Zenith Education Closing All but Three College Campuses

21 Campuses Being Phased Out
November 9, 2017
Zenith Education Group, which this past summer converted from a for-profit to a nonprofit career education provider, is planning to close 21 of its 24 remaining college campuses.

Zenith plans to cease enrolling new students at the affected Altierus Career College and WyoTech campuses, affecting 5,400 students across the company's physical and online campuses. The closings will occur over time as Zenith will continue to "teach out" enrolled students.

Santa Ana, CA-based Zenith plans to reach out to other local educational institutions, nonprofit organizations and community groups to gauge interest in its existing facilities that are being closed.

This change comes nearly three years after ECMC Group formed Zenith to acquire 56 Corinthian Colleges Inc. campuses facing closure.

"Over the past few years, it has become evident to us that many of our campuses are located in areas that are geographically inconvenient for underserved students, or not built to accommodate the programs that we want and need to offer," Zenith said in a prepared statement. "We intend to use those learnings in a more focused three-campus approach to enhance initiatives."

Zenith will continue to operate its Altierus Career Colleges in Tampa, Norcross, GA and the Bissonnet campus in Houston.

ECMC Foundation will continue to provide support to the three campuses through grant dollars.
