The education offered at vocational schools allows children and adults to focus on the skills to enter a particular industry, with the option of not taking unrelated general education courses required for an associate degree at a community college. Vocational schools also provide technology training or retraining for workers in their current occupations.

This was the best camp we enrolled my daughter in for this Summer (2017)! ... She had a lot of fun and enhanced more of her creative talent for drawing and illustrating. Todd, the director of Elite Animation and all his wonderful staff made her experience enjoyable and fun. She really thrived in learning more of what she loves to do! Thank you for such an awesome time and making a part of her Summer a fantastic learning experience. We'll definitely be back! :)read more

Mr. West and his staff are impeccable at their work, ethics & above all... EXTREMELY Knowledgeably professional with all avenues of animation. My son is High Functioning Autistic and fell in love with the school, staff, curriculum set before him. This will be my sons career and I can not express the love and attention that Mr. West and all the teachers take a vital & intimate roll in each students curriculum. The staff and director allowed me to work with them and share my sons needs and then set an outstanding portfolio/curriculum for him to excel. I can not thank The West's and the staff for the steady hand and compassionate heart they have for their craft and these students. The ratio is perfect, learning environment is superior. We're currently working online as we're 650 miles away. Except for winter and summer where we travel and relocate. However, because of this phenomenal school we're seriously working towards living in Orlando. My sincere thank you to the West's and staff of Elite Animation. A special thank you to Mr. Jason. You make Reid's world every Saturday. read more
