Vocational school a great option for many - AmericaNowNews.com

Is vocational school the best choice for you?

Vocational schools are a great option for kids who don't want to go to a four-year college or university, but still want a chance to make a great living.

Students at vocational or trade schools are eligible for the exact same federal grants and loans as students at four-year colleges.

There are also several federal programs offering aid specifically for students in vo-tech programs.

There's also a federal office of apprenticeships, and they can help you find one in more than 1,000 career fields.  

Because of all of that - guess what? Many vocational students graduate with little or no student loan debt! And there aren't many four-year college students who can say that.
