Which One is Right for You? Trade School vs. Community College vs. 4-Year College
What’s the difference between the three choices?
Here are some facts:
All schools can provide you with a quality education – it depends on your choice of what kind of vocation (skill training) or professional career you prefer.
No one situation fits all. Let’s define them further:
Technical (Trade) schools are designed to provide vocational education, or technical skills and are distinguished from four-year colleges by their focus on job-specific training to students who typically seek one of the skilled trades.
2-Year and 4-Year colleges and universities provide academic training for students pursuing careers in professional disciplines that offer associate (2-year), bachelor and graduate programs (4+ years) leading to master’s or doctoral degrees. Universities are generally larger than colleges and offer a wider range of courses and can be made up of multiple schools or colleges.
Until recently, many schools largely adhere to this format but the focus on vocational of other trade schools began to shift in the 1990s toward a curriculum that offers academic as well as technical skills to their students.

Kayla Willis said she was offered more than $900,000 in scholarships, but was so awed she was reluctant to brag about it. After conferring with her proud father, he urged her to share her success because she deserved it.
It was the aftermath that overwhelmed her when her tweet went viral with almost 150,000 likes from all over the world.
Kayla more than qualified for the offers as she posted an 1160 SAT and struts a 3.95 grade point average. She applied to more than 50 schools including Notre Dame, the University of Georgia, and Spelman, but only considered schools that would waive entry fees and 31 complied.
She plans to major in International Business and Spanish at Fisk.
