September 20, 2018, Indianapolis, IN

When Harrison College closed its doors last Friday, September 14th with very little warning, more than 1,300 students were displaced at the school’s nine campuses across Indiana, with three campuses in downtown Indianapolis alone.

Kenzie Academy, an education and apprenticeship program with its first campus in Indianapolis, is offering to come to the rescue. Chok Ooi, co-founder and CEO of Kenzie Academy, announced today that the school will offer tuition assistance of up to $12,000 to Harrison College students who are admitted into one of Kenzie’s three programs.
