It's perhaps the most important question we could ask - the question we depend on having the answers to for our very existence.

Why Concorde? Why come to Concorde Career College? What does Concorde have to offer those looking to move forward in their lives, to be trained quickly and comprehensively in a rewarding and fast-growing health care field?

Of course, we think we have those answers - hands-on, real-world training that prepares you fully for Day 1 on the job; accelerated programs that get you into that career as quickly as possible; a family-type atmosphere that is student-centered, community-based and achievement-driven.

But don't take our word for it. We enlisted the help of some Concorde students, or soon-to-be Concorde students to answer the question for us. We asked them to provide "the reason I chose Concorde," and the responses were as varied as they were poignant.

Reflections from the Source

"I chose Concorde because they helped me a lot when I came for my Medical Assistant degree. I had a great experience and knew Concorde would help me succeed once again."

  • Stephanie Medina, Nursing Student

"The reason I chose Concorde was to expand on my career goals. Concorde offers a great physical therapy assistant program that I am proud to a participant in."

  • Kesia Derilus, Future Physical Therapy Assistant

"I chose Concorde because I wanted to attend a school where I knew the staff cared about the students. I've heard good reviews about the school (my mom attended this school), so I knew it was the school I wanted to go to."

"I wanted to go to a school where I can get my Dental Hygiene as soon as possible. Concorde has a great 17-month program that prepares students well. I also have a co-worker who is working as a Registered Dental Hygienist. She graduated from Concorde and told me a lot of great things!"

  • Ann Hee Cho, Dental Hygienist Student

"Because I felt more like a student than just a number. Everyone is super friendly here. I feel like I can relate to a lot of people here. I feel like I will be able to succeed and will have a lot of support."

  • Patricia Baires, Medical Assistant Student

"I chose Concorde to have a better future and a good stable job. And to have a better life for me and my family."

  • Stephanie Herrera, Future Medical Assistant

"I met a few people who have come to this school and had a great experience. The staff is very friendly and informative."

"I chose Concorde because my sisters came to this school, and they are both happy with their careers."

  • Janet Bautista, Future Dental Assistant

So, there you have it. Don't just take our word for it. Listen to what the students have to say and believe is the right place to take that next step in your life, toward a bright future in a fulfilling and fast-growing career in health care!

Opportunity awaits!
