LAST UPDATED: June 27th, 2019
Apex Technical School has serviced New Yorkers since 1961, and they are licensed by the New York State Education Department. The school's founders were engineers who developed a trade school to offer hands-on, quality education. With this in mind, Apex's programs are made in a way to balance both the industry theories as well as give hands-on instruction. Apex celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2011 and a year later they moved their location to Long Island City, Queens.

The Good

  • Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance

Apex Technical School is very good about being transparent with their pricing and other financial aspects. An average full-time student can expect to pay about $18,000 over the time of their program. We don't compare prices from college to college because the costs are greatly affected by several different variables such as the number of credits a student takes or the amount of financial aid one will get. We do like to credit all the colleges who have numbers available so potential students can get a general idea of the cost. Schools that have cost details available will receive full points whereas colleges that don't have information on costs of attendance and financial assistance will not receive any points. With Apex the school and programs qualify for financial aid which gives all students the ability to get assistance. Not only this, but the school offers federal work-study programs which individual schools have to apply for as it is another type of federal aid. The work-study programs get awarded based on the school's earnings, graduation rates, retention, and more. Having both of these options available gives students a great opportunity to cut their school expenses tremendously.

The Bad

  • Number of Programs
  • Undisclosed Information

Number of Programs

Apex Technical School currently has seven different programs that they offer. This includes auto repair, air conditioning and refrigeration, auto body repair, welding, electrical, construction, and plumbing. We give companies who offer more programs and possible degrees more points. Apex falls just short on the list when comparing to other trade colleges. An average we commonly see is at least 10. Hopefully over time Apex Technical School will look into expanding their programs and specialties even more.

Undisclosed Information

Apex has a handful of categories where we could not find information. For example, we couldn't get details on a graduation rate, job placement rates and services, and cohort default rates. We believe all of these to be important information when researching different trade colleges. Not being able to find answers online might deter someone from coming back to Apex as an option. With this many pieces of missing information, it takes a toll on the Overall Score of the college.

The Bottom Line

Apex Technical School is not in the best position to recommend right now. They have a lot of crucial missing details that could greatly alter a potential student's feeling about the school. However, we did like that they were transparent in the financial aspect as people could argue this is the most important factor when considering a trade college. With the lack of information and few number of programs offered we do not believe Apex would be the best option for students. New Yorkers should continue to do research for other trade schools before settling with Apex Technical School.
