St. Charles Parish to Get Its Own Community College After $3 Million United Way CommitmentNovember 12, 2019 |

St. Charles Parish students wanting to enroll in college classes soon won’t have to drive to New Orleans or Reserve, thanks to a $3 million commitment by the local United Way that will bring a community college to Boutte.
A fourth campus of the River Parishes Community College system will occupy a 15,000-square-foot space in a strip mall on the parish’s west bank. Organizers hope up to 400 students will enroll in classes at the new campus.
