Education for Life

Someone said that children are the only real wealth in this world. With that in mind, Randolph County schools nurture and prepare our students to be successful adults whatever their area of interest or career path. Our philosophy of education means smaller class sizes and more attention to individual talents. There are more than half a dozen private schools in Randolph County, including a high school. Southwestern Illinois College's Red Bud Campus helps your students with a jump start on their college career right here in the community. From preschool to post secondary, public or private, Randolph County's schools enhance the wealth of our students ... and our community.
