School Notes

  • Heald College is a regionally accredited, private career college that has been preparing students for rewarding careers in Healthcare, Business, Legal, and Technology for over 140 years. We started with one campus in San Francisco, back in 1863, and we've expanded to 11 campuses across the western United States: Concord, Fresno, Hayward, Rancho Cordova, Roseville, Salinas, San Francisco, San Jose, Stockton, Honolulu and Portland. Heald's Honolulu campus has a rich Hawaiian heritage. We're proud of our reputation for high quality education that began in 1917 with the founding campus, Honolulu Business College, and continued in 1934 with the establishment of Cannon's School of Business. The campus that stands today joined the Heald College family in 1993. As the greater Honolulu area emerges as a great market for new jobs with top employers, we continue educating students to become uniquely qualified for rewarding careers in business, technology, legal, and healthcare. Designed to provide the ideal learning environment for people who are looking for a student-centered, career-focused education, the Heald philosophy is based on small class sizes and outstanding instruction. All Heald campuses are regionally accredited through the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). That means we're recognized by the U.S. Department of Education for meeting high standards for providing excellence in education.
