About the School

Anthem College is owned and operated by its parent corporation, the Phoenix-based Anthem Education Group (AEG). AEG oversees a total of six separate college organizations over 24 campuses nationwide. These include Anthem College, Anthem College Online, Anthem Institute, Anthem Career College, The Bryman School of Arizona, and Morrison University. The purpose of all these institutions is to provide career-focused training in healthcare, technology, business, and the legal industries.

AEG got its start in 1965 as the High-Tech Electronics Institute of Arizona. The Brookfield campus wasn’t added until 2006. It was originally the High-Tech Institute, and changed names upon being acquired by the AEG brand.

Programs

The Massage Therapy diploma course prepares students for entry-level massage work in a clinical, spa, or sports facility. Some of the modalities learned include Swedish massage, sports massage, geriatric massage, trigger point therapy, and Eastern studies. These are complimented by business and ethics courses, as well as basic CPR and first aid.

The AAS (Associate of Applied Science) Massage Therapy program builds on the diploma course to offer more advanced and specialized training. In addition to the courses listed above, students learn body systems, respiratory massage, hydrotherapy, and adjunctive modalities. From a business angle, additional courses on communications, finance, computer applications, and risk management are included.

Graduates of both programs spend some time at the end of the program working in a internship/clinical capacity, and are eligible to sit for the national certification exam in keeping with both state and national standards in massage therapy licensing.

Faculty

Faculty members are chosen for their combination of academic training and real-world experience. Many of them currently work (or recently worked) in the massage therapy field, and maintain professional affiliations with area businesses and organizations. As is the case with all Anthem College programs, additional faculty support is available outside of regular class time, giving students even more of an advantage in their learning environment.

Facilities

The learning environment is composed primarily of a modern lab setting that reinforces the use of the same equipment found in the working world today. Students are expected to complete an internship or externship at an area massage clinic, further allowing them to learn in a real massage setting.

Accreditation

Each campus of Anthem College has its own accreditation and accrediting bodies. The Brookfield campus is institutionally accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). It is further approved by the State of Wisconsin Educational Approval Board (EAB) to operate in the state.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to those who qualify. As is the case with most vocation-level training centers, students pay for their education through a combination of federal funding, private loans, scholarships, and regular tuition payments. Federal funding options require that students fill out and file the needed FAFSA forms; grants, loans, and work-study options through the government depend on personal eligibility and need.

About the City

Wisconsin massage schoolsBrookfield is the type of small Wisconsin city that most people associate with life in the Midwest. Although the population is fairly small, and the focus is on family and community, the larger Milwaukee city center is just a short drive away. This allows for the perfect combination of study, work, and play—espeically for students who are coming here specifically for an education in massage therapy. Although there aren’t many job opportunities in the immediate area, there are a number of shopping and dining venues, as well as parks and natural preserve areas to create a fun and active lifestyle.
