Ashmead College is the former name of a system of for-profit colleges located in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States and owned by Corinthian Colleges.

History[edit]

The school was founded in 1974 as the Seattle Massage School. In 1999 the school began operating under the Ashmead College name.[1] In August 2003, Corinthian Colleges, Inc. purchased Career Choices, Inc., the owner of Ashmead College, as a wholly owned subsidiary.[2] In February 2007, the Everett campus closed and was consolidated with the Seattle location.[3] The remaining campuses changed their names to either Everest Institute or Everest College in December 2007.

Campuses[edit]

Campuses were located in Washington in the cities of Everett, Seattle, Tacoma, and Vancouver, and in Tigard, Oregon. They offered career college programs in fitness training and massage therapy.
