Ashworth College, BS Marketing, 2023

“I have three (3) degrees with Ashworth College, which has allowed me to place the proper credentials in front of my name and business. This has also afforded me the opportunity to successfully gain promotions in my Law Enforcement career where education requirements needed to be met. With my busy schedule, Ashworth College has allowed me the opportunity to complete these degrees in a way that works best around all that I do.”

James Madison High School, 2023

“Attending James Madison High School allowed me the opportunity to achieve my mom's dream [to see her children finish school] while also giving me back the self-confidence I lost when I started to see myself as a failure. This experience just proved to me that not all students are successful in the traditional way of public education and that is ok.”

New York Institute of Photography, Professional Photography, 2023

“I discovered NYIP and with that a whole new world opened up for me in the field of photography. To be able to have mentors who analyze your work and give you suggestions on how to improve your art has been absolutely priceless. To add to that, to be able to use my camera to its full possible potential has been liberating. I feel my pictures have become better as has my ability to see my subjects from different perspectives.”

New York Institute of Art and Design, Interior Design, 2022

“After a successful career of almost 20 years in the data science field, I decided to embrace what I have always loved: floor plans, furniture showrooms, and beautiful design. I quit my job to fully commit to the NYIAD Interior Design classes and graduated last year. Earlier this year I created my own company, and I wouldn't have had the knowledge and confidence to do it without the NYIAD curriculum!”
