Louisiana Technical College provides statewide technical and vocational education and
is composed of seven districts with forty campuses, each consisting of a multicultural population encompassing
much diversification in the way of ideas, traditions, values, skills, and arts. This college is governed by
the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) Board of Supervisors, which in turn comes under
regulations set forth by the Louisiana Board of Regents for Higher Education.
In 1952, the Louisiana State Legislature established the Sabine Parish Trade School as a state-operated, public, post-secondary school under the governance of the Louisiana Department of Education. The purpose was to offer broader vocational educational opportunities to the people of DeSoto, Sabine, and Vernon Parishes.
Mr. C. C. Ferguson was appointed Director of the school. Extension classes in Business Training began in September 1952 in the three-parish area. The main building was completed in early 1953, and in June of that year, the following day programs were offered: Auto Mechanics, Farm Mechanics, Carpentry, and Business Training. The demand for Radio-TV technicians in this area brought about the addition of this program in 1957. Since classes were open-entry, open-exit, graduation dates varied according to individual progress and length of program.
Louisiana Technical College-Sabine Valley Campus is located in Sabine Parish at 1255 Fisher Road in Many, Louisiana, and primarily services the residents of Sabine Parish. The brick structure sits on a ten-acre tract just outside the city limits of Sabine. The geographic area served by the college includes Sabine Parish and the northern part of Vernon Parish. Towns and communities served include Many, Zwolle, Converse, Pleasant Hill, Belmont, Florien, Negreet, Ebarb, Hornbeck, and Anacoco.
The Accrediting Commission of the Council on Occupational Education (COE) accredits each individual campus of the Louisiana Technical College.
