Welcome to Highland Community College


The Highland mission:    

Highland Community College is committed to shaping the future of our communities by providing quality education and learning opportunities through programs and services that encourage the personal and professional growth of the people of northwestern Illinois.

As a community college, our mission is built around meeting the needs of our greater northwest Illinois community through quality educational and cultural programs. We are proud to have served thousands of students at our campus in Freeport and at satellite locations throughout the district.

In addition to offering comprehensive academic programming with over 60 degrees and certificates, Highland is a beacon of cultural opportunity. Our theatre, arts, music, literature and lecture series are popular throughout the area. And our Cougars have a strong record of athletic successes.

We Welcome You!

We welcome our communities to take a stroll around our beautiful campus, enjoy the sounds of our many community choirs and musical groups, listen to a guest lecturer, watch an athletic event, and, perhaps, enroll in a class or two. Witness first hand some of the many wonderful things happening at Highland Community College. Highland – an institution of exceptional quality – represents a bright, shining resource for northwest Illinois.
