Local graduates continue to choose Kellogg Community College more than any other college or university in the state

High school graduates in Barry, Branch and Calhoun counties continue to choose Kellogg Community College more than any other college or university in the state.

That’s according to official education data from MI School Data, an online dashboard from the State of Michigan that reports educational information, including College Enrollment Destination data showing which colleges Michigan high school students are attending.

According to MI School Data’s recently released 2022-23 report, Kellogg Community College was by far the most popular postsecondary destination for high school graduates, enrolling more than three times as many high school graduates in the Calhoun Intermediate School District as the next highest institution.

This CISD report encompasses data from Albion Public Schools, Athens Area Schools, the Battle Creek Area Learning Center, Battle Creek Public Schools, Bellevue Community Schools, Harper Creek Community Schools, Homer Community School District, Lakeview School District, Marshall Academy, Marshall Public Schools, Olivet Community Schools, Pennfield Schools, Tekonsha Community Schools and Union City Community Schools.

KCC is also the No. 1 destination for students in the Barry Intermediate School District, which encompasses data from Delton Kellogg Schools and Hastings Area School District, and the Branch Intermediate School District, which encompasses Bronson Community School District, Coldwater Community Schools, Pansophia Academy and Quincy Community Schools.

KCC President Dr. Paul Watson said the top ranking – which has held for all 16 consecutive years of available MI School Data – validates KCC’s strong tradition of affordability, convenience and accessible, high-quality education.

“Kellogg Community College is proud to once again be the No. 1 college choice for high school graduates in our region,” Watson said. “The ranking further demonstrates the trust and support local students and their families continue to have in the education and training delivered here at KCC, and we are honored as always to be a part of our students’ academic journeys, today and in the years to come.”
