Quinsigamond Community College has begun a new chapter in Southbridge with Southbridge Public Schools. Our Southbridge location moved from Optical Drive to a much larger space within Southbridge Middle High School. The strengthened partnership will allow us to become more embedded in the community and bring new possibilities to high school students.
“Being closer to the communities we serve allows for a broader footprint in the region as a whole, and a more comprehensive approach to program development. Southbridge High School is a recognized and central location in the South County area,” QCC President Luis G. Pedraja, Ph.D.
"I look forward to building a strategic partnership with QCC. Together I believe we can help the students of Southbridge High School engage in rigorous early college experiences, participate in internships, and pursue other academic endeavors while also supporting the larger Southbridge community by keeping QCC and its high-quality educational offerings in the Town of Southbridge,” Southbridge Receiver/Superintendent of Schools, Jeffrey Villar, Ph.D.
“The Town Council is very excited that Quinsigamond Community College has entered into an agreement with the Town of Southbridge Public Schools and will remain as a fixture in the Town of Southbridge. We believe this partnership will be beneficial to our students and the community,” said Jack Jovan, chairman of the Southbridge Town Council.
In response to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, our Fall semester will be delivered through online and remote instruction. All of our support services are available remotely to make sure that our students are getting everything they need to be successful. In-person classes will resume once it is safe to do so. More information is available at www.QCC.edu.
“This is an exciting time in our college’s history. We have been working with Southbridge and regional leaders to develop a plan to help strengthen the K-12 system, create educational pathways responding to workforce development needs in the community, and expand and solidify the relationship between QCC and the South County region,” President Pedraja said.
“I was truly impressed with the meeting that I was part of when officials at Quinsigamond presented their ideas to Dr. Villar and town officials. We look forward to the opening of the school facility and the programs that QCC will bring to the community,” Mr. Jovan added.
