Academics

Students

The Maryland Heights location of Anthem is a local commuter college, so students will typically live on their own nearby and commute since student housing is not available. However, students do have the option of taking some classes online to earn degrees in the healthcare field, which is convenient for those who may live further away. Students can also participate in career services, the externship placement program, tutoring if help is needed to pass a class, and fun activities sponsored by the campus to get to know each other outside of the classroom setting.

Student Enrollment Demographics

The programs offered are accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES).
