WE CARE Approach
East Ohio is dedicated to the success of every student. Our WE CARE approach stands for work ethic, excellence, caring, accountability, relationships, and exemplary. Our goal is to see our students perform at their highest level and succeed academically, professionally, and personally. Our purpose is to empower change by creating opportunities for our students and inspiring them each day.
As part of our efforts, we help students overcome obstacles that may be preventing them from achieving success. Using our industry knowledge and resources, we can help students overcome obstacles and stay grounded. If a student’s car breaks down, we can assist them by providing them with a bus pass so they can still attend class.
When necessary, our school connects students to outside resources, such as mental health services offered by Morgantown Counseling. External resources can also include referrals to students that require assistance with purchasing a computer, assisting students with scholarship opportunities, and getting help with application fees. Additionally, we work with students on childcare concerns by providing flexible scheduling, enrollment verification, and other services so students can enroll their child in a daycare center.
The relationships we establish with students are an integral part of what we do as a school. We care about every student’s success, and we are here to assist you whenever you need it. Students are treated as members of our family, and we offer personal support throughout your learning journey.
As a result, we maintain an open-door policy with all of our students, which means you can get in touch with us at any time, and we will assist you. Should you encounter any difficulties during your enrollment process, we will help you resolve them. If you have difficulty in one of your courses, we will work together to determine the support you need to succeed. If you are having difficulty in one of your courses, we will work together to figure out the support you need.
By offering one-on-one assistance, we can get to know each student’s needs and provide the best possible support. As an example, when a medical assisting student is interested in dermatology, we assist that student in getting an externship with a dermatologist’s office. Our students’ goals are always different, so we work with them on a one-to-one basis to help them reach their goals.
Student Success Team
At East Ohio, you will be supported by an entire student success team dedicated to your success as you complete your career training. Whether it is admissions, academics, or career services, you will have your own personal champions to help you with any questions or concerns you might have. You can contact us by phone, text, or in person.
When you arrive at the East Ohio campus, our admissions team will guide you through the enrollment process, explore your options, and even make sure you are prepared for your initial classes. Your admissions team member will set you up for a financial aid consultation and stay in touch with you for six weeks to ensure everything is going smoothly.
After you begin your training program, our dedicated academic team will help set you up for success. We have an open-door policy that enables students to obtain the help they need from their instructors, including free tutoring. In addition, we know that each student has a unique learning style, so our instructors offer a variety of methods to help each student learn most effectively.
The career services team helps you prepare for career opportunities during your program and after graduation. Our career services help you develop resumes, send thank-you letters, prepare for interviews, reach out to employers on your behalf, and search for jobs. After graduating, students can still come back and get help in finding employment.
