History

Brighton College was founded in 1961 as Modern Schools, Inc, to provide the most up-to-date distance education programs in the hospitality field. The school’s name was later changed to Hospitality Training Center and then shortened to HTC in 1989 to better reflect the scope and philosophy of the training programs. In 2001, HTC merged with Ohio Professional Education Center to form HTC Distance Education. In 2004, HTC Distance Education was purchased by Brighton College, offering certificate, diploma, and degree programs through our online college classes.
