There is NO typical student for a funeral service and embalming institute like ours, and that's what is so great about it! Everyone is so different, from their backgrounds to ages to career goals, everyone here makes quite the quirky family. Yes, family! With small intimate classes that you experience throughout your entire enrollment, you get to really know who you are sharing classes with. This is also an ideal setup for networking! Because we are so diverse and going into this type of service industry, there is a great deal of tolerance and light-heartedness throughout the student body.

Not the most aesthetically appealing space, but definitely study-friendly. We are a very small school that specializes in funeral directing and embalming and it shows very well in our embalming lab and restorative arts space. We also house a national funeral museum! However some of the technology could be updated a bit.

As any college student will tell you, tuition in the U.S. is higher than ever! But for our program, tuition is relatively low. Compared to other schools, we will go into a decent paying work force with relatively low amounts of student debt.
