Two Bay Area Colleges Set To Close

The Art Institute of California, San Francisco, and the Alameda campus of Argosy University are shutting their doors. According to SF Gate, Dream Center Education Holdings who owns the schools said, “Local demand at the physical locations where we decided to discontinue campus-based programs has been far surpassed by the demand for online programs in these markets, as evidenced by declining enrollments which have made these campuses unsustainable,” Anne Dean, the Dream Center’s senior director of communications, said in an email. “We came to realize we would need to discontinue campus programs on a larger scale if we were to truly focus on investing toward a more flexible curriculum to meet student demand.”
