Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) is a two year community college in Lexington, Kentucky. The school was formed in 2004 from two merging institutions, Central Kentucky Technical College and Lexington Community College, to create a large, comprehensive community college that can serve the needs of students in the following counties of Kentucky: Anderson, Bourbon, Boyle, Clark, Fayette, Franklin, Jessamine, Madison, Mercer, Scott, and Woodford. Today, there are over 11,000 students enrolled from throughout the Lexington area and beyond.
There are seven campuses in the BCTC system. The Cooper campus is located in Lexington; the Danville campus is in Danville; the Georgetown campus, home to the industrial maintenance technology program, is in Georgetown; the Lawrenceburg campus is in Lawrenceburg; the Leestown campus is in Lexington; the Regency campus, home to the business program, is in Lexington; and the Winchester campus is in Winchester. The Cooper campus is located adjacent to the campus of the University of Kentucky and shares many of the university’s resources—particularly convenient for students who wish to transfer to the university after graduating.
In addition to the seven main campuses, the college also offers classes at the downtown adult education center in Lexington, the Toyota manufacturing facility at Georgetown-Scott County Manufacturing Center, the Lancaster Higher Education Center, and Royal Springs Middle School in Georgetown.
