About Us

Our History

WFI City College, a nonprofit affiliate of Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) began providing career education in 1974 as Metropolitan Career Center (MCC). MCC was founded by members of the First United Methodist Church in Germantown PA. Initially MCC offered a variety of basic career programs to meet to needs of its community. As the needs of the community grew, so did the program offerings of the school to diploma and degree-granting programs through its Computer Technology Institute (CTI). In 2012, MCC and CTI were purchase by PHMC, and continues to provide valuable career-oriented training to its communities in and around North Philadelphia.
