North Shore Community College is located in three different sites in Massachusetts including the towns of Danvers, Lynn, and Beverly. Founded in 1965, it is “the oldest and largest" community college in Massachusetts. Impressively enough, North Shore has grown exceedingly since 1965, beginning with only 5 majors to over 100 major programs and from a “single building to three campuses.” North Shore is regionally accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
It is North Shore’s mission to serve as more than just an institution of higher education, but to act as an agent of change in which the community will be positively impacted. North Shore envisions that it will be the force behind the change that will lead an increase in opportunities for the region and community overall.
