Congratulations to the Practical Nursing Class of 2019. On July 26, 2019 their graduation has honored with a pinning ceremony. We are very proud of each one of you. Good luck as you enter the field of nursing!




Truck Driving Program

Due to a partnership with the WV Department of Education, ACT is able to reduce tuition for the Truck Driving program. Truck Driving accepts new students every 3 to 4 weeks. . The student will operate a variety of equipment both on our range and over the road. The cost of the 4-6 week program will now be $2,250. A D.O.T. physical is required to start this program.

The first step to apply to any of the above programs is to take a free TABE (adult basic skills) test. You can schedule that test by calling 304-256-3964. Free tutoring is available if needed. We do accept financial aid so make sure you fill out a FAFSA for this school year and mark our school on your application. We also offer monthly interest free payment plans for amounts not covered by aid.

If you have any questions please call our school at 304-256-4615.
