Charter College is a private, independent institution of higher education that emphasizes a new direction for continuing education. Charter College is not a liberal arts college, university, or a vocational school. Instead, Charter College takes the best elements from each of these respected educational institutions to create a unique and innovative experience that meets our students’ needs.
We offer career training programs in the growing fields of healthcare, business, legal, hospitality, veterinary care, information technology, and select trade careers. We strive to provide our students with a career-focused education that is relevant in today’s workspace and integrated with industry-specific technology, software and equipment.
A history of helping people advance their lives
Charter College started this mission in 1985. We saw a need for flexible degree programs dedicated to teaching passionate students valuable skills in a non-traditional environment that accommodated busy schedules, family needs and more.
In the years since we began, we have expanded to numerous locations throughout the West, as well as robust online offerings. We have been fortunate enough to grow with every student and witness their success first-hand.

We offer industry-current labs and facilities, experienced professors and a flexible class schedule. And all of this was designed with you in mind.
Blended Learning sets us apart
At Charter College, we believe in blended learning. Blended learning at Charter College means that your studies are split between in classroom work and online work, offering you more flexibility. We do this because we want students to get their degrees without too many time constraints. With the blended learning model, you save on commuting and travel expenses, while still being able to remain committed to every other priority in your life.
Not only does the blended learning structure respect your time, but it also has proven success. In a study conducted by the U.S. Department of Education it was concluded that students who learned under a blended learning curriculum performed better in professional, more traditional settings than students who did not.1
Our ultimate goal is to help you achieve your goals inside the classroom so that you can exceed your expectations in a fulfilling career.
