History of Career Colleges of America:
The Mission of Career Colleges of America is:
To provide quality and valued-training programs and services to our students in order for them to obtain the skills and competencies needed for entry-level positions in their chosen fields; to locate employment opportunities for our graduates; and to promote an environment for employees and students, which fosters teamwork, personal growth, and respect for the individual.
Career Colleges of America was established in 1988 to provide entry-level training in various career opportunities. The school was purchased in 1991 and its name was changed to Career Colleges of America (CCA), with ongoing improvement to its program offerings and facilities. Innovative and experienced instructors contribute their expertise in expanding the services and training programs offered by CCA. Additional vocational programs have since been implemented in order to satisfy the increasing demands of the industry. Based on similar needs in Riverside, San Bernardino, and Los Angeles counties of Southern California, Career Colleges of America opened its San Bernardino campus in 1994 and Los Angeles campus in 2003. In June 2011, CCA opened an auxiliary classroom in Gardena to serve enrollment overflow from South Gate.
On December 14, 1999 Career Colleges of America received full accreditation from the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET). Career Colleges of America is a “dba” name of CCA Educorp, Inc., and does not have a pending petition in bankruptcy nor is it operating as a debtor in possession. Further, CCA has neither filed a petition nor had a petition in bankruptcy filed against it within the previous five years.
