Located in Columbus, OH, Bradford School was originally founded in 1911. Today, classes are taught through hands-on learning techniques by industry-experienced teachers who know what skills employers want. Our smaller class sizes make it easy for students to feel connected to their instructors and to get the personal attention they deserve.
