Carrington has done everything and more to suit my needs a private college. I’ve been wanting to become a Registered Veterinary Technician for years. But when the economy took a bad turn, I had a very difficult time finding an institution that could take me in. Most of the vocational schools I looked into were on the opposite side of the state, and community colleges were out of the question (with everyone suddenly going back to get a degree). I had just had two children and felt like the time to pursue my career was drifting further and further away. I searched high and low for a school to meet my needs. When finally, a friend told me that a school I had already looked at (Western Career College) had actually changed their name to Carrington College. I looked them up right away and found that they had just built a campus within driving distance! I called immediately and the rest is history. Now I am in my second out of five terms, with exceptional grades, and even the head of my class’ Student Advisory. To this day, I still cannot find one thing wrong with the curriculum or the staff that has brought me to this point. The equipment is up to par on the latest technology, the assignments are educational and informative, and the teachers are always available when needed. I drive an hour and a half away from home four days a week to be here at this school because I will do anything to get my degree. I am so thankful that a campus has finally been established in southern California. I can honestly say, I don’t know where I would be today without it.
