When I was thinking about starting my schooling at Sprott Shaw College I wasn’t 100% set on what course I wanted to do and Samantha Gadon who is one of the admissions advisors helped me figure out what I wanted to do between a couple options. She was very helpful whenever I had any questions.

I am writing to express my gratitude and share what I have experience at this campus. I have just completed Mental Health and Addiction course and I must say my instructor Ms. Shirley Phillips is the BEST.She is a knowlegable, understanding, caring, helpful individual that knows how to teach students especally mature ones.With our busy lives sometimes we fall behind but she allow us to use some of our class time to catch up on our work. Not everyone have the grace to teach mature students but she does.She wants what is best for her students and she believe in them.Knowing that you have a teacher that believe in you and shows empathy is more than money can buy. I thank God for her, I will be forever grateful...Blessings on all the staff and students.One Love!

Abbortsford location is very convenient for me . It’s just beside the bus stop. As a new driver I feel scared of driving to another city. It really saved me. The staffs are all friendly and helpful especially Catelynn who always answered my emails on time and was very patient when I asked too many questions and she helped me a lot before I decided to take this program. I am also very happy to have made many friends here.

Samantha is so easy to work with and answers all your questions almost before you ask them. She is caring and so helpful and I was very lucky to have her help through the process of going back to school after so many years. Natasha (Campus Director) is very in touch with all the students in the school and knows them all by name. Chad our instructor is an awesome teacher with first hand experience of being an Education Assistant so that is so helpful. Chad is also a great teacher and I am so grateful that I have him as a teacher. I highly recommend this course and school!
