The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

I am currently a student here taking the combination welding program. This school is everything I was expecting from it. Staff is professional and my I have developed good friendships with my peers. Also I am a veteran and Kenny who is staff here/army retired has been very helpful to me on many different occasions. He was a welder in the army and although he is not an instructor here he has no problem helping teach students and putting a helmet on an striking an arc. Stellar person. Great school.

My experience at apex was amazing. The school has a family feel to it. Every one is extremely caring and will do whatever they can to make sure your comfortable. The staff is amazing when you first walk in the school you are greeted every single day with a smile from Ms terry which always gave me a boost of energy. All of the staff is always willing to accommodate you with whatever they can from tutoring, make up and even religious things. As a Muslim woman I attended Apex during Ramadan and the staff assigned a room for prayer being that I had to pray a couple times a day during my hours I had class. I love apex for that. While in Apex I attended the construction course. This course has some of every trade in it from plumbing to electrical to my favorite Carpentry and building. My favorite and most helpful instructors were Mr Simpson, Mr funderberg and Mr Prince. These instructors checked on my class every segment and helped us along the way with anything we needed help with without complaints. They made learning fun and gave us so much information. I really feel if they could, they would have gave us all the knowledge they had. I am very confident that when I enter the construction industry I'm going to be more then ready. I am happy to be apart of the apex family and I would and have already referred many people here for their trades. Thanks Apex

My stepson recently graduated from Apex and it has been a true blessing. He chose the welding program and Mr. Kenny helped guide him throughout. He was just recently hired at a great company and his future is looking bright! From choosing a field and registering for class to graduation, the staff shows a lot of care and support for the students. I will definitely recommend Apex to our friends/family.
