I am in my second year at this community college. The staff is very helpful and are all about student success no matter back ground, age, or personality! Although the school is small the diversity in students and educators is very large. The campus is very safe and flexible with all schedules. The class types are structured, open learning and online. What ever your goals or obstacles are they are behind their students 110% of the way. The cost per credit hour is significantly smaller than all other local schools. The technology and up to date instruction is phenomenal! I am very pleased with my decision to attend John Wood Community College.

As a senior in high school, I looked down on the idea of attending a local community college rather than that of a 4-year state university. There tends to be many high school students with the same thought process, however, as a current student at a John Wood Community College, I can attest that choosing a community college has been my best decision. Financially speaking, John Wood has saved me thousands of dollars through scholarships and their already low tuition costs. Moreover, I am able to still live with my parents, again, cutting down on costs due at the end of each month.
Very flexible! This school offers options for any budget. They have online, classroom courses, hybrid courses availabile. They want to do everything to help you succeed.
