The Salter School is named for founder Dorothy Lowell Salter, who created the school in 1937 to train women to become professional secretaries. It was known then as the Salter Secretarial School, and changed to simply the "Salter School" in 1981 to reflect the increased diversity of its programs. The Premier Education Group, L.P., purchased the school in 2002, and it has only grown since then.
