Proven Success: 86% Completion and 100% Employment of our Graduates
From the application process, to our unique mix of courses and teaching styles, to our ongoing support through continuing education; our students have what they need to complete their programs and start working in their profession. Accreditors are looking for a 60% completion rate and a 70% employment rate which we are able to maintain and exceed even in our small school environment.
Hands-On Focus: Practice the Skills Needed to Connect Concepts and Start Working
Our programs focus on clinical application to help you understand the concepts you need to be successful. Rather than just working out of a book or seeing someone demonstrate a skill, we offer students in every program a hands-on educational experience. Our students in Veterinary Technology and Veterinary Assisting work with real patients in a real clinical environment while they learn. Our Practice Management students work through projects that allow them to apply what they learn directly to their business through policies, marketing plans, and more.

I just have to say thank you to Apex for setting up this wonderful experience. I really didn't think I could enjoy myself as much as I did working with these beautiful creatures. Lynn and Dr. Romy were so welcoming and it only made the experience more memorable and meaningful. An The group of students that came was an enthusiastic group! Thank you Doctor Crane and Ria for coming along in support as we all handled cow feces, cow saliva, administered needed injections and took temperatures ..this opportunity to complete some of our AVMA tasks did not feel just like "checking things off". It was handled with such care that it truly showed the passion they have for their careers . Lynn handled those calves with compassion and gentleness as though they were her calves. Listening to Dr. Romy talk, shows how passionate she is about her job. She is so positive and uplifting and seeing how she talks to her clients, it's just a continual reminder of why we get into this business. I attended to complete my tasks..but left with so much more.
Thank you again!!

Apex has been a transformational experience for me.
The instructors want you to succeed. Apex allowed me to be a self-learner and to make contributions I otherwise would not have made. I am grateful for a set of colleagues I want to keep close forever. If you have the chance to experience the plethora of opportunities and networking this school offers, do not pass it up.

The dedication care and compassion the staff has here is unmatched. Apex will be a benchmark in veterinary medicine and an elite educational experience.

It was definitely a fantastic experience! Lynn and Dr. Romy were great - informative, patient, and enthusiastic. We really got to learn a lot about cows (or I guess I should say about cattle, since our last was a steer and not a cow). It was really a wonderful day and well worth the drive.
