History 1940-2004[edit]

Bryan College was established in 1940 by Dr. Mildred T. Bryan, a visionary who dedicated her career to advancing the court reporting industry by training qualified stenographers to be the best they could be. Dr. Bryan welcomed her first three students into her living room, which served as the initial classroom for the institution, originally named Bryan Stenotype School. Over time, with a committed focus on student- and employer-driven principles of excellence, Dr. Bryan succeeded in creating a strong brand image in the legal industry, such that the institution became the number-one choice for students and employers alike, receiving the highest certification pass rates and generating the most notable success stories in the field.

History 2005-2011[edit]

In 2005,under the company Alta Education, LLC, Bryan extended its reach by opening a campus in Sacramento, CA, furthering its mission to challenge the boundaries of traditional education. With this new campus, Bryan College introduced additional degree programs to support its brand, maintain its legacy, and continue to support its core student- and employer-focused values. These new programs aligned well with Bryan’s mission to provide students with marketable skills that resulted in employment.
