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 a huge number of students. This index doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another.

My experience at this school so far has been so welcoming and I have already learned so much. The director is very helpful and so is the staff and instructors. The students are also amazing, we all learn together and from each other as well so it’s a very nice atmosphere. I look forward to the rest of my course here!

If I could give ZERO stars I would! Avoid this school at all cost !!!!!! THE DIRECTOR ROBERT FERRARA is a CON ARTIST ! (The rest of the staff is very nice and welcoming) , Robert will tell you what you wanna hear just to rail you in then will have you feel like he has a genuine interest for you and your education when he does not .. it’s all about MONEY !!!!!!!!! I caught on to his scam LUCKILY only after being there for about a month, he did not want to give me a text book because “my financial aide didn’t clear” but he gave me a kit which didn’t make any sense .. why even give me anything if that’s the case? So after going back and forth about that situation and then finding out that the course (Nail Technician) that I was told by ROBERT that they offered and that I was very interested (and the main reason why I decided to enroll) really wasn’t a course there I wanted to respectfully withdraw and cancel my financial aid and Loan that I applied for .. I called in to speak to the financial aid lady Andrea (who was VERY sweet and welcoming) about wanting to withdraw she told me that I had to speak to him first , she asked me to come in and speak in person , while I am heading there Robert called my phone and began to talk to me very rudely , I proceeded to tell him we can discuss things when I arrived that’s the reason why I was told to come in anyway , I arrive there it’s clear he was very upset that I caught on to his scheme and did not want to withdraw me I had to contact the police because first he was declining my decision to cancel my financial aid and second because I felt threatened .. my locker is located at the bottom of other lockers he storms over to me hovered over me yelling and demanding I returned the kit that he gave me then told me to get out of his school and wait outside for the cops after I had called them. luckily another student witnessed what happened and decided to speak up to the cops about what she witnessed and informed them that she felt bad for me that’s why she spoke up , she also mentioned to them that she was once in the same situation with the Director as far as not receiving a text book, he told her the same excuse but she called Fafsa and found out that her money had already been dispersed to the school and they demanded that she was given all of her supplies.. even with me being a single mom of 2 and desperately trying to further myself in life Robert Ferrara knew that information and still took advantage of a opportunity to put more money in his pocket .. I am warning everyone PLEASEEEEEEEEE avoid similar situations and head else where ! Just because it’s cheaper don’t always mean it’s better !!!!! The pictures he uses are not even real, the place is a DUMP no real structure .. they advertise Hair Nails etc but only focus on HAIR ! Please do not be FOOLED like me and others who already invested time and felt stuck !!!!!!
