"I was very intimidated coming back to school after so many years…I have been at Cap for almost a year now and it has been one of the most positive experiences of my life. All my Instructors have made me feel very comfortable, giving me the confidence I needed to excel in my courses. For returning students young and old, I think Cap is the perfect environment for learning at a pace that works for each individual."Tom H.
"All of the ABE teachers have had a huge impact on my life, have encouraged me, have answered all of my questions regardless of whether or not they had anything to do with the curriculum, and have inspired me. There is nothing more a student could ask for from a teacher."
"I know there were other options to help me prepare my upgrading for University, but I wanted something "hands-on" and … I wanted to have interaction with my classmates and to have teacher one-on-one time…I always feel like there is help when I need it, even through email. The teachers have always made themselves very available to assist."
"Going back to school is always hard, especially when you are past your "school years". The instructors here make it easy and fun. I never thought that I would be able to achieve my goals, but thanks to the confidence that my teachers have instilled in me, I know I am able to accomplish what I want and so much more. The instructors have opened up doors for me that I never knew were there."
"The ABE instructors actually cared and believed in me from day one, and never lost patience even when I became short tempered in frustration (which is often -sorry!). So overall, my experience in ABE was amazing. I now have so much confidence and I accomplished the goal that I had been dreaming of for so long. I never did well in high school, I nearly failed every class and I had no motivation or goals in life. When I started in ABE I never really thought I could make it into Veterinary school, and I still cannot believe I actually made it, but thanks to the ABE department, I achieved the hardest thing I will ever do in my life."
