School Notes:

  • • Neosho County Community College (NCCC) traces its beginnings to Chanute Junior College, established in 1936 so that graduates of Chanute High School as well as other area high schools could attend college close to home. Chanute Junior College operated as a part of the public school system and was governed by the Chanute Board of Education until July 1, 1965. • In 1961, State legislation provided the means for the college to become a countywide community junior college, and on July 1, 1965, Chanute Junior College became Neosho County Community Junior College, an institution with its own governing Board of Trustees. Voters in Neosho County passed a bond issue in October 1965, providing for a four-building campus, separate from the high school, to be constructed in the southwestern part of Chanute. The new facilities—two instructional buildings, with one containing an administrative center; a library; and a student center—were ready for use at the start of the 1968 fall semester. Added to the campus was an interdenominational chapel, a gift from the estate of the late Jewel and K.C. Snyder. • Our instructors are all degreed professionals with years of experience in their fields and years of experience in education. The faculty are constantly updating their knowledge and ensuring that the curriculum is in line with transfer institutions, so you will be fully prepared for junior and senior level classes no matter where you transfer to complete your bachelor\'s degree. • NCCC operates on a two semester school year - spring and fall - with a summer term. However, many short-term, on-line and weekend classes are offered within each semester. Our Ottawa campus offers extensive block scheduling and weekend classes to meet the needs of adult students. • The new slogan the College is: The education you need. The attention you deserve. One way we are insuring we are providing the education you need with the attention you deserve, is through the development of on-line courses that will allow you to learn in your home at the times convenient for your life. This semester, six faculty members are working with the College\'s new JICS software package to design learning packages that can be delivered over the internet. These courses will be in our fall schedule and serve as the foundation courses for a full degree program to be delivered in this modality. • Sports Associations Memberships: National Athletic Association, National Junior College Athletic Association
