EDUCATION WHERE YOU LIVE

Cook County Higher Education (CCHE) is a non-profit organization established in 1996 to address four critical issues facing our rural remote community: extreme isolation, skilled worker shortages, limited career advancement, and lack of higher education opportunities. With the nearest college or university over 100 miles away, CCHE makes it possible for local residents to earn a certificate, diploma, or degree that leads to living wage employment right here in our community. In the past 10 years, CCHE has expanded its offerings to include college prep, workforce training and lifelong learning opportunities.
