Student Success is Built on Trust, Transparency, and Commitment

Student satisfaction drives our decision-making and helps us regularly adapt to the needs of our students. All students are surveyed at the completion of each five-week term and are asked to provide feedback on their overall course experience, instructor support, confidence in their skill building, and more. We are proud of our high student satisfaction rates, consistently reaching our goals of 90% or higher each term. We value transparency and have committed to posting the complete survey results each term for prospective students and active students to review. 



Developing trust builds better relationships, and enables us to deliver better experiences and outcomes for our students.


Transparency strengthens accountability. We make data readily available, with student satisfaction surveys conducted each term.


Commitment to student success is what drives us, from the first day of class, all the way through program completion and job preparation.
