Trade schools in Los Angeles are built on a solid foundation of academic experience, especially Advanced College in South Gate. The founders of Advanced College had 40 years of experience when they opened their own institute of higher learning in 1999, which means Advanced College was student-oriented from day one. Our reputation as a leading vocational nursing school in Los Angeles is well-established, but that is just the beginning. Our expansive South Gate Campus has grown in our time as a school in order to make room for our daily operations. However, our expansion goes beyond the boundaries of our walls.
Now students can pursue online associate degrees. With the exception of one, (Surgical Technology) all of the Advanced College online associates degree programs can be taken from anywhere in the world, and from the privacy of your own home. Those programs are as follows:
Accounting: Land a job as an accounting technician, payroll clerk or any number of related positions in the public, private, or nonprofit sectors.
Business Administration: Develop a wide-ranging understanding of management, business software, accounting, marketing and more.
Healthcare Management: Become an office manager or admissions coordinator in a hospital, clinic or long-term care facility (an in-demand field that is currently growing at the speed of light!).
Medical Assistant: Provide certain types of hands-on care for patients in addition to administrative and clerical duties. Medical assistants are arguably the backbone of the medical industry.
Advanced College is also popular among international students looking to spend their studies at an esteemed U.S. college located in one of the most exciting, cultural vibrant cities in the country. Advanced College is a short drive or bus ride from Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood, Downtown Los Angeles itself, and countless world-famous beaches.
Advanced College has received authorization under Federal law to enroll non-immigrant students under the Department of Homeland Securities, issuing F1 and M1 student visas. Non-immigrant students can enroll into entering certificate or associate degree programs, including the study of English as a Second Language.
We are what some students label an I-20 approved school.
