President's Message

Dr. Ron Chesbrough

Dear Friends,

I invite you to explore all that we have to offer at St. Charles Community College.

We are a choice destination in the region for learners of all ages and for those who seek to teach and work in a positive, student-centered environment. Named a 2014 Top Workplace by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and a 2014 Great College to Work For by The Chronicle of Higher Education, SCC offers endless opportunities for growth, challenge, and learning in a supportive environment.

Thousands of SCC graduates have gone on to pursue their educational goals over the past quarter century. Many live, work and make a difference right here in St. Charles County. With affordable pricing and open admissions, all who can benefit from the college’s programs and services have access to a quality education at SCC.

The college works continuously to maintain strong community partnerships supporting economic development and workforce training. We serve the community in many ways, with continuing education classes for lifelong learners, youth programs, programs in the arts and many cultural events year-round.

Helping students to be successful is at the center of the SCC mission. We are fortunate to have dedicated and experienced faculty and staff focused on teaching and learning. Students have access to academic and career counselors and abundant resources to support their learning. Services of the ACE Tutoring Center are free and open to all learners. A new office supporting our military veterans is also available.

The college offers a wide range of financial assistance and scholarship options. Students and prospective students are encouraged to explore all of the options available for funding their education at SCC.

We also want students to get involved. The connections made here at SCC will serve students well into the future. From clubs and activities to athletic, cultural and educational events, there are a number of ways to connect with other students and to be active on campus.

I invite you to visit the campus or explore our website for more information. I also encourage you to visit www.stchas.edu/BeReady to explore ways to prepare for college, manage finances for college, plan for a career and ensure your success in college.

We are here and ready to welcome and support you from day one.

Sincerely,

Ron Chesbrough, Ph.D.
President
