Based in High Point, North Carolina, Brittain Academy is a private Christian school that offers high school diplomas to students of every age. Since the school is not eligible for federal support, tuition is Brittain’s only source of funding for operating expenses. So when a Lendr rep contacted owner Dr. Belinda Brittain, she was more than happy to give an initial $2,000 cash advance a try. Their continued partnership has since helped the school to move into a new building and even fund a chemistry lab.

    What challenges do private schools face?

    Brittain Academy at Thomasville Prep

    Since we're a private school, we don't get federal funds. The only thing that keeps you afloat is tuition. It can be rough in the summertime—or sometimes Christmas—if you haven't been able to save.

    How did you choose Lendr?

    Someone called the school and asked if we could benefit from a cash advance. We started by doing a $2,000 advance. Payback was a percentage of each credit card swipe.
