Bryant & Stratton was founded 150 years ago to provide practical workplace education.

Keeping abreast of these contemporary needs requires the college to continuously revise and enhance curriculum, modify outcomes, and embrace or develop new teaching and learning methodologies.
The teacher population of 39 teachers has grown by 50% over five years.
