Charter College Launches Fife Campus with Blended Curriculum

Charter College has launched a new campus in Fife, Washington. The campus began enrolling students March 25, with a Blended Learning model that combines a hands-on classroom experience with online education. Charter College Fife offers programs in healthcare and business with an innovative blended learning curriculum.

With Charter College Blended Learning, students do not come to campus every day, saving daily travel time and expenses and providing the flexibility to work and manage family life while attending school. The rest of their studies are completed online anywhere, anytime.

The blended learning model has been proven to be the most effective way for students to learn. A U.S. Department of Education study found that students who had a blended curriculum performed better than students in traditional settings.1

The Fife, Washington, campus is offering three on-campus certificate programs in medical assistant, dental assisting and pharmacy technician. These programs were selected because they are growing fields in Washington State that are generating demand for well-trained, new employees.2

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, in Washington State over the next five years, the need for dental assistants is expected to grow by over 25% and for medical assistants by over 27%. The need for paralegals will grow by over 18% and demand for detectives and investigators will exceed 21%.2 By providing practical, hands-on career training in these fields, Charter College is preparing students for the high-demand jobs of today and tomorrow.
 

Charter College is a private, independent institution of higher education, providing students with a career-focused education in growing job fields that include health care, business, information technology, criminal justice, the legal field, and select trades. Not all programs are available at all campuses. Charter College operates college campuses in Fife, Lacey, Yakima, Vancouver, Pasco, and East Wenatchee, Washington, as well as in Alaska and California, and online.
