Visit BCTC Campuses
Published on Feb 7, 2017
At BCTC we have a shared culture focused on a welcoming learning environment and a commitment to student success. Additionally, we love to host events and activities that bring guests and visitors to campus. Each of BCTC’s campuses also has its own individual culture and commitment to the communities we serve. This semester, we celebrate the opening of the newest building and a new campus: the Georgetown-Scott County Campus (GSCC) - Advanced Manufacturing Center. We are welcoming more than 240 students with 15 faculty and staff who are beginning to create the culture of the GSCC. Here, and at the Danville Campus, the majority of students are in technical and career programs. Across the college, about half of the students are studying to enter careers with certificates, a diploma, or an associate degree as their goal. The others in the student population are in courses preparing to transfer to attain a bachelor’s degree in fields such as education, social work, business, information technology, nursing, or engineering.
Our regional campuses hold events and activities to support students and welcome community members onto campus.

- Lawrenceburg Campus welcomed the Adult Education program that BCTC is now operating for Anderson County and hosts chamber of commerce and other community events.
We are grateful that these communities welcome and support BCTC students and the local campuses. We appreciate the many partners we have throughout Central Kentucky including K-12 educational districts and schools, the business community, economic development agencies, chambers of commerce, social services, training and adult education agencies, and others. It actually takes many communities to help students succeed.
