Organization and Campus History
Texas County Technical College (TCTC) began classes on October 21, 1996, in a small rented office with a couple of classrooms. Understanding the value of higher education, Texas County embraced our vision and enrollment increased. Many of the TCTC students had jobs before enrolling but were looking to advance their skills or even change careers. In 2000, TCTC was awarded a state grant and now occupies its own facilities located on South US 63 in Houston, Missouri. Due to the increased demand in the medical field, TCTC added the Practical Nursing program in 2000, a Paramedic program in 2003, an RN Bridge program in 2005, and an Accelerated LPN to RN program in 2009. In the spring of 2009, the name, Texas County Technical Institute was officially changed to Texas County Technical College, and the college continues to have a substantial impact on Houston and the surrounding areas.
Texas County Technical College will provide the highest quality educational experience for individuals seeking affordable, personalized, technical programs and general education in response to the ever changing employment needs of the community.
