StateFair_where_you_areReaching out to communities across the west central Missouri region, SFCC is helping map a course for success!

State Fair Community College serves 14 counties in west central Missouri and has locations in seven 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 we serve. Maybe you’ll see us in a local student who received an education and brought back valuable work experience. Or, in an area business that found just the right training for its employees. Or, in a community leader who is helping guide the college’s future. Or, people like you who are following their dreams. SFCC is where you are!
