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.
