Established in 1962 by Bert Schiff, Nancy Taylor Secretarial School was created for non-college bound women and featured a new high-tech alpha based short hand system. From 1964 until the early 1970′s, the school offered women secretarial training, modeling, poise, and finishing skills. In 1969 the school began to change its focus from modeling and finishing to the development of employable office skills.
In August 1973, Nancy Taylor Secretarial School was accredited by AICS (Association of Independent Colleges and Schools). In December 1975, to reflect its mission to provide broader opportunities for business education, the College’s name was changed to Taylor Business Institute and was approved to grant its first associate degree in 1983.
Today, progressive, business-minded men and women call Taylor Business Institute their home for education and training. Taylor’s diploma and associate degree programs provide students with essential skills in such areas as computers, electronics, accounting, business, medical billing and criminal justice. Taylor’s associate degree programs also provide students with the foundation in general education necessary for success in today’s diverse society and global workforce. This general education core also supports Taylor’s English as a Second Language certificate program.
During the past 48 years, Taylor has empowered thousands of graduates. Under the current management, the college continues to prosper and is a business with a family flair.
