A Trusted Michigan Career School  for over 80 Years

In 1934, Ruth Dorsey founded the Dorsey School to meet the growing demand in business for highly skilled operators of Victor and Burroughs’ comptometer machines. In its day, the comptometer was the most advanced technology for data tabulation and was widely used, well into the 1960’s.

Today, Dorsey remains a committed career training school that prepares individuals for promising career opportunities, technology training, and certifications for the medical, culinary arts, skilled trades, and cosmetology fields.

Dorsey Schools is institutionally accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools and serves the Michigan area with ten convenient locations: Dearborn, Farmington Hills, Lansing, Madison Heights, Roseville, Saginaw, Southgate, Taylor, Waterford-Pontiac and Wayne-Westland.

In 2011 Dorsey opened their first Dorsey School of Beauty located in Taylor Michigan. Dorsey School of Beauty is institutionally accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences.
