Mission Statement

Heald College provides focused programs in business and technology that prepare students for success in the workplace in the shortest practical time.

The Heald College Family

Heald College is a nonprofit, regionally accredited institution with 11 campuses in the western United States. We offer 18-month associate degrees, 12-month diplomas, and 6-9 month technical certification training programs that prepare students for today's hottest careers in business and technology.


Over 137 years ago, 20-year-old Edward Payson Heald traveled across the United States to open the first Heald College in San Francisco, California on August 8, 1863. Heald's mission was to prepare students for business careers that focused on practical, hands-on learning. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, Heald College weathered the 1906 earthquake and fire and two world wars while remaining true to its original mission. As the needs of the workplace changed, the Heald College curriculum evolved from courses in penmanship to degrees in business and technology, with campuses opening across California, Hawaii, and Oregon.

As Heald College heads toward its own Sesquicentennial, we look back on a proud history as the first business college in the western United States. Records were destroyed in the 1906 earthquake and fire, but legend has it that Heald alumni include such notables as Leland Stanford, Jr., namesake of Stanford University and A.P. Gianini, founder of Bank of America.
