Financing Opportunities  

         (Please excuse sudden changes of text, occasional dead links, and conflicts of style. We are still under construction)

Detail on financing programs in this location is several months away.  We hope to have meaningful guidance right here by early 2009. 

Currently, there are a number of companies lending money to parents.  The school where you enroll your child can help you make that contact. Be aware of several things with this kind of financing. Usually there is a large loan initiation fee. This makes this kind of financing useful as a long term financing opportunity but not for short term.  Second mortgage, home line account or other, secured financing may give you better terms.  Also we are unclear on typical arrangements between the schools and programs on the one hand and the financing companies on the other. 

Feedback is invited. We will publish selected feedback.  Email

Disclaimer: No  program review, no matter how positive, is a blanket endorsement. No criticism is a blanket condemnation.  When we express our level of confidence in a school or program, that is our subjective opinion with which others might reasonably disagree.  When we assert something as fact, we have done our best to be accurate, but we cannot guarantee that all of our information is accurate and up to date. When we address compliance with our guidelines, you need to remember that these are only OUR guidelines -- not guidelines from an official source.  We have also set the bar very high, and do not expect any school or program to be in total compliance.  It is not appropriate to draw a conclusion of impropriety (or even failure to live up to conventional wisdom) from our lack of confidence in a school or program or from less than perfect conformity to our guidelines.  Some will say we expect too much. Readers are responsible for verifying accuracy of information supplied here prior to acting upon it. We are not responsible for inaccuracies.
