Chestnut Hill College
About Our College
The authorization to establish Hill College was issued in 1921 by the Attorney General of the State of Texas under the name of Hillsboro Junior College. The college first enrolled students in September 1923. At that time there were only two public junior colleges in the state, and Hillsboro Junior College became the first municipal junior college to be chartered in Texas. It was also the first four-year junior college in the country.
