Quote from the President
“St. Charles Community College (SCC) helps students succeed by providing an accessible, quality education. We do that with relevant programs, a supportive environment and a dedicated, experienced faculty and staff. One out of every four St. Charles County (Mo.) high school graduate chooses to attend SCC each year—more than attend any other college or university.”
- SCC graduates are well prepared for the workforce. Students in allied health programs such as nursing, occupational therapy, and health information technology consistently exceed state and national pass rates for licensure. Frequently, pass rates of 100% have been achieved. In 2010-11, the SCC workforce development department served more than 44,825 participants and helped 39 companies gain access to more than $2 million in Missouri customized training, new jobs, and job retention funds.
- The beautiful 12-building, 235-acre campus has won architectural awards for its innovative, contemporary educational village design.
- In 2007, the SCC campus became completely tobacco-free, both inside and out, providing a healthier learning and working environment for employees, students and guests. SCC was a leader in the state and local area in completely banning tobacco on its premises and was the third community college in Missouri to ban tobacco.
