CDE Career Institute Under New Ownership
CDE Career Institute’s President Tina Albright is pleased to announce that Robert (Bob) and Catherine Cunningham have acquired CDE Career Institute. These life-long educators are the owners of Twenty First Century Minds, LLC - an educational services company – and bring considerable experience as well as enthusiasm to our school.
“We had the opportunity to join several schools, but we decided that we wanted to be part of CDE because the President and instructors are so clearly committed to the students and to doing whatever it takes to prepare students for employment,” Bob commented. He continues, “We also loved that the state backs up the programs by ensuring that they prepare students in areas where jobs are actually available locally. In the end, it really is all about the jobs.”
Bob and Catherine have both previously served as teachers and administrators. Bob is the former Head of School for The Gateway Schools, which serves students with learning differences in kindergarten through eighth grade in New York City. He holds a B.S. in education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and two Masters Degrees from Teachers College, Columbia University. Bob was recognized in 2011 by The Huffington Post as a Game Changer in the field of education. Catherine holds a B.A. from William Smith College and two Masters Degrees from Teachers College, Columbia University. “We are so thrilled that our family has an opportunity to serve the Poconos community through the important work of CDE,” remarked Catherine.
CDE Career Institute is the premier career training school in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The school is licensed under the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Bureau of Postsecondary and Adult Education and holds national accreditation through the Council on Occupational Education (COE). Founded in 1996, CDE Career Institute offers diploma programs in the areas of PC Applications, Help Desk, Medical Office Assistant, Medical Transcription/Insurance Billing and Computerized Office Assistant that are taught with a flexible schedule and a “hands-on” approach to learning. CDE Career Institute also is an authorized testing center for the Microsoft Office Specialist examinations. Financial aid is available for those who qualify.
