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 take into account 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 perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

Overall Rating:

This is a great school for both maintenance and flight training! I would highly recommend this school to anyone, but especially those pursuing missionary aviation. SMAT has good instructors training to higher standards. I did all of my aviation training at SMAT and am now working as a missionary pilot with AIM AIR. SMAT definitely gave me the tools I need to be here.

The Dick&Betsy DeVos foundation funds this school in one way or another, (Yes! it's that Betsy DeVos). Do the due diligence to research about this clan. Do not blindly choose the place just because of its "Missionary" title, Follow the money, look up the social media, evaluate the quality of education, instructors, and find out about this religious group yourself.

I light up every time someone asks me about this school because I am so blessed to have been able to attend. I graduated from the AMT program back in 2014 and did receive my A&P certificate. As for anything in life, you get out of it what you're willing to put into it. This school is not a "show up to receive an A", you need to put in the time and effort, but it is more than worth it. Yes, it is a mission driven school BUT they work with each student individually to help them find where they belong in aviation. Students all over the world have attended, within the last 3 years alone they have had students from Egypt, South Korea, Uganda, Switzerland, and the list goes on. Aviation makes up its own world network of people, and SMAT has spot in that network. Both my husband and I currently work in aviation thanks to SMAT. If you are looking into getting your A&P and/or becoming a Pilot I highly recommend you look into this school. You can get both within 2 years!! That's hard to beat if you ask me.

SMAT provided me with a professional training environment in which they promoted a high standard of excellence in both their Aircraft Maintenance Technician and Professional Pilot programs. The instructors there fostered a comfortable student/teacher relationship, which greatly enhanced my learning experience.
