Cares Act 

Academy of Career Training Barbering & Beauty School © ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. 

The Academy of Career Training signed and returned to the Department of Education the Certification and Agreement.

The Academy of Career Training has been allocated funds for distributing to students under the higher education emergency relief fund, under the Cares Act, and received these funds on 7/22/2020. These funds will be distributed to all Title IV students who have graduated since the President of the United States signed the bill on March 27, 2020, and to all currently enrolled Title IV students. Each student who qualifies will receive an equal portion by dividing the number of Title IV students into the funds allocated to the school for the students' potion. This is a grant and does not have to be paid back but can only be used for food, housing, course material, technology, health care, and child care due to disruption caused by CO-VID. We will report in 30 days the amount the school received, how many students were allocated these funds, and the amount each received.  For detailed information on reporting:​ CARES ACT Reporting on HEERF Funds
