At Sullivan, we have a diverse student body. Our students come from different walks and stages of life and there is a beauty to that. Diversity like this enables students to not only learn and grow with each other, but also from each other’s experiences. We cannot use just one word to describe our student body, but, we can say that our students are part of what makes Sullivan what it is, along with our faculty and staff. Our founder, A.R. Sullivan, said the following, “The reputation of a school is measured by the excellence of its graduates. That is why we dedicate ourselves to the success of our students.”
Since 1962, we have created an environment where students from different places and different stages of life can come together, exchange ideas, and learn and that is what makes Sullivan unique. If you want to attend a school where you will learn through a Career-focused curriculum, work with instructors who are passionate about their fields and who will help you succeed, while also taking the next step toward your future, then Sullivan is the place for you.
