Established in 1924 under the leadership of Texas community college pioneer Randolph Lee Clark, North Central Texas College is the oldest continuously operating public two-year college in the state. From its roots as a small, rural "junior" college -- an extension of the local public schools actually -- NCTC has grown and matured into a comprehensive, full-service community college of truly regional scope, serving students from six major campuses located across its service area.
History of NCTC
The North Central Texas College Community College District is one of 50 public community college districts statewide. Although the actual college district boundaries are coterminous with those of Cooke County, NCTC reaches far beyond its home campus in Gainesville to bring high education programs and services to residents of a large service area which also includes Denton and Montague counties and Graham ISD.
