We enter the classroom, bright eyed and full of eagerness to learn of the explorations of our future chosen careers. While we sit comfortably, (for the most part), in our well-lit educational environment, notebooks blank and our pens waiting to start filling the pages with unknown and new information. The instructor really doesn’t share with you the reality, the fears, and the hard work that goes into

Great place to receive a degree in sonography. Best professionals ever! They do not tip toe around you, you will have to prove yourself. I quit my job. But it was well worth it. The program director is a scanning encyclopedia. Super helpful in the lab. Other instructors also are very knowledgeable and ready to help. Super pleasant people in admissions. Great clinical coordinator Mr. Colin’s. He takes time to find you an externship according to your preferences, personality and scanning skills. He is personable and caring. If you make Casa Loma your choice, please make acquaintance of Mr. Cuellar. He is very helpful with student loans and other financial issues one might encounter. With that being said, studying at Casa Loma is not a walk in the park: tons of quizzes, tests, and passing all the competencies on a deadline. Yet, I had no problems passing all of my boards one after another and landed a job in 2 months after graduating. Anyway, in a nutshell: great college, very recommended!!!

I would totally give Casa Loma College a 10 out of 5 if I could. My wife went there. Their DMS program is phenomenal. My wife’s original college closed on her and other 30+ people in her class. Casa Loma became her new home. They were strict, and even kicked a couple of students out. My wife constantly had quizzes and tests, and had to pass all kids of competencies almost weekly, yet, they made her well prepared. She was supplied with best ever externship site and passed 3 of her board exams (registries) within less then 40 days. I am very proud of my wife as she is a smart cookie, yet, it wouldn’t be possible without the professional guidance and support she received from Casa Loma College. And listen to this, a couple days ago we received a letter from the Bureau of Postsecondary education saying that my wife’s loan is going to be reduced in the amount of over $9,000. We didn’t even have to fill out much paperwork, all the documents were managed by Casa Loma’s financial adviser Mr. Cuellar, who filed the paperwork and constantly followed up in the process of investigation. We are super excited that we have almost 10k less in loan to pay, since the sudden closure of my wife’s previous college. All in all, huge thanks to the DMS program’s director Mr. Dhillon, clinical coordinator Mr. Collins, the admissions and, of course, the amazing instructors. If you choose Casa Loma College, you have to work hard, but I promise you, it will be worth it!

First of, I like to say a huge thank you the teachers and staffs that helped me through the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program!
This program is a challenging program, but if you are up to it and willing to dedicate your time and listen, you will succeed in this field. I graduated in January 2018 and passed my SPI in August 2017, passed my OB/GYN in March 2018, passed my RVT in September 2018, and now I’m scheduled to take my Abdomen in December. Dr. Bahaa is a huge help and will do anything in his power to help you pass any board exam. For the whole entire program, Dr. Bahaa was our main teacher and I learned literally everything from this intelligent man. I don’t have enough words to put together to show how much I appreciate him.
Finally, after 7 months of working I was offered a full-time position at another hospital with amazing pay and benefits! I wouldn’t be where I’m at if it wasn’t for Casa Loma College. You all did an amazing job, and you all just got yourself another successful alumni Sonographer!
Thank you for everything!!!

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!!!

It’s not the prettiest or the biggest, but Casa Loma College, Van Nuys is an amazing place. The halls are filled with smiles from staff and the class rooms are overflowing with knowledge. I just finished the PTA program and I can honestly tell you it was an over all AMAZING experience. My instructors were dedicated and attentive. They made sure we understood the material and if not, they were always available during open lab for questions. If you’re thinking about checking out CLC, stop reading this and go now! I can only speak with regards to the PTA program when I say you won’t regret it, however, I am positive the other programs are ran with the same tenacity. CLC has changed my life and it will change yours too. All it takes is a little dedication and the willingness to take a risk. Thank you to everyone at CLC, best call I ever made!

I am a sonographer and our company accepts students from several schools offering the DMS program. I am in charge of training them and so far my best students have come from Casa Loma College. Their program is great and prepares the students to come out in the field. They have great instructors and director is always on top of things making sure the student’s externship runs smoothly.

This is a great college! All of the instructors have been AMAZING thus far! I highly recommend this college if you’re looking into a career in sonography. This school has found a genius way to combine 4+ years of education into 2 short years. The program is well thought out!

I’m currently enrolled in the DMS program and I am pretty happy with my decision in choosing this school to get my career started. The staff is very helpful and the instructors are amazing as well! I’ve never seen more dedicated instructors. I have to say that this course does have its challenges but that’s why you have to really focus and study!! Overall, I’m very happy with this school and I can’t wait to excel further into the program.

I am not a student at Casa Loma College, but rather the office manager at West Point Physical Therapy where we allow Casa Loma College – Physical Therapy Assistant students conduct their clinical rotations. We are in our first week of the current rotation and everything has been pretty smooth, working with Carren Downs at Casa Loma has been extremely informative and has made this process much easier. The web-based system used to track, log-in and evaluate the students is very easy to use, even for those who are not the best with computers or the web. Though I have limited experience with Casa Loma, so far everything has gone down as planned and the student on-site at our facility is friendly and appears to be knowledgeable in his field. To any Physical Therapy clinics out there who are on the fence about signing up with Casa Loma to allow clinical rotations, DONT HESITATE! They are very friendly and will help you at every turn with any questions you may have.
