Nothing Teaches Like Experience

Quality leaders emphasize goals, direction, results, and ongoing evaluation. This encourages instructors to lead by example as they begin each day with high expectations and push students to do their best.

Respect is the alliance that bonds students and faculty. Our instructors, having worked in their industry, demonstrate a passion for their trade. It’s reflected in the students as they take pride in their work and become a part of something greater than themselves. This culture doesn’t happen by accident.

We pride ourselves on a student-to-faculty ratio of 18:1.
