School Notes:

Miles Community College has come a long ways since its inception in 1939. Housed in parts of Custer County High School for 18 years, Miles Community College was Custer County Junior College back then. In 1957, we moved to the old train depot. Around 1967, the American Legion donated the land where Miles Community College sits, and the College began to grow. Although much has changed over the past 65 years, the reasons for coming to Miles Community College have not. Miles Community College offers quality programs. Students who did not graduate from high school can complete their GED on campus or online. MCC offers Associate of Arts and Science degrees with emphases in Elementary Education, Equine Studies, Paraprofessional Educator, Physical Education, Agribusiness, Biofuels, Business, and Pre-Engineering. An Associate of Science in Nursing is offered which train students to become registered nurses. MCC offers Associate of Applied Science degrees in Automotive Technology, Building Technology, Biofuels, Office Technology, Small Business Management, Energy Technology, Equine Studies, Health Information Technology (Coding or Medical Transcription), Information Technology (Graphic and Web Design Option or Networking and PC Maintenance Option), and Radiology Technology (partnership with Montana Tech College of Technology in Butte, MT).
