Welcome and thank you for looking at our website. Forrest College is “the small college that can make a BIG difference in your life!” At Forrest College, we offer the personal touch of knowing one another by name throughout our family environment. Our faculty and staff work with you to ensure you reach your educational and professional goals. We have small class sizes so you get personal attention. Finding the support to return to school can be a worrisome process. We encourage you by offering free onsite child care. We understand that finding a trust worthy child care provider can be costly and time consuming. You can attend classes, have your children close to you, and trust they are being supervised by experienced staff. Forrest College faculty and staff are highly motivated to work with you. We encourage you to try new things because we feel learning is a daily process. We provide an environment that allows you to learn the necessary skills for success in life and to be a contributing member of society. We want to express our appreciation to the Anderson community for supporting Forrest College activities, externships, employing our graduates, and allowing the College to provide educational opportunities to the diverse Anderson County population.We also want to express our appreciation to the Forrest College staff and students. We invite you to visit us and share your concerns, challenges, and success stories as a former, current, or potential student. Your education and future are important to us. We want to help you reach your educational goal by starting you on the journey to a brighter future. We are here for you.
