How We Started
In 2013,the founding educators of Piedmont Online Institute provided the vision, leadership, and a portion of the initial funding for the incorporation of The Piedmont Online Institution, a distance-learning institution in Greensboro, North Carolina. It was founded for the purpose of providing a pathway for success and leadership for adult learners. The focus is to bring about a quality distance-learning adult career institution.
The institute focused on providing adults with a convenient and quality online learning environment to meet their career education and professional development goals. Piedmont Online Institute realized that adults need convenient online learning services to meet their professional development needs, and to be able to acquire academic credentials in a format that would limit the interference in their already demanding lives. We provide the solution to those issues.
The Piedmont Online Institution education format allows adult learners to work toward your academic advancement goals while still letting them maintain current life obligations. Here,at Piedmont Online Institute you can work at your own pace and schedule your time to complete assignments from your home and other remote locations. Our format offers an almost guaranteed pathway to academic and career mobility success.
In 2014, our company began the process of becoming an accredited institution of higher learning through the Southern Accreditation of Colleges and Schools. We opened more career-enhancing courses and offered associate and bachelor’s degrees in the fields of medicine, business, technology, and education.
We are licensed by the North Carolina Board of Community Colleges.
The mission of Piedmont Online Institute is to provide transformative quality online education to adult learners through the most effective 21st-century technology available in higher education in order to ensure valuable, efficient, flexible, and excellent learning that will prepare our students with the knowledge and skills to be successful in their chosen occupation.
