    School Notes

    • Camelot College was founded by Ronnie L. Williams on May 1, 1986 out of his sincere desire to provide education and career skill training to unemployed and underemployed people in the business and medical industries. Camelot College's first classes began on May 12, 1986 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at 2618 Wooddale Boulevard, through a classroom training contract with the Job Training Partnership Administration. They were licensed by the Louisiana State Department of Education on August 28, 1986. We are presently providing short-term job-specific training in Medical Assistant, Computer Data Processing, Cosmetology and Paralegal Studies. Camelot college has been a pioneer over the past fifteen years in assisting students to become qualified for career jobs in only ten months. Thousands of graduates from Camelot College are now employed and living successful lives because they made the decision to attend Camelot College. The college is nationally accredited as a business school by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools.
