HILLSBORO, Oregon — Hillsboro Aviation has been designated a 2015 Military Friendly School by Victory Media.
Now in its sixth year, the Military Friendly Schools designation is awarded to the top 15% of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students and to dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation.
“Being named to this prestigious list is an honor, and we are very proud to assist veterans in finding fulfilling, rewarding and exciting careers as professional pilots,” said Hillsboro Aviation’s School Director Chris Berg.
The survey captures more than 50 leading practices in supporting military students at the more than 8,000 schools approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding. As in past years, the 2015 Military Friendly Schools results were independently tested by Ernst & Young based upon the weightings and methodology developed by Victory Media with input by its independent Academic Advisory Board.
