Continuing a rich history of serving the community. In 2013, St. Francis Career College merged with American Career College in order to continue its mission of providing quality health care education programs to residents of Lynwood. American Career College now combines advanced technology with hands-on learning to further advance educational opportunities.
The Lynwood campus, previously named St. Francis, has a long history of educating students who in turn bring their vocational skills to the hospitals and medical facilities within Lynwood, serving the community in which they grew up.
Until June, 2013, the St. Francis Career College (SFCC) was owned and managed by St. Francis Medical Center (SFMC), a member of Daughters of Charity Health System, a not-for-profit organization. In keeping with its commitment of service to the community, St. Francis Medical Center established a High School Vocational Nurse (VN) Training Program in April 1988, under the administration and leadership of Sister Margaret Keaveney, D.C., F.A.C.H.E. The initial class was established in collaboration with the Lynwood Unified School District.
In 1993, the success of this vocational program led to its expansion into the St. Francis Medical Center Vocational Nurse Program, in collaboration with the Compton Unified School District ROP, the City of Los Angeles Private Industry Council under the Job Training Partnership Act, and the James Irvine Foundation. In 1996, the SFMC Vocational Nurse program was renamed St. Francis Career College and the Nurse Assistant (NA) program was added.
