“I love Arlington Career institute! I completed the paralegal program in May 2019 and enjoyed it so much that I went back for Court Reporting. I just finished taking Medical Terminology with Ms. Sandra and she is the best! We learned so much this term. The class was interesting and had a ton of great information. If you go to ACI and have the opportunity to take Medical Terms with Ms. Sandra do it! You will learn so much.”

“Coming to Arlington Careers was the best decision I’ve ever made. I’ve learned so much and did something I thought would be impossible. The teachers (Mrs.Sandra and Ms.Martinez) are such amazing teachers if you are struggling they won’t leave you hanging. They’ll continue to help you until you finally get it. Also Ms.Candice and Ms.Sharp are always there when you need someone to talk to, they genuinely care about each and every student that walks through their office. This school is worth going to.”
