History of Ayers Career College
A Technical College in Shreveport, LA Established in 1953
Ayers School of Business, Inc. was founded in 1953 by Mrs. Pearl Ayers. She developed the teaching philosophy and personal interest in the student, which are still guiding principles today. For many years, the school was located in downtown Shreveport. The first location was on Texas Street. Later it was moved to the Town House on Common Street.
Mrs. Ayers retired in 1977. In 1979, after twenty-seven years in downtown Shreveport, the School was moved to a new facility on Wilkinson Street in Shreveport. In 1979, Ayers Career College introduced its Heating/AC/Refrigeration program, which is still being taught today. In 1980, the School’s name changed to reflect the technical trades’ addition to the School’s curriculum. The School was moved again in April 1991 to facilitate the addition of the newly expanded operations, which included their Medical Assistant program that is taught today.
The mission of Ayers Career College is to educate students to achieve personal and career success.
Growth in the New Millennium
Since then, programs have been added to more directly serve the needs of the local business community. Ayers Institute, Inc. was moved to a larger facility located at 3010 Knight Street, Shreveport, LA, in April 2001. The school was formed to meet the needs of the businesses located in the Ark-La-Tex region. Ayers Career College’s objective remains the same as it was at its founding: to educate personnel to meet the job requirements of an advanced and technical age.
In 2004, Ayers introduced its Pharmacy Technician program to its portfolio of training options. In December 2006, Ayers Career College became operational at 8820 Jewella Avenue, Shreveport, Louisiana 71108, where they currently reside.
