ALUMNI


"Key College is by far the BEST course of study in the court reporting field locally. I was not able to graduate from Key College (which I regret daily) and had to transfer to another school for financial reasons during my last speed. Key College holds their students accountable and respects the curriculum. I never once saw a student on their phone while a test was taken place. Whereas, students at the other school would have open conversation’s in the middle of class. The instruction that I received from Key College far surpasses what I received from the “other” school. I am now a great reporter and have a great business going for me, and everything that I learned about court reporting is strictly from the guidance and support from Key College. The other school doesn’t even speak about national certifications or software issues, which are integral parts of our profession. Key College not only gave you a specific software class where you learn hands-on instruction, but they get you prepared for the RPR. I only wish I could have stayed at Key College longer."

Julie Giordano-Sork – Court Reporting Alumnus

"Key College was an amazing experience! It taught me all I needed to know about court reporting and how to be prepared for the field. It’s a tough school, but that’s what you want in a course like this. The teachers are great, the courses are thorough. It was just a good experience all around and I am happy I chose this school. Now, I am out and successful and I have them to thank for it!"

Christina Gaunt – Court Reporting Graduate

"Returning to school in my fifties was not an easy decision. I had over seven years invested in a fine arts degree with many incomplete credits and a 25-year cosmetology teaching career that could no longer support my goals. I was abandoned by my husband, I was scared. I needed help, and thank God I had earned V. A. benefits. Selecting a College that was V.A. Approved was easier when I selected the program that I wanted. Key College offered a “sweet” Paralegal Program that allowed me to work and study for two of the hardest and best years of my life. I wish to thank the Dooleys for their guidance, support, encouragement and confidence. I had never attended a private college, but I wanted a campus environment rather than online. Through my studies, I formed what I believe to be lifelong friendships with fellow students and faculty. The teachers were great and provided me with an outstanding education. Without question, I would recommend Key College for the “top-notch” programs of study in Paralegal Studies, Court Reporting and Medical Assisting. I want to thank all the faculty and administration for one of the best campus experiences one can hope to have. Thank you!"

Linda Langdon – Paralegal Studies Graduate

"I wanted to thank you for many more things that you are not aware of. I feel that where I am today would not have been possible if it was not for my education and experience at Key College. I went to Key College being unsure of what I was getting into. I realize today that my foundation started at Key College. Let me explain… at that time in my life, I was a single mom, clueless of what I wanted out of my life. The only thing I knew was that I wanted to be a good example for my son and to better myself and for my son’s future. I began Key College fragile, fearful, and powerless. I came out fearless, powerful and fired up. As I pursued my paralegal studies, I felt I was on the right path. The education I acquired from my instructors was outstanding. I still stay in touch to this day. As I pursued my paralegal degree, I used to say, “Why do we have to take courses that have nothing to do with our career”? I just got a reality check! I use to say “I hate public speaking.” Now I actually do public speaking for a large corporation so that I can do what I do. I am now a spokesperson for the homeless shelter. I speak on how individuals can make their dreams come true. I continued my education after Key College and now hold a Bachelor of Science Degree. I am still working as a paralegal but I am also a business development rep for ACN. I am involved in charitable organizations such as Ronald McDonald’s and Will Play Food Foundations. I love the work that I do. Mr. Dooley, if there is anything that I can do to help you or the faculty and staff at Key College, please let me know. I would not be here if it were not for Key College. I want to be an inspiration to others on how they can accomplish greatness if you believe in yourself.

Evelyn Costillo – Paralegal Graduate

EMPLOYERS

Donald Anderson, Attorney at Law

"In all my thirty-eight years supervising and hiring court reporters, we have never hired a graduate right out of college for an official-ship position until we hired one of Key College's graduates. She was hired against a field of twenty that had several years’ experience, but she knew more about the profession than any of the others and we hired her."

Mrs. Mahoney/Superior Court, Washington, DC.

"Brittany is a true asset to our company."

Christa Merolus, Supervisor/Quick Clinic Medical Center
