University description (as per official university website)
Robert Sanz founded Sanz School in 1939 as a foreign language school. Initially, the school's chief activity was helping to prepare employees of government agencies to work in foreign countries.
In the 1950s, the instruction of international students in English became the primary focus of the school. The Sanz ESL (English as a Second Language) program, grounded in a sixty-eight year tradition, is recognized as a program of excellence.
In 1981, Sanz School introduced courses in typewriting and word processing and expanded the course offerings to business and computer applications. In 1988, the school sought and obtained accreditation by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education Training (ACCET).
In 1989, the school entered into a participation agreement with the US Department of Education in order to offer financial aid to eligible students.
In 1998, in response to the Health Care industry's increased demand for trained, professional assistants, in both the clinical and office areas, Sanz developed Medical Assisting and Medical Office Administration programs. In 2001 Sanz initiated a Medical Billing and Coding Specialist program, focusing on the areas of insurance and coding, medical billing, and claims processing.
In 1999, Sanz opened its branch campus in Falls Church, Virginia. The Silver Spring, Maryland campus followed in 2000. Sanz relocated its “Main Campus” distinction to the Virginia site in 2006.
2007 saw the Washington, DC campus seek and receive approval to offer Associate-level Degree programs and is proud to now hold the prominent distinction of Sanz “College”.
