The Down Payment
No application fees and the lowest upfront cost of just $295 to get you started.
The down payment is all you pay until you're hired; we make the remaining balance contingent upon your success.
If you're a recent grad, you only need to pay $195 down!

Your balance is spread out over your first year of teaching, usually in monthly installments and never with interest. Again, you only start paying this balance once you get hired!
