Meet the Owner

Brooks Alternative Technical School is owned and operated since 2005 by a family that cares about the direction of healthcare. Mrs. Brooks envisioned BA Tech School not only as an institution dedicated to providing area long-term care facilities with well-trained nurses, home health aides and nursing assistants, but other allied health career professionals. She also envisioned BA Tech as a career school dedicated to providing our students with personal and professional growth. By providing high quality curricula and qualified instructors, small class sizes and more individualized attention, we feel that we enable our students to reach their career goals. Our motto is “Changing Lives, One Student at a Time”. By providing quality education in favorable learning environment, our graduates are able to pursue their career objectives and enhance their lives. If you want a school that is personable, that has an open door policy we are "The Alternative"
