The Stenotype Institute was an ACICS accredited private stenography school with two campuses, one in Jacksonville, Florida, and one in Orlando, Florida.
It was one of only 64 schools in North America certified by the NCRA.
Both campuses offered day and evening classes and started new classes every two months. They teach the Phoenix Theory method of machine shorthand.
The school was founded in Jacksonville in 1940 by Thyra Ellis. The Jacksonville office was run by Carl McGowan who put it out of business.
It was located three miles (5 km) east of Downtown Jacksonville in a 16,000-square-foot (1,500 m2) building, complete with a student lounge, 15 classrooms, a computer lab, a library, and an auditorium. The school closed its doors in March of 2016.
Because of the continued success of the Jacksonville campus, Stenotype Institute opened a campus nearby Downtown Orlando in 2002.
The school closed its doors on September 30, 2013.
