for me as I can only pay $500 per week!

  2. Tonya Davis

    OMG I’m so happy this school has financing. They don’t charge any extra fees

  3. Stephanie Santos

    I honestly can’t say how much this financing option helped me in the 5 weekend program. Without it I don’t know if I could have joined. This is the BEST school because they are so flexible and they care so much about their students it’s like a family here
