College America-Flagstaff says
Flagstaff, Arizona is home to the San Francisco Mountains, which are crowned by the Humphrey Peak that towers at 12,670 feet, creating an island of Ponderosa forest in the midst of the desert of the high Coconino plateau. The Flagstaff area provides year-round outdoor recreation, including hiking, mountain biking, camping, fishing, and hunting. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon, sits only 80 miles northwest and brings people from all over the world. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, it is no wonder that people of all ages and cultures have made a home in Flagstaff.
Flagstaff provides a well-educated workforce: over 45 percent of the 55,000 residents have a college degree. The Greater Flagstaff Economic Council is developing a strong technical base to attract enterprises to the area, with its technically skilled and educated workforce. This expanding job market often includes jobs in the medical, business, technology, and tourism fields.
Established in 2002, the CollegeAmerica Flagstaff campus is located on the north side of town on Route 66 and Steves Boulevard. The campus offers a medical lab, computer lab, many large classrooms, a library, a student lounge, a school-wide wireless network, and up-to-date learning support equipment.
We invite you to visit our campus and experience the professional and helpful atmosphere. Our knowledgeable staff of advisors will guide you through the campus, answer any questions you may have, and explain the services we offer, such as employment assistance, financial aid assistance for those who qualify, and more. We look forward to doing everything we can to help you meet your career goals through earning the degree that's right for you. CollegeAmerica was established in 1964 and acquired a location in Flagstaff in 2001. The College was formerly known as Northern Arizona College of Health Careers.
CollegeAmerica established a campus in Phoenix in 2004.
In the mid-1960's, Control Data Corporation began a school to train its employees for the then infant computer field. The school was named Control Data Institute. Courses in computer maintenance and repair and in computer programming were offered. As the computer industry grew, courses in computer applications were added. Before long, the school began offering its services to the community by opening its doors to nonemployees seeking computer training. Soon after, new schools were opened across the United States and Canada.
In 1989, Control Data Institute was sold to Human Capital Corporation and was renamed Career Development Institute (CDI). The new owners, former employees of Control Data, worked to upgrade and modernize the curriculum of the schools. In early 1993, CollegeAmerica purchased the Denver school and made a commitment to continue to offer the superior computer training developed over the years. In addition, courses in Computerized Accounting, Business Management, and Computer Technology were added to the curriculum, providing even greater career opportunities for our students. The school was renamed CollegeAmerica Denver.
In 1994, CollegeAmerica relocated to a new facility at 1385 South Colorado Boulevard to provide for growth and expansion. In 1995, CollegeAmerica continued its expansion plans to meet the growing enrollment. In 1997, the school acquired the entire 5th floor of our 7-story high-rise, more than doubling the original space.
