A Message from President Rodney Ranes

Rodney RanesWelcome to Olney Central College! 

Students enroll at OCC for a variety of reasons; whether it is to transfer to a four-year university, gain employment in a career-technical field, obtain a high-school equivalency diploma, or for professional/personal development. OCC has a wide variety of courses, including numerous online offerings offered at various times to meet busy schedules.

The faculty and staff of OCC are dedicated to helping all students achieve their goals and are committed to providing the best learning environment possible. At OCC, you will find small class sizes that provide a focused, rigorous learning environment. Small class sizes allow you to work with faculty whose interests are focused solely on teaching. Students will also find a dedicated, hard-working student services staff that is focused on providing guidance to help meet academic goals.

At OCC, students can take part in the various activities and clubs we have to offer. The OCC Student Senate or Phi Theta Kappa can help a student gain leadership experience while focusing on academics. Students can also take advantage of extracurricular activities by supporting our men’s and women’s athletic teams. Fully engaging in the college environment will help you appreciate your experiences here.

The mission of Olney Central College is to provide excellence in teaching, learning, public service, and economic development. OCC provided me with an environment to grow as a student and explore future opportunities; and I am confident that OCC can assist you in meeting your goals.
