When I attended Edgewood College, it was the first time I felt like a school really knew and cared about me. Their focus is clearly on the students, and the staff (teachers and program administrators alike) are simply amazing. I highly recommend Edgewood College to everyone I know. The ESL program far exceeded my expectations. I learned so much current, relevant and valuable information, and I use it every day in my classroom.
