When a new student starts at American Career College, everyone around them wants to help them succeed.  That’s why we make family an important part of our vocational program—from answering questions up front, to sharing ways to support our school's student along the way.

We're as excited for your school's student as you are. The next several months will be full of challenges and excitement as they learn and prepare for their future career.

"I was a single mother, I needed a career, I needed change, and I needed to do something for myself. I started off as a student. I worked out in the medical field with patients, where I got to work with them one on one. And now I am an instructor. I love what I do. I can't even imagine what I'd be doing right now (if it weren't for ACC)."

Your support is important. We'd love to have you involved from the first admissions interview right on through to school graduation. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

Below are some questions that family members frequently ask:

How do vocational students pay for school?

Every student's situation is different, so our Financial Aid Officers work with students on an individual basis to help them find the funds for which they qualify. Part of their job is to help students keep it all straight and make sure they've filled out the proper forms in the proper manner.

What are the vocational classes like?

Generally speaking, each vocational program is a combination of traditional classroom learning and hands-on clinical and laboratory experience. Most courses also require a school externship. All of this is geared toward preparing your son or daughter for the real world.

We invite all prospective students to visit the school's campus and observe the teaching environment. We'd like to extend that invitation to you as well.

What happens after graduation?

Our job doesn't end when the diplomas and certificates are handed out. We take our career services seriously. We can't guarantee employment, but we can guarantee that we'll do everything we can to help get their career started. We offer help with resume writing, interviewing and other job search skills. American Career College graduates are also welcome to return and audit classes free of charge as long as they're in the health care industry.
