Your Path to a Better Life

CollegeAmerica’s legacy of student success

CollegeAmerica was established in Arizona in 1964 and acquired a location in Flagstaff in 2001. The College was formerly known as Northern Arizona College of Health Careers. A campus was established in Phoenix in 2004 due to demand for programs in the region.


In early 1993 in Colorado, CollegeAmerica purchased the Career Development Institute (CDI) and made a commitment to continue to offer the superior computer training developed over the years. In addition, courses in Computerized Accounting, Business Management, and Computer Technology were added to the curriculum, providing even greater career opportunities for our students. The school was renamed CollegeAmerica Denver. In June of 2001, a branch campus was opened in Fort Collins, Colorado. In October of 2002, a branch campus was opened and accredited in Colorado Springs, Colorado.


Today, CollegeAmerica is known for its high educational standards. Academic majors are designed specifically to meet the changing trends and requirements of the business and medical employment markets. Business, technical, and medical leaders have come to recognize CollegeAmerica graduates for their superior training and their outstanding professionalism.

“We’ve geared all of our degree programs really to be not only career-specific, but to be focused on that adult learner who’s coming back to school and needs additional support, needs focused curriculum, needs career-specific curriculum, rather than a lot of electives that may not really add any value to their future career.”

– Eric Juhlin
President of CollegeAmerica
