Chillicothe is a tiny town in Missouri of less than 10,000. Inside of that town you can find the Grand River Technical School (GRTS), a school with vocational training for adults and helping them find job placement after graduation. One huge advantage of GRTS is that the school offers free childcare services to its students, so parents who work don’t have to worry about paying an extra expense to have their kids watched and safe when they go to school. In 2012, the cost of going to GRTS was $5,450, and the enrollment was 80. It has an excellent retention rate of 95%, and the small town environment and the hands on approach that instructors use is a big part of that number. Most students use some form of financial aid, which can come through scholarships, grants, and loans from the federal government. An admission requires a high school diploma or a GED equivalent. Students have the following programs to choose from inside the program:
- Auto Tech
- Business Tech
- Emergency Medical Services
- Industrial Maintenance
