Remington College: A History in Higher Education
By way of introduction, Remington College is a name used by all 20 campuses of a group of affiliated companies that operate privately owned, post-secondary educational institutions. The College and its predecessor companies have a rich and substantive history, as some of our institutions have been in operation since the 1940s.
Beginning in 1985, all institutions have operated under the ownership of Education America, Inc., later known as Remington College. And from the founding of Lafayette’s Spencer Business College in 1940 and Tampa Technical Institute in 1948 – both later acquired by Education America/Remington College – through the March 2009 debut of the College’s newest campus in Columbia (SC) and the rollout of its most recent online offerings in June 2009, right to the present day and beyond, one important mission has endured:
To contribute to the public good by providing relevant, career-focused education designed and intended to help students acquire the knowledge and develop the skills and abilities necessary for successful entry into their chosen career fields.
Remington College believes that a well-educated workforce contributes to the economic and social vibrancy of the diverse communities in which its students, faculty, and staff live. To accomplish its mission, Remington College is committed to providing a caring learning environment in which a technically rich, intellectually stimulating, quality education is delivered by a dedicated faculty and staff.
Today, Remington College continues to grow. It is headquartered in Heathrow, Florida, and has one or more campus locations in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Louisiana, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. Currently, the College’s 20 campus locations offer degree and diploma programs, which vary by campus, in career fields including business, information technology, criminal justice, electronics, graphic arts, beauty and fitness, and the health sciences. Each of our prospective students is assisted by an Admissions Representative and a Student Finance Representative throughout the enrollment process.* Each campus also offers placement assistance to help students in their effort to secure suitable employment once they complete their program of study.**
The vision of Remington College is to operate at all times in accordance with the highest ethical standards while continually striving to improve the quality of education, services, and value provided to our students, employers, and the community, and to provide security to our employees and their families by ensuring the long-term viability of our campuses.
Remington College’s experience in the field of higher education spans decades of dedicated service, caring support, careful nurturing, active involvement, continued growth, and significant achievement. The College’s senior management team, shareholders, and investors, along with its Campus managers, instructors, staff members, and employees across all locations, join in celebrating 25 years in the field of post-secondary education. We look forward to continuing our tradition of success as we strive for ongoing excellence in all aspects of education, for the benefit of our students, their employers, our employees and their families, and the local communities in which we operate.
