  • We are now offering about 12 courses (more to come!)

    • It may be best to send a postcard or call the school and set up an appointment with the principal or superintendent.
    • Public, Private and Christian schools are a great way to recruit large number of students. They have a tendency to start enrolling students slowly, but increase student numbers over time.
    • Remember, you earn $1000 per section of 25 seats.

  • Ask their interests. “Are you more interested in animals or crops?” “Do you like cattle or horses?” “Are you interested in production or business?”
