4.09 Average Rating
Its a small, but beautiful campus. The staff and seniors make you feel so comfortable. Its just a big loving and caring family.
Jazlynn from Monroeton, PA
This is a great, small, private school. There are small, concentrated classes for the one on one teaching experience. Everyone at Wilkes acts like a big family including faculty.
