Highland Community College


Many choices to help you see anywhere.

You’ve been told that college should be among the best experiences of your life. At Highland Community College, it can be. With a community of six locations covering a 230-mile area in northeast Kansas, you’ll be within two hours of cities like Lawrence, Topeka and Kansas City, and equally near such major universities as the University of Kansas, Kansas State University, Washburn University, Missouri Western State University, and the University of Missouri KC. Holiday weekend ahead? Grab your roommate and explore one of the vibrant, nearby cities. 

Opportunities like this won’t always be available, so take advantage of the chance to make it all about you – your dreams and your goals. As a student at HCC, you can be confident knowing that you are our mission. Whether you’re studying astronomy at the Perry campus or diesel technology at the Technical Center in Atchison, our goal is to ensure that you’re gathering the lifelong knowledge you came to find. Our instructors and staff members are here to guide you toward becoming the most informed, productive and successful version of who you want to be.
