BROOKFIELD — Anthem College in Brookfield will close if it isn’t able to find a buyer or secure financing, according to a state notice.

Closing the online school’s Brookfield location, 440 S. Executive Drive, will result in the loss of about 30 jobs, according to a notice filed with the state Department of Workforce Development. The closing becomes effective Sept. 15 if the school is unable to find financing or a potential buyer, according to the notice.

The school attributed the closing to unforeseen circumstances and the school’s rapidly deteriorating financial condition, the notice said.

The Brookfield school has been open since 2006, and offers technical training for medical careers. It is one of several campuses operated by Anthem Education, a Phoenix-based holding company.
