The WyoTech campus in Laramie is the latest school to shut down, leaving students to wonder what’s next.
The school’s parent-company, Zenith Education Group, has announced it will be closing all but three of its campuses. Those staying open are located in Tampa, Florida; Norcross, Georgia and Houston, Texas.
Zenith calls the move part of their new phase in delivering on its mission of helping students succeed by allowing for increased focus on the most effective initiatives and innovative ideas.
In a release, they say the campuses will “cease enrolling new students and be taught out, providing the approximately 5,400 students across the ground and online campuses the opportunity to complete their programs. In addition, Zenith will reach out to local educational institutions, nonprofit organizations and community groups to inquire if there is interest in using our existing facilities within their communities.”
Zenith says many of their campuses are located in areas that are geographically inconvenient for underserved students so they will focus on their remaining three campuses.
