  • When I first enrolled at Algonquin Careers Academy I was worried especially because I had chosen a new professional field. Although the first few weeks were extremely stressful, the support I received not only from faculty members but also from counselors made it easier to adapt to the new routine. After successfully achieving my academic goals, I was able to find a placement opportunity exactly where I wanted. Then, given my performance, I was offered a job on my last day of placement. All in all, coming back to school and graduating from Algonquin Careers Academy has been one of the best decisions I have ever made and I look forward to a very successful career as a Medical Lab Technician.

  • As a student of Algonquin Careers Academy, I have really appreciated the positive atmosphere the school has provided for me. I have found the faculty to be both encouraging and positive, while always challenging me to do my best. I’ve been shown sincere support both at an educational level and a personal one. I have found myself to be truly succeeding in my studies, which is due to the teacher’s ability not only to educate me, but to assist me in having a true understanding of the legal system. The level of education has gone beyond regular textbook learning, as we are encouraged to have classroom discussions where we are welcome to share educated opinions on topics that are relevant to the world outside of school.

  • I love the fact that it is a fast track program that you are finished in less than a year. The hours work perfectly for my family life and allows me to continue to work in the afternoons.

  • In my opinion, the PSW program was a most valuable learning experience in my career. I enjoyed the very open minded and interaction with the classmates and my instructor. I especially appreciated being taught by Mrs. Godin instructor with real world experience ready to equip us to confront real situations in our professional career.  I really can’t tell you how much your program has helped me look at things differently with more perspective in my new career.
