Message from the President

Welcome and thank you for your interest in Peirce College.

First and foremost, at Peirce, we believe that the importance we place on fostering strong relationships with our students significantly differentiates us from others. We take a personal approach to education. From the challenges of a student's first day, to his/her sense of achievement at graduation, Peirce faculty, staff and administrators are dedicated wholeheartedly to working closely with students to maximize their opportunities for success.

When students and graduates talk about their wonderful experiences at Peirce, they frequently speak of the caring nature of people at the College who have helped them achieve their educational and career goals. That warm, personal touch gives Peirce a competitive edge for which we are very proud.

During my more than 20 years of affiliation with Peirce, the College has never been better positioned for a greater, brighter future than it is today. As the College broadens its offerings of lifelong education and services, both inside and outside the classroom, we see more continued and consistent success for our graduates throughout their careers.

The faculty, staff, administration and I are honored to serve Peirce because we know we have something very special here: a place where people are helping working adults make their educational and career dreams come true.


James J. Mergiotti
President and Chief Executive Officer
