Prospective Students

We, at the DARUBY School, encourage prospective students to visit our training facility and observe classes while the classes are in session.  We also invite prospective students to compare our programs,  the quality of our training programs, and the atmosphere we provide in order for them to compare us with other schools they may have under consideration.

 

Admission Requirements

 

To be eligible for admission to full-time programs, except for the CNA program, an applicant must have graduated from an accredited or private high school or have earned a certification of equivalency (GED).  A copy of the accepted student's high school transcript or GED certificate must be filed with the school.  Applicants for the CNA program may be eligible if they score 8th grade in reading and 7th grade in math even though they may not have a high school diploma or GED.

 

The high school transcript or equivalency certificate is not required for students who have earned at least an associate degree and whose official college transcript indicates high school graduation.

Enrollment Procedures

Applicants must make an appointment for a personal interview with a staff member of the DARUBY school and tour the school.  TABE qualification tests are given by the referring agency.  An applicant, when accepted by the DARUBY School, is then referred to the appropriate agency and the agency will determine if the student qualifies for training funds from the agency.  Qualities considered in assessing an applicant of enrollment are interest and aptitude for the program subjects, motivation, personal qualifications necessary for successful completion of the chosen courses of study, and the favorable employment potential of the applicant following graduation. 

 

No fee is required for initial application testing and interview screening. Applicants accepted for admission are notified and a mutually acceptable start date is established.
