For over thirty years, we have provided career training to busy adults looking to further their education at a school that understands the need for flexible schedules. Through the years our name may have changed, but our commitment to our students and alumni has remained a top priority since the day we opened our doors.
Our History as an Education Provider in Pennsylvania
The Franklin Mills campus was founded in the Philadelphia area in 1981 as CHI Institute, with computer systems technology classes starting in the spring of 1982. In the following years, programs were added in response to local education needs and the CHI Institute achieved AST-degree granting status in 1985. In October 2007, the Franklin Mills campus relocated from Southampton, Pennsylvania, to its current location in Northeastern Philadelphia to better serve its students. In January 2012, CHI Institute changed its name to Kaplan Career Institute.
Our Present at Franklin Mills in Northeast Philadelphia
Our teams at Kaplan Career Institute, from admissions to academics to career services, are focused on finding ways to support our students, both professionally and personally. We want to make sure you feel confident in your choice. That is why we offer the Kaplan Commitment, which gives students the opportunity to attend real classes for an introductory period without having a financial obligation beyond an enrollment fee.
Outside of the classroom, we promote a rich student life and help our students create a community. In past months, we have celebrated the academic achievements and perfect attendance of our students with public recognition and certificates, while enjoying music and refreshments. In-class work is supplemented with opportunities to go on field trips and hear from guest speakers, including employers, graduates, and motivational speakers. Students may also have a chance to give back to their own community through Service Learning Projects.
