Everest University at North Orlando is a private-for-profit school with over 580 undergraduates. It was established in 1918, and is only a short distance away from Orlando’s trail of fantabulous theme parks. The university offers short courses, distance education and four-year degree opportunities. It is oriented towards hands-on practical experience; learning takes place both in its classrooms and in real world environments. Community service is also embedded in its curriculum; Everest students are a part of university-organised community events that involve the community in general as well as local high schools. The North Orlando campus of Everest University benefits students in search of a school with a flexible schedule and applied curriculum.
