Financial Aid

Education is important for those who wish to elevate themselves to a better life. New Castle School of Trades believes that the opportunity to gain a great education should not only be a privilege, but a commonly realized right for all people.

Lack of financial resources should not be the determining factor in whether someone has the means to better themselves. We feel compelled to assist those students who, without financial aid, would be unable to attend New Castle School of Trades.

Therefore, we offer many different options to help you attain the education you wish to experience. The following programs are available to those who qualify.
