    The quality of education for the price paid per class is absolutely worth it, the instructors are very much concerned for the success of each student in their class, and are for the most part very willing to help with material when asked. Lectures and labs require just as much dedication toward studying and coursework as any other college/university-level course, and have just as much to offer in terms of the material given. Overall, a very good value for what is paid in tuition costs.

    Lord Fairfax offers a decent amount of services for its students. It has free tutoring, teachers available during office hours, and a place for students simply to ask questions who don't want either extreme. It has a decently sized library with plenty of reading material. Credit hours are much cheaper than at a 4-year college. There are plenty of freshman level courses available for the taking, but slots for sophomore level classes are fairly limited. Most of the teachers are friendly and very personable but not everyone. Compared to high school, there is a much more relaxed atmosphere. It also has a great bookstore available for students' needs.
