Zenith Education Group Introduces Altierus

New Name Reflects Vision, Transformation Underway for Nonprofit Career College Campuses

MINNEAPOLIS (July 19, 2017) — Zenith Education Group today introduced Altierus, the new brand name for its Everest career college campuses. Altierus will be launched over the next few weeks in markets where the schools are located.,

"When we acquired these schools more than two years ago, we focused on righting their course to provide a quality experience that helps students get good, family-supporting jobs in high-growth industries where skilled workers are lacking. Having laid this critical groundwork, we're now in a position to build on it and reach our ultimate vision of becoming a third pathway for nontraditional students for whom community colleges and for-profit schools haven't worked," said Peter Taylor, president and chief executive officer of Zenith Education Group. "It's time our name accurately reflects our offerings in how we communicate about ourselves to students, the employers who hire our graduates and the communities that support them." Read more >

The remaining 21 Everest locations will carry the name Altierus. Zenith made the decision to change names last fall, according to Peter Taylor, its president and CEO.

"It was really hard to shake the reputation of the past," he said. "Every conversation we had to say, 'We're not those guys.'" Read more >
