Placement Rate


Robert Paul Academy High Standards

Robert Paul Academy maintains the highest standards for quality education. In addition to being licensed we also maintain NACCAS (National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences) accreditation. This means that we uphold our reputation for excelling at educational performance and maintaining the quality of your education.


Placement Rate Methodology

The placement rate is based on graduates from the NACCAS graduation cohort (student scheduled to graduate from the program in 2015) who are employed in a field for which their training prepared them prior to November 30, 2016. Students would be considered ineligible if the graduate:

  • Is deceased
  • Is permanently disabled
  • Deployed for military service/duty
  • Studied under a student visa and is ineligible for employment in the United States
  • Continued his/her education at an institution under the same ownership

The placement rate is calculated by dividing the number of graduates who were employed in the field by the number of graduates who were eligible for employment and multiplying it by 100. This number is the NACCAS placement rate.

State Rate Methodology

State of Maryland

The placement rate is based on graduates from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016 that are employed by September 30, 2016. There are no exclusions to the placement cohort. The placement rate is calculated by dividing the total number of graduates by the number of graduates who were employed and multiplying it by 100. This number is the Maryland state placement rate.
