“If I can explain it in one word, I am content, and happy, and comfortable. I know it’s because of my degrees I was able to be where I’m at today. If it weren’t for my degrees, I think I would still be doing housekeeping.”

“You can take any job, even if it makes a lot of money, but if you don’t love what you do, it’s not worth it. I actually love the medical field. I didn’t even know I loved the medical field. If it were not for CollegeAmerica I would not have put my foot in the door of something that I love.”

- Kaytee Lacour
School of Healthcare

“CollegeAmerica has the accelerated courses, which was nicer being an older student going back to college. I didn’t want to spend four years on an education, because I had waited so long from high school going back to school. I wanted something that would meet my needs, faster.”

- Krista Crawford

“Before I even started college, I was shy. I was not very confident in what I was doing. I couldn’t tell anybody what I was doing in my future. I run Mountain Bytes, LLC. I service in home computers for my clients. I repair, troubleshoot, the whole nine yards. I felt a lot more confident in a lot of what I do in my career.”

- Reid Anderson

“I have a specialty. I have a career. It’s like nothing I’ve ever dreamt I could feel before! I’m a stronger person. I’m better for my kids, better for our family. I make a lot more money now. In general, I feel like an actual career person, like a member of society really contributing the most that I can. The confidence that gave me was unbelievable. I just know I can do things now.”
