McCall College (McC) is an American private college located in McCall, Idaho. It primarily serves Valley County, Adams County and Idaho County. McCall also serves as a destination college for students from the Pacific Northwest. [1]

Mission

Provide meaningful post-secondary education for students of all ages helping them achieve their individual and social goals to develop a whole person in community and the world

History

The most recent attempt to build a community-based college in McCall was first proposed by Dr. L. Bryan Williams on his arrival in McCall during the late summer of 2010. During 2011, Williams proposed the idea to a local businessperson, Woody Woodworth and a retired university administrator, Dave Hanson. These three founders incorporated McCall College on December 27, 2011. [2]

In 2012, McCall College became registered with the Idaho State Board of Education so that it could offer certificates in higher education as a private proprietary college. [3] By the summer of 2012, the school was working on recruitment and fundraising; its faculty members and administrators were working as unpaid volunteers. [4] McCall began Professional Technical classes in May 2013. [5] McC's first academic course, Introduction to Geology, was offered in the fall of 2013. In 2014, McCall College received its 501(c)3 designation from the Internal Revenue Service.
