A short history of Charter College
Charter College in Anchorage, Alaska, opened its doors in 1985 as the first Charter College campus offering a high quality career education. The concept was to bring a unique style of higher education to the Anchorage community–a way to advance careers and expand opportunities without trapping students in a four-year program where they were required to study subjects that were not relevant to their career field. Ten years earlier, the Canyon Country, California campus had opened under a different name, but because of common leadership and mission, adopted the Charter College name.
Today, Charter College has eleven on ground campuses in Alaska, Washington and California. We offer 30 different career-focused programs in a variety of fast-growing sectors. You’ll find master degree, bachelor degree, associate degree and certificate programs in health care, business, information technology, the legal field, and select vocational programs. All programs are carefully developed to provide career growth and employment opportunity.
We are very proud of the success of our students and we believe their success is a result of the unique educational structure at Charter College, our exceptionally committed instructors and administrators, and the incredible resources we provide to every student.
