Parks College was founded by W.T. Parks in 1895 under the name Modern Business School. In July 1923, the school was renamed Parks School of Business Administration. This was the only private business school in Denver to be accredited according to college and university standards. Even during the Great Depression of the 1930's, Parks remained a thriving institution, continuing to train students for business education. In response to a growing student body, the school moved in 1968 and again in the late 1970's. In 1987, the College was renamed Parks Junior College, and to better serve students throughout the area, it relocated to its present site in northern metropolitan Denver. In 1989, the College opened a branch campus in Aurora. In 1995, the name changed to Parks College, and in October 1996, was acquired by Rhodes Colleges, Inc. (RCI).
In 1989, a branch of the North campus was opened in Aurora. Southeast of Denver, the Aurora location helps serve students throughout the metropolitan area. Parks College is owned and operated by RCI, a division of Corinthian Colleges, Inc. (CCI). In late 2001, the Aurora campus moved to its current location. CCI is one of the largest postsecondary school organizations in the United States, operating over 55 colleges and institutions nationwide.
