"The largest group of these colleges—accounting for 45 percent of enrollment—belongs to Education Corporation of America, which operates Brightwood College, Virginia College, and Professional Golfers Career College. After the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET) denied accreditation from Virginia College last month, it issued a long letter detailing the school’s systemic failures—including that 31 of its 33 campuses failed to meet minimum graduation and job placement standards and that some campuses had significant employee turnover rates, including one as high as 75 percent. In response, ECA stated that the review covered less than half of its campuses and that it had only two weeks to respond to the reports, some of which they claim contain errors. Virginia College is appealing the decision. While the agency has not outright rejected Brightwood College campuses, they’ve been continuously deferred and will be reconsidered in December."
