From Apollo College to Carrington College – Spokane

March 7, 2011

spokane campusDid you know that Carrington College – Spokane campus started life back in September 1998 as Apollo College – Spokane campus?  That first semester 13 years ago, many people in Spokane often thought of Apollo College as ‘just another registered nursing school’ or ‘just a dental school’.  They were wrong.  Although we had just 65 students in 4 programs, working on second-hand desks in a building we shared with a telemarketing center, we still offered our students so much more than ‘just an education at a medical school’.

Our humble beginnings are a far cry from the beautiful Spokane campus we all enjoy today at Carrington College.  With modern classrooms, up-to-date laboratories and a brand new massage therapy clinic, our students don’t think of us as ‘just another Spokane massage therapy school’, as a medical assistant school, or even ‘just a career college’.  Today, the students at Carrington College – Spokane campus have 8 healthcare programs to choose from – Dental Assisting, Massage Therapy, Medical Assisting, Medical Billing and Coding, Medical Office Management, Medical Radiography, and Pharmacy Technology.

For Carrington College students, we know we’re so much more than ‘just another health care school…’, because while our facilities have improved dramatically, our philosophy remains the same; we’re here to give our students real world training, and to help them find their way.
