  • About

    Mineral Area College was founded in April 1965 by popular vote of the residents of six public school districts in St. Francois and Madison counties and portions of Washington and Ste. Genevieve counties. The school districts include North County R-1, Central R-3, Farmington R-7, Bismarck R-5, West County R-4, and Fredericktown R-1. The college became a successor to Flat River Junior College, the third-oldest public junior college in Missouri, established in 1922 as part of the Flat River Public School System. Since then, thousands of graduates have entered the working world with the college's degrees or certificates.

    In continuing the education legacy of Flat River Junior College, Mineral Area College evolved into a comprehensive community college. The academic transfer program almost doubled in size and scope within the first five years of the college's existence. In 1966, the career and technical education division was added. The first vocationally-oriented programs were initiated in September 1966 and consisted of secretarial practice, business management and two technology programs. In 1967, a certificate course in practical nursing was introduced; in 1968, an associate degree in nursing program was added.

    In February 1970, the young institution moved into its new facilities on a 226-acre campus located near U.S. 67 and entered a transitional period of gradual expansion. At present, Mineral Area College offers 35 career and technical education programs and required general education courses which can be applied to almost all academic majors.
