About Delta Career Education

Delta was founded in February 1998 by its then CEO, Joseph A. Kennedy. His more than 25 years of experience in private career college ownership and management includes managing multi-campus operations, developing and executing strategic plans, attracting and developing high-energy results-oriented management teams, and opening branch operations. He has presented extensively within the career college field as a recognized leader of quality institutions. Delta's first acquisition, in February 1998, was Miller-Motte Business College, with campuses in Clarksville, Tennessee, Wilmington, North Carolina, and Lynchburg, Virginia. Following this initial acquisition, Delta purchased Career Training Specialists in Monroe, Louisiana. In September 2000, in response to the increased concentration in technical program offerings, both Miller-Motte Business Colleges and Career Training Specialists changed their names to Miller-Motte Technical College and Career Technical College, respectively. In December of that year, Miller-Motte launched a new branch campus in Charleston, South Carolina. With the influx of this new capital investment, in August of 2002 Delta acquired the McCann School of Business and Technology, a school that was founded in 1897 and operates campuses in Pottsville, Sunbury, Scranton, and Hazleton, Pennsylvania. The Mahanoy City branch of McCann moved to Hazleton in May 2005 in order to better serve the needs of students and employers both in Northern Schuylkill County and Southern Luzerne County (the Greater Hazleton Area). Continuing its expansion, in September of 2002, Delta purchased The Creative Circus, a premier graphic arts, advertising, and photography school located in Atlanta, Georgia, and opened a branch campus of Miller-Motte Technical College in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In November of 2003 Delta acquired Miami-Jacobs Career College, a school that was founded in the 1860s and operates in Dayton, Ohio. A second Miami-Jacobs location opened in Springboro, Ohio in July 2005, and a third location opened in Troy, Ohio in February 2007. Delta Education opened several additional branch locations in 2004 and 2005. Miller-Motte Technical College opened in Raleigh, North Carolina in October of 2004, Career Technical College in Shreveport, Louisiana opened in November 2004, and Miller-Motte Technical College in Nashville, Tennessee opened in May 2005. The Nashville school is Delta Education's first school to offer courses in Heating and Air Conditioning, Welding, and Electrician. In May of 2006, Delta was once again re-capitalized by Gryphon Investors, through Gryphon Colleges Corporation. Gryphon Investors is a $700 million San Francisco-based private equity fund that focuses on leveraged acquisitions of growth investments in middle market companies in partnership with experienced management teams that run them. Gryphon Colleges Corporation was formed at the end of 2004 by Gryphon Investors through the acquisition of National Career Education (NCE), a four campus school (Lamson College, National Career Education, Institute For Business & Technology, Tucson College) company located in Arizona and California. In June of 2007 Lamson Institute opened in San Antonio, Texas. On August 3rd, 2006 Delta acquired The Academy of Court Reporting (ACR), a school that was founded in the 1970s and operates in the following cities in Ohio: Cleveland, Akron, Columbus, Cincinnati, as well as in Clawson, Michigan and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Academy has trained and placed thousands of students in today's legal system. In March of 2008, Delta Acquired its 10th school brand, Berks Technical Institute(BTI) in Wyomissing, PA. BTI, located in southeastern Pennsylvania, was founded in 1982 and is home to over 700 students. The 8th Miller-Motte campus was opened in Raleigh, NC in July of 2008 followed by the Greenville, NC branch in March of 2009. Together Delta, NCE, and ACR include 31 campuses providing education to over 8,000 students.
