Students can work some hours to reduce their tuition in our work for reduced tuition program.
Work trade is only available to students that plan to stay & learn more than one week.
However if a student is inept or a slacker we reserve the right to exclude this inept slacker from the work for reduced tuition program.
To participate in the work for tuition program you must Pay the first weeks tuition. Enter the information requested on the Tuition application form and submit it to Buccaneer Garden.
Example: A new student checks in for orientation and pays for the first week tuition $100.00 + $25.00 cleaning deposit.
Then that student can work some hrs that week to get up to $70.00 off their tuition for the next week. If the student is a good worker the student may be asked to continue working for more weeks of reduced tuition.
Students who participate in the work for reduced tuition are essentially getting $15.00 an hr. off their tuition when they use my weedeater or $20.00 an hr. if the student uses his/her own weedeater, gas & line. Students can work off up to $70.00 of their next weeks tuition.
We try to get the work done In the cooler part of the day between 7:00 am & 10:00 am or 2:00 pm & 6:00 pm. but most of the work available is out door work so some days we get rained out of work.
Type of work is cleaning common area's, pulling weeds, operating a weed eater, Greenhouse cleaning & construction, or helping with what ever project needs help!
We generally can provide students that want to participate in the work for reduced tuition program with up to 3 hrs of work a day (weather permitting). Sometimes we have a project that requires 4 to 6 hrs of work a day, students participating in the work program will be asked at least a day in advance if they would like to volunteer for the work duty for the project. There is no limit to how long a student can stay in the work for reduced tuition program. we have a lot of work that needs to be done, but the more people volunteer to participate in the work for tuition program the faster the work will get done, so I cannot say how long the work for reduced tuition program will last.
