Kaplan Career Institute Campus:

  • Philadelphia

    Kaplan Career Institute, Philadelphia campus, was founded in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in 1918 as Beckley College, a business school offering vocational training to students. Although the name and ownership of the school has changed over the years, our focus on quality education remains strong. After changing its name to Thompson Institute, a branch campus was opened in Philadelphia in October 1982, offering many of the same programs as the Harrisburg campus.

    Thompson Institute was acquired by Quest Education Corporation, a subsidiary of Kaplan, Inc., in 2002. Later that year, Quest changed its name to Kaplan Higher Education Corporation. In January 2012, Thompson Institute became Kaplan Career Institute. Nearly 25 years later, Kaplan Career Institute in Philadelphia continues to offer outstanding career education.
