State Fair Community College serves 14 counties in west central Missouri and has locations in six cities. The college’s taxing district, designed in 1966, includes most of Benton and Pettis counties. The city of Otterville was added to the district by annexation in 1985. In 1995, state legislation expanded the college’s service area to include Carroll, Cooper, Moniteau, Cole, Morgan, Miller, Johnson, Henry, Saline, St. Clair, Hickory, and Camden counties.

It’s easy to see SFCC’s impact on the communities it serves. Maybe you know a local student who received an education and brought back valuable work experience or an area business that found just the right training for its employees. Perhaps you know a community leader who is helping guide the college’s future. SFCC is where you are!

sfcc-1SFCC is “all in the family.”

“My wife just recently graduated from SFCC, and my daughter is attending now. I attended because it’s on base and convenient, and I wanted to earn my CCAF degree. After I received it, I decided to stay and obtain another degree. It’s a very friendly environment; the teachers are professional and helpful, and the classes are not too big, so there’s more one-on-one time.”

–Bruce Holden
