Scholarships for Trade School

Virginia Technical Academy accepts all major credit cards, cash and personal checks as forms of payment.

We also offer a variety of scholarships to meet the financial needs of our students. Financing options include both state and government options as well as financing directly with Virginia Technical Academy. Although we accept applicants without a G.E.D. or a High School Diploma, only those who are able to provide a High School Diploma or GED are eligible to receive financial aid.

Contact us to speak with an Academy representative about which scholarship option may be best for your specific situation.
