School Notes

  • Davidson County Community College was chartered in 1958 as an Industrial Education Center designed to provide adults the education and skills needed to move from an agricultural to a manufacturing-based economy. In 1965, the institution was chartered as Davidson County Community College. The Associate in Arts and Associate in Science were added to the existing Associate in Applied Science, Diploma, and Certificate offerings. College transfer courses were added in 1966. Since then, the Davidson Campus has grown to 11 buildings and two emergency services training facilities on approximately 97 acres. Today, DCCC serves approximately 16,000 students each year on the Davidson and Davie campuses and its two satellite centers. With over 50 curriculum programs, the campus continues to grow and expand its educational programs and services. DCCC began offering classes at the Uptown Lexington Education Center May 2004 in a building leased from BB&T at 20 East First Street. Offering curriculum, continuing education, and GED classes, the satellite center is popular with students who enjoy the environment in a smaller class setting and the convenience of the location. The center was made possible by community partners including BB&T, City of Lexington, Davidson Vision, DCCC, Friends of the Project, Lexcom, and Uptown Lexington, Inc. Davidson County Community College provides a variety of curriculum programs that lead to associate degrees, diplomas, or certificates. Some programs are offered during the evening as well as during the day. Diploma programs can generally be completed in three semesters on a full-time basis. Certificate programs may be completed in one or two semesters on a full-time or part-time basis. Both are designed to prepare students for employment, and courses earned often count toward a higher credential. Programs are offered in Applied Technology, Arts & Sciences, Health Technology and Public Service Technology. We provide quality instructional programs and services and wide variety of extracurricular activitiesin a close-knit, nurturing, family environment. Graduates gain new skills while earning a diploma, certificate, or degree and establish a firm foundation for future educational pursuits. Those who transfer to four-year colleges or universities are well prepared for the next step of their journey.
