Our History

Miller-Motte started with one campus in 1916 in the city of Wilmington, NC. Founded by Judge Leon Motte, the school began as a training center for courtroom stenographers. Eventually in the late 1980s, Miller-Motte expanded into Tennessee and began to evolve. Miller-Motte now includes 11 campuses spread across five different states: North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia. Miller-Motte is a part of Ancora Education.
