We opened the doors of our first campus in 1976 in Phoenix, Arizona. Our goal was simple. We wanted to change the lives of our students for the better by preparing them for the future. Today, 35 years and more than 35,000 students later, the core of our mission remains the same: to provide high-quality, career-oriented education to meet the needs of students with diverse backgrounds, interests and abilities.
Our commitment is to our students. When you need support, you’ll get it. When you need encouragement, you’ll find it. When you need information, you’ll have it. We endeavor to meet the needs of all our students, regardless of their educational background, age, ethnicity, or cultural orientation. Our faculty care about your education and about you. That’s how we’ve built our reputation as a source of qualified graduates for the health care industry for decades.
We’re proud that Carrington graduates are recognized as knowledgeable, accomplished professionals with the personal and professional skills and confidence to make a seamless transition into the working world.
Our goal is not to just prepare you for a fulfilling career; we want to help each and every one of you grow as individuals. If we can help you find your way towards a brighter future, personally and professionally, then together we will have been successful.
Our broad range of specialized certificate and associate degree programs combine clinical training, theoretical classroom exercises, and real patient interaction to prepare you for success in the real world.
From Medical Assisting, to Registered Nursing, to Dental Hygiene, our allied health care programs are delivered in a focused, professional, and progressive environment by a supportive, dynamic faculty who serve not only as educators, but as coaches and mentors.
We continue to strive for excellence for and from our students, helping you to grow as individuals by instilling in you a philosophy that values not only learning and professionalism, but also contribution and commitment to your community.
Welcome to Carrington College!
