Student Testimonial

"Empire, for me, is more than a school. It’s home. It’s where at 37 years old, I found myself. I’ve learned that I’m capable, I’ve for the first time in my life found confidence and pride. This is due to the amazing staff who believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. I want to again thank all of you, and Mr. Norman for making dreams come true."
