About Charter College
Charter College is a private, independent institution of higher education that follows a dramatically new direction. Charter is neither a liberal arts college, a university, nor a vocational school. Instead, Charter College borrows certain elements from each of those respected educational institutions to create a unique and innovative experience for our students.
We offer career-focused education in the growing fields of Health Care, Business, Criminal Justice and Information Technology and strive to provide our students, both young and old, with an education that’s both relevant in today’s workspace and cutting-edge in technology and focus.
