Choosing a college is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. At Spencerian College, we encourage you to explore many different types of colleges before making the ultimate decision.
Spencerian offers you some advantages you just won’t find at other schools.
Our Career First curriculum focuses on the specific knowledge and skills you’ll need to succeed in your chosen field.
For those students who qualify, we work hard to help you find the financial aid you need to make an education possible. Once you’re enrolled at Spencerian College, your tuition never increases as long as you remain continuously enrolled in the program you choose.
At Spencerian, we give you a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on, on-the-job training where you can put that knowledge into action. Our faculty includes instructors who have worked in real-world positions in the fields they teach and who can share a realistic view of the challenges and opportunities you’ll face.
Because we keep classes small, you get to know your classmates and instructors – and they get to know you. Smaller classes make it less intimidating to ask questions, and Spencerian faculty have a reputation for taking a personal interest in the success of every student. And we offer free tutoring for those times when you just need a little extra help with a tough class.
Depending on your course of study, you can move from the classroom to your career in six to 33 months. Our fast, 11-week quarters combined with a stair-step curricular progression of certificates, diplomas and associate degrees can help you stay on course and move quickly into a position in the field you choose. We also offer the flexibility to choose between day, evening and web-assisted classes to accommodate your busy schedule.
Every graduate from Spencerian College gets access to employment assistance at no charge. We help match your skills, interests and personality with available positions within your field of interest. And that assistance is available throughout your career. You can even review a class you’ve taken at a later date without charge, just to keep your skills and knowledge sharp.
Spencerian College was founded in 1892 by Enos Spencer, a nationally recognized business educator of his time. In the history book entitled Beginning of the Business School, author Charles G. Reigner states: “The name Spencerian has imbedded itself in the consciousness of the American people. The Name has been associated with business schools for almost a hundred years. It is an honored name.”
Over the years, Spencerian College has realigned its program offerings to meet the needs of the community’s workforce. In the early 1970s, Spencerian College offered its first allied health and nursing program. In 1992 the main campus moved from its downtown location to its current location on Dixie Highway. In 1997 Spencerian College opened its Lexington campus located in the heart of the Bluegrass Country. This location specialized in technology and computer programs and then began offering allied health programs in 2000 to meet the workforce demands of the Lexington community.
Today Spencerian College, both the main campus and the branch campus in Lexington, specializes 100% in offering healthcare programs. The college continues to adapt to employer needs in a continuous process of program and course evaluation.
Spencerian College is proud of its distinctive reputation earned through more than a century of service in education. The college is positioned to prepare its graduates to meet the employment needs of the present and the future.
