Since many of AIM Academy's students and graduates benefit from government loans, grants, and bursaries, AIM Academy strongly reminds everyone that they have a responsibility to repay their loans and meet their commitments. The viability of loan programs in many provinces, states, and countries rests upon the appreciation that everyone gains when financial commitments are honoured.
