Ridley-Lowell has helped me significantly with my computer skills and has been very instrumental in deciding what I want to do in the computer field. I have gained a lot of insight and knowledge in a field I had very little knowledge of before I started. I would recommend this school to anybody who is interested in it and would talk very highly of the school and staff.

Ridley-Lowell helped me complete the medical training stated by the military. The Medical Assistant program was fun, exciting and fast paced. I now have a full-time career working in a physicians’ office. For the first time in my life, I enjoy going to work. The Ridley-Lowell staff has been extremely supportive from the day I enrolled to graduation and beyond. Thank you, Ridley-Lowell, for putting my career back on track.

Drew F.
Medical Assistant Graduate

Ridley-Lowell taught me everything I needed to know. Today, the skills Ridley-Lowell taught me saved my patient's life when he dropped because he couldn't breathe in the heat. I performed CPR effectively for 8 mins and 37 secs until the medics arrived with their AED and they jumped his heart. He's going to be fine thanks to my quick persistent skills and action that I learned throughout my time at Ridley. Thank you - you made me appreciate what I do every day. Its not easy, but I love it. Ridley shaped me as an adult and prepared me for my future, including nursing school. I love Ridley-Lowell!

I always knew I had a passion for skin due to my own challenges. The Ridley Esthetics program is excellent and I had a blast the entire time. The staff is wonderful and make sure to teach you all that is needed to help you live out your passion. I also enjoyed getting pampered everyday and pampering others. Making people feel beautiful is what we Estheticians do!

My experience at Ridley-Lowell was great. I enrolled to learn how to do make-up and learned so much more like how to analyze the skin, do facial and body treatments, waxing and use machines like galvanic. The teachers in the beauty school are so amazing. I miss the school, my friends, and my teachers everyday.
