Ray Matlock: Ray Of Hope

Watch Ray's Inspiring Story Now

At Rockford Career College, we are all about helping our students become successful alumni. Our primary goal is to prepare our students to move into careers they will love, and in which they will succeed.

We have a powerful history of doing just that right here in Rockford, Illinois since 1862. Along the way, a lot of lives have been changed for the better and a lot of interesting stories have been created - none, perhaps, more compelling than Ray Matlock's.

Ray, as you will see, is quite an amazing person. His story is a fascinating mix of the bitter and sweet, of disappointment and joy, of hardship and triumph. It is 100% Ray's story and it is 100% unique. We at Rockford Career College are so very proud to have played a role in his inspiring success.

One thing is not unique, though: the way Ray was treated at Rockford Career College. Ours is a caring, nurturing environment in which all students are treated like family. Our career-focused, small class environment might be just what you need to take your life off pause and power forward into a better future.
