School Notes:

In 1881, young Matthew H. Davis left his chairmanship in the mathematics department and his position as director of the business department at Albert College, Belleville, Ontario, to accept the management of Toledo Business College. The small school of 35 students, which had been established in 1858, rapidly grew to 350 students. In January 1983, Mr. John Lambert became President of Davis College. Mr. Lambert expanded the Davis curriculum to include Allied Health, Computer, and Graphic Design programs, which doubled the College's enrollment. In 1986 Davis met the requirements for accreditation by the American Association of Medical Assistants. Davis College is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association (NCA).
