At City College we are providing an extraordinary educational experience.

As our Regional Director David “Skip” Higley states it so clearly “we want students to know that this is a way of life.”

Each department at City College has a very important role to our students’ success.

  • Admissions: we understand the expectations students must carry into the classroom
  • Financial Aid: finances education and finds a balance between assisting students while supporting the regulatory interests of the College
  • Career Services: motivating our graduates and current students in developing habits that lead to a successful career
  • Our Faculty: does not teach subjects, but people
  • Our Support Staff: interacts with students providing another opportunity to reinforce their desire to succeed
  • Our Administrative Staff: ensures support and direction for every student to accomplish their goals
