Academics

Founded in 1994 as an information technology school, ATA switched focus and is now training future professionals in the allied health field. Within the two campuses, one in Largo and the other in Spring Hill, students are offered the following programs:

  • Dental Assistant
  • Limited Medical Radiography
  • Limited Medical Radiography with Medical Assisting
  • Medical Assistant
  • Medical Coding
  • Medical Office Assistant
  • Phlebotomy

Day and evening classes are available along with practical hands-on learning in campus classrooms and externships. Each program has its own requirements for lab hours and coursework but many programs can be completed in as little as 10 months, making this an ideal situation for people looking to start careers in the allied health field or for those looking to train for a new profession.

Most Popular Fields of Study

Admissions

The school has an open admissions policy, and they offer courses starting at the beginning of every month. Students who wish to enroll in a program must contact the recruiting office and arrange for a personal interview. All applicants must be 18 years or older and must have obtained a high school diploma or equivalent. Prospective students are encouraged to make an appointment with an admissions officer at least one week prior to enrollment. The school has a non-competitive admissions policy, allowing a qualified applicant to enroll so long as there is room. Applicants are advised to apply three weeks prior to enrollment in order for their financial aid packages to be approved.

Financial Aid

Counseling and assistance are offered for students applying for state and federal and even private financial aid programs. ATA offers a Gap Scholarship for students who are not eligible for outside financial assistance and the school offers an installment payment plan for students who need to finance their tuition along with providing special financing for those in the military.

This program helps with career placement by networking with the students in their chosen career paths, sending students to job fairs, and sitting down to provide one-on-one counseling for resume writing and interview skills.

Accreditation

This school is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) and by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES).
