TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, BUT IT IS TRUE: How does Praxis College do it?
First of all, It is not free.
You are just not the one paying the tuition.
Praxis College is compensated $6,000 for each student who graduates from a number of Oklahoma based corporations. While our stated tuition rate with the OBPVS is $9,000 these companies get a "bulk rate" price.
We have never, in over 125 years, had our students take out soul crushing, life destroying, government grants or other student loans.
Next, Tuition is not our only source of revenue.
ALL massage schools Nation-wide require the student to perform hours of service, that are charged to the public, while the student works for free. Each student is given a portion of the money generated by your clinical work each week, by graduation you will be given over $7,000 as a stipend.
ADDITIONAL SOURCES OF REVENUE
All of our faculty, mentors, and staff make their livelihood doing massage, and do not have to rely on being paid to teach. Teaching should be a privilege, not an occupation. The only thing a person who does not make their living doing massage knows to teach, is how to fail at massage.
Many of our alumni voluntarily financially support the college. They know the value of the knowledge we have given.
Since we never accept TIPs, due to the unprofessional nature of taking them. Many of our clients knowing that the student is paid, wish to support future students by donating in the student's name to the scholarship fund out of appreciation for superior service.
Our unique situation and structure keeps our expenses low. Our low overhead means we do not have to price gouge with any tuition. Some of the things that allows this are listed below.
We do not have:
- Real estate expense. We OWN rather than rent/lease all of our buildings. We own property that generate income for the college.
- A corporate board that demands profits over quality education.
- Stockholders/family member investors that expect the highest return on their investment.
- Recruiters who work on commission, loan managers or Administrative staff .
- An advertising firm, or advertising expenses. Because we do not advertise.
