Admission Stages

  • To apply for admission to the Successful Aging Career Institute, the applicant should make an appointment to speak with the Admissions Program Specialist. The applicant should bring 2 forms of I.D., one of which should be a state issued photo I.D & social security card. During the admission process the prospective student should allow for (2hr) time to take the entry exam T.A.B.E. Test of Adult Basic Education, Section 1 (Reading) and Section 2 (Mathematics) and correctly answer at least 15 out of 25 questions on both Section 1 and Section 2 to successfully pass the exam. A $50 deposit is required prior to testing and will be applied towards your tuition.

  • All students must provide the school with a Physical Exam/Health Form completed by a physician; the physical must include a recent (within 1yr) tuberculosis skin test (2-step PPD) and must state that the applicant can lift 40 lbs. If a student test positive for the PPD test then a Chest X-ray will be required.

  • All applicants for the Nursing Assistant Program must be able to request a criminal background check for the schools review of prohibitive offences (not all offences will disqualify student). If a student has not lived in the state of Pennsylvania for 2 years than a FBI fingerprint check is also required.

  • All applicants must be at least 17 years of age. The school requires a parent or guardian’s signature on the enrollment agreement for students less than 18 years of age.

Each student will be interviewed by the Admission Program Specialist prior to completing the enrollment process and a brief tour will be provided. SACI wants to enroll students with good common sense who have the motivation to be successful in the Nurse Aide Training course they decide to prepare for.
