In 2011, Community College Week reported that Ranger College was the fifth fastest-growing two-year college in the nation. Our Fall 2012 enrollment was 1937 students. We offer dual-credit college classes to students in 24 different high schools in our region. Our main campus is located in Ranger, with bustling satellite campuses in Brown County and Erath County. Ranger College is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).Ranger College's main campus occupies a 50-acre campus within the city limits of Ranger, an Eastland County community of approximately 2500 people, located on Interstate 20 between Fort Worth and Abilene. The beautifully wooded, rolling hills and many lakes provide ample opportunities for hunting, fishing, and outdoor recreation, while the City of Ranger boasts an excellent school system and several active churches.One of the oldest continuously operating public two-year colleges in the state of Texas, Ranger opened its doors on the third floor of Ranger High School in August, 1925, with 30 students enrolled. Much has taken place since that austere beginning. Today the campus in Ranger serves several counties in north central Texas and awards the Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and Associate of Applied Science degrees. Students on campus may live in the college's dormitories and enjoy the college dining facilities or live at home and commute.
