As many of you know I've been kicking this around for a while. Well.....I've applied for a grant to go to private school and it has been approved and funded. I am off tomorrow for my pre school physical and drug screen. This has been a long time coming and still a long road to travel but the start is here.

Great to hear sir! Now we just have to find a replacement bench warmer.


It's a great thing you took time to study and didn't rush it. Remember all you've learned, you'll do great!

Congrats, and good luck on your adventure, Andre.

I've been a "bench warmer" around here for quite a while also, but I'll have the cash later today (Friday) to be able to pay for school, so I'll be beginning my adventure soon too.

Congratulations, I hope you find its everything you thought it is and then some... if you have time... can write us a diary of your school. Those are very interesting.

I'm in Louisiana and the state has a grant for persons with disabilities. I was advised of this grant via the school I wanted to attend. I applied for it thinking there is nothing wrong with me but the fact that I am a diabetic. Well turns out the state deems this a disability. The process took from about Thanksgiving until yesterday about 2pm. The school registration fee and physical fee is totally paid for. I have a zero out of pocket for this school. I went this morning for my preschool dot physical and passed it with flying colors. I was issued a one year card because of my diabetes I start school march 7th for an 8 week 2 day a week program.
