In its 57-year history, Frederick Community College has grown from 77 students to more than 17,000 students registered this past year in the academic and continuing education & workforce development divisions. Started in 1957 as an evening school, FCC moved from Frederick High School to 520 North Market Street, and finally, in 1970, to its permanent home on Opossumtown Pike.
With teaching and learning as our primary focus, FCC prepares an increasingly diverse student body to complete their goals of workforce preparation, transfer, career development and personal enrichment with quality, innovative lifelong learning. In traditional and alternative learning environments, we anticipate and respond to the needs of our local, regional and global communities.
Thank you for your interest in Frederick Community College. Our diverse campus is an asset and educational haven for students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. While many students complete the first two years of their bachelor’s degree at FCC, many students pursue job skills for direct entry into the marketplace – they are our community’s nurses, accountants, chefs and more. Others take courses for fun, to learn and grow.
Our friendly faculty and staff are here to serve you. I hope you will take advantage of our many offerings and resources, and I look forward to seeing you on our campus.
Yours in learning,
President of FCC
