Taking the first steps towards online school might include a lot of questions about what payment options are available. Keep reading to find out how JMHS can help you affordably earn a DEAC-accredited high school diploma.

Does JMHS offer any student loans?

One of the core goals of JMHS is to provide a solid curriculum that prepares students with the foundational education they’ll need for the future, whether they choose to enter the workforce immediately, begin college, or start a career training program. While many private schools offer payment options including student loans, JMHS does not. This is because we want to ensure that your tuition remains low-cost. Interest rates on student loans, even for high school, can be extraordinarily high. Some of the more reputable lending options, such as Sallie Mae, have interest rates starting at seven percent. You may be able to find something lower elsewhere depending on your or your co-signer’s credit score, but no matter what rate you receive, you’ll be paying more than what the actual price tag of your tuition is.

Is JMHS affordable?

In short, yes! JMHS believes education should be affordable and accessible for everyone, so rather than those interest-heavy loan options, we keep our tuition costs low. We do know, though, that not everyone is able to pay the full price of tuition up-front. Instead, there are monthly payment plans available, so you can work within your budget to ensure you get the education you need and deserve. Plus, monthly payment plans have no-interest, so the price you see is the price you pay. That not only includes study materials like eBooks, but also accreditation from the U.S. Department of Education-recognized Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC). The DEAC sets forth rigorous standards that need to be reevaluated every three years, so you can feel confident that you’re receiving a quality education with JMHS. In addition, if you’ve already started high school and have some credits under your belt, you can save even more on tuition. You can receive a $30 tuition reduction per accepted credit for courses you’ve already completed, with the ability to transfer up to 17 credits. All you have to do is submit an official copy of your transcript and our registrar will assess which classes are eligible for the credit.

Study affordably with JMHS

In addition to low-cost, interest-free tuition, JMHS courses are all self-paced and online, so you can study when and where it works best for you.
