The College engages in a partnership with students that provides practical academic and experiential educational opportunities. These opportunities prepare students for entry-level positions and continued career development. Our supportive and encouraging learning environment helps students develop self-sufficiency, leadership qualities and appreciation for lifelong learning. W.T. Parks founded the college in 1895 as Modern Business School. In 1923, the school was renamed Parks School of Business Administration. It was the only private business school in the Denver area to be accredited according to college and university standards. Throughout the years, the parent campus of Parks College moved to various locations in the greater Denver area. In response to a growing student body, the college settled into its current location in 1987. The school is located in the northern metropolitan town of Thornton, Colorado. The college became Parks Junior College until its name was changed in 1995 to Parks College. Parks College was renamed Everest College in 2006. Our programs emphasize real-world training that is tailored to meet the needs of potential employers. The fields of study focus on industries that offer solid, long-term career opportunities for graduates. Here at our campus, we maintain a well-defined program philosophy of providing a quality education that emphasizes practical skills; employ a highly skilled and dedicated faculty; and cater to students seeking a strong knowledge base and the experience needed to succeed in their chosen fields.
