College America-Cheyenne says
Located just 90 minutes north of Denver, Colorado, Cheyenne sits as the northern anchor city of the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Cheyenne is the capital of Wyoming and the cultural and political center for the northern plains.
With a diverse population of almost 59,000, Cheyenne has a multitude of cultural and recreational opportunities. The civic center hosts a theater season, numerous productions, and the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra. The downtown's renovated Union Pacific Depot houses offices, a restaurant, and a transportation museum. During the summer months, the Depot Plaza is the location for concerts, the farmer's market, pancake breakfasts, and more.
Cheyenne is also the home of the Cheyenne Frontier Days, the largest outdoor rodeo in the nation and the pride of most residents. The "daddy of 'em all" is an unforgettable experience that includes parades, pancake breakfasts, western art shows, native American arts and culture, night concerts, and, of course, the famous rodeo itself.
The city of Cheyenne itself is inextricably linked with the military. F. E. Warren Air Force Base serves as a training ground for the U.S. Air Force. Cheyenne welcomes and values the military personnel who so admirably serve our country and live side-by-side with Cheyenne residents, working together for the betterment of both the city and the base. 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.
