About Our College
The college was officially started in 1908 as an agricultural high school. The Pike County Agricultural High School opened on September 3, 1918, after receiving approval from the Pike County School Board the previous April. The high school began to incorporate college work into the curriculum in 1929 and by 1932 the school had become a junior college. Fifty-four years later in 1988, the name of the school was officially changed to Southwest Mississippi Community College.
