Casa Loma College, Inc. was founded in April 1966 as a California nonprofit postsecondary educational institution offering a high-quality career education in allied health. In 1972 the Vocational Nurse Program was started and graduated thousands of nurses over the next 46 years until the closure of the program in January 2018. In 1989 a branch campus was opened in Los Angeles California, eventually relocating to Hawthorne California in 2004. Nationally accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools in December 2002, the College continued to expand its program offerings to include Nurse Assistant, Medical Assistant, and EMT. In September 2007, the College received degree granting status to award the Associate of Science Degree in Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Emergency and Disaster Management. In 2008 the College expanded again to include the relocation of the main campus to its current facility in Van Nuys, California, the addition of a second branch campus in Anaheim California, and the adding of two programs, Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Medical Insurance Billing and Coding. The Physical Therapist Assistant Program began in 2012, with the program receiving full accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education in 2015. The consolidation of the Hawthorne branch campus with the Anaheim branch campus took place in 2014. In June 2017, the Anaheim Campus was closed and merged with the main campus in Van Nuys. The College currently awards the Associate of Science Degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging and the Associate of Applied Science Degree in Physical Therapist Assistant.
We are very proud of the success of our students and we believe their success is a result of the high-quality education and training at Casa Loma College, our committed instructors and administrators, and the resources we provide to every student.
As a private non-profit California Corporation, Casa Loma College is governed by a Board of Regents.
What People are Saying
I am currently an active student in the DMS evening program. The instructors, Mr. Dhillon and Dr. Arthur, are fantastic, extremely knowledgeable, and always willing to help their students improve and succeed whether in lab or lecture class. You do learn a lot within the 2 year program and are expected to know all the information in order to pass the exams so expect to make time to study your books and especially (most importantly) learning how to scan! Practice is key!
Aside from the program, the school staff are all very friendly and willing to help out with anything you need! All in all, it's really up to the student to make use of their time here and take advantage of the resources offered at CLC. My youngest brother graduated from Casa Loma College and currently has a great job so I know it's within my reach to succeed in my future career.
I am a recent graduate of Casa Loma's Physical Therapist Assistant Program. The PTA program here is top notch. The faculty and staff really care about you and want you to succeed. I got accepted into 2 PTA programs and I chose this one after having my interview and seeing how passionate they were about Physical Therapy and teaching. I am so glad that I chose this program over the other. You get personalized teaching throughout the program because of the low student to teacher ratio. I felt that this helped me refine my skills to succeed.
The faculty also gets you prepared for your clinical rotations. My Clinical Instructors said that our school did a really good job preparing me for my rotation and that Casa Loma has a good reputation for PTA's. I was able to perform at a high level as a PTA during my rotation thanks to the faculty.
I feel more than ready to succeed as a PTA after my schooling here. I was able to pass my boards on my first try and I was able to get a job immediately after I graduated. I have nothing but great things to say about this program! I absolutely loved it here!!!
I started to inquire from this institution doing my best to get into the PTA program, staff members were very friendly and accomodating. I did my requirements with very little hope because of my finanancial situation, but the administration knew I really wanted to do this and I got accepted as a student after going through all the tests, procedures, and interviews. Financial department did what they can to pull out all the necessary resources for me to approved for student loans, professors are very adept and knowledgeable in their field of expertise as well. After graduating, they worked with the students nonstop through grueling long review classes before taking the boards to ensure students will do exceptionally well.
Long story short, I started with nothing... I graduated, passed my boards, became a licensed profession. I am currently doing Home Health and I couldn't be any happier. I owe my success to each and everyone from this prestigious institution.
