Council people attend as the school unveils its new classrooms and labs
The Cherry Hill campus held a ribbon-cutting ceremony this July to unveil its improved suite of classrooms and laboratories. Councilman Jim Bannar and Councilwoman usan Shin Angulo attended the event, and were treated to a tour of the facilities.
“The renovated space looks fresh and updated, and it is perfect timing as our school is growing to accommodate more students,” says Melanie Gaskins, Campus Director of the Cherry Hill campus. Located in the One Cherry Hill building near the Cherry Hill Mall, the campus currently has an enrollment of approximately 260 students. The programs offered at this site include Professional Medical Assistant training, Legal Office Technology, Medical Billing and Coding training, and a Computerized Accounting Technology program.
“Our programming is expanding starting in August,” Gaskins continues. “We will be offering a Massage Therapy program, and in addition, we are looking forward to adding Electronic Health Records (EHR) training to some of our current programs.” To accommodate the growth in programming and enrollment, the school plans to renovate additional space in the current building to create more classrooms and administrative offices.
Like the other seven campuses of the Harris School, the Cherry Hill campus is equipped with specialized classrooms for career training, a library, study rooms, and administrative offices, including admissions, financial aid, and Career Services. Cherry Hill offers both daytime and evening classes to help meet the diverse needs of its students. It is conveniently located within the Cherry Hill Mall complex, allowing students easy access to the major highways in southern New Jersey. With the recent renovation, the Harris School is proud to be able to offer an updated learning environment for its students.
