- Chipola Junior College was founded in 1947 and operated for one year as a private educational institution. Chipola Junior College entered in a new stage when it officially became Chipola College on August 18, 2003. The name had to be changed because from this time forward Chipola is offering 4 year degrees in Science and Math. The majority of students who attend Chipola College are natives of the five-county district served by the college. Thus, most students are from a rural or small town background. Marianna, with a population of about 10,000, is the largest city in the district. The population of the entire district is less than 94,000. Most regional students commute to the campus. Most out-of-state and foreign students live in Chipola's Residence Hall. Chipola College offers Baccalaureate (four year) degree programs in Secondary or Middle School Education. Chipola College's Math and Science Education degrees prepare students to teach mathematics and/or science in middle and/or high school. Graduates of these programs will be certified to teach either mathematics and/or science in Florida middle or high school. Our Workforce Development programs offer associate degrees and certifications in several fields in addition to offering worker retraining and employee development for area employers.
