Okay .. well, does my 30 year old daughter count as a "kid?" Probably not to most but she is still MY KID. And what I am going to write about is that had she been able to find a college/school like CollegeAmerica in Colorado Springs, she probably would have finished college right out of high school. Unfortunately, there was nothing like that available at that time. She ended up going two semesters at a local community college but I guess she wasn't ready at that time. She ended up getting married at 20 and that lasted 8 years and then she moved back in with us. (I love having her but I know it is probably not good for her but she can not afford to live on her own YET.) I say "yet" because this January she will graduate from CollegeAmerica after only 15 months, with an AA and up to 8 certifications in "Medical Specialties." She had no money to do this and we're taking care of her financially. The school helped her get student loans as well as getting other grants, and Pell Grant, making it feasible for her to do this. Six months after her graduation she will start paying off her student loan which will amount to about $160.00 a month. They will also help locate her into a job in the medical field. I have to brag, she is carrying a 3.99 gpa and has perfect attendance. What I like about this school, is that they attend 4 weeks, taking only two courses. That 4 weeks is called a "module." There are 15 modules that they complete. By having only two course during that 4 weeks, they are able to concentrate on those two and know that the next 4 weeks will be something entirely different. It's been great for her. They go into school at 8:30 and get out at 2:00. Makes for a shorter day. And they have every Friday, plus the weekends off.
