    Strayer, founded in 1892 as Strayer's Business College in Baltimore, was bought by its president, Ron K. Bailey, in 1989. It went public last July with the sale of 3 million shares at $10 a share. The company filed last month for the sale of another 1.15 million shares.

    Part of the proceeds from the pending sale would be used to expand Strayer's student loan program and possibly to finance a $3 million acquisition of a 10th campus in Alexandria, the company said. The company began classes in Prince George's County this month.

    "With the approval to expand our programs into Maryland, new possibilities exist for growth," Bailey said in a statement early this year. He said Strayer also intends to increase the number of courses it offers through the Internet and to expand its links to both governments and corporations who use the firm to provide courses for their employees.
