Student Success:

"I want to say that I owe my livelihood to this school. They were able to help me pass CompTIA Security+ 501. I had taken the test 5 times and paying out of pocket each time prior to attending this school. With their mentoring and tireless efforts to not let me give up, they provided me the tools I needed to pass. They offered me free tutoring at a time that was convenient for my schedule and offered free test prep classes and software. The school even paid for my vouchers which saved me hundreds of dollars. What school does that? I would highly recommend this school for any potential student looking for a degree or certification." – Mathew M. Active Student, Class of '21
