What our Graduates are saying
“I wasn’t sure if I can do it, come back to school since I had been out of school for so many years, for over 20 something years. And this is a decision that I made, not just for myself, for my family as well. And so I took that leap. And I did have a lot of support from our instructors, from everyone here. We consider ourselves our family. And I did have that support, not just at home, but here as well. Through that support, I was able to accomplish a lot.”
“I love the one-on-one. Since it’s a small classroom, the teachers are more focused on their students, rather than again, like other colleges you have the hundreds, and they don’t really get that one-on-one action that they really need. I love that they can stay behind. So if you need tutoring, they’ll tutor you. And I love that they push us to try and do our best.”
“STVT is like my second home. It was like my second home, because I would come here every day. I loved it, spending time with my instructor, my friends, learning more and more. If I had any questions, I would stay for tutoring, extra help. It was like my second home.”
“It was a pretty easy enrollment. After I walked around the campus and did the interview, she told me it wouldn’t take long. It would just be two weeks to get started for orientation. And once orientation started, Monday came and I was in class. And it was the first time that I did on campus school. Most of the schools that I’ve applied to or gone to, it has always been online.”
