Springfield Technical Community College (STCC) is the only polytechnic community college in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, located in the city of Springfield. Built on the site of the Springfield Armory National Park,[1] which was founded by Henry Knox and George Washington during the Revolutionary War, Springfield Technical Community College now occupies many of the buildings used by the U.S. Armory at Springfield prior to its closure in 1969.

Originally known as the Springfield Technical Institute and located a few blocks to the west, the school moved, expanded, and adopted its current name upon the Armory's closure in 1969.

While 20 acres (81,000 m2) of the 55-acre (220,000 m2) site remain in the hands of the U.S. National Park Service for historic preservation, 35 acres (140,000 m2) are used by the college. Numerous historic buildings have been repurposed as classrooms in addition to newer facilities built on site.

Today

Springfield Technical Community College offers associate degrees in over 30 programs and dozens of certificate/completion programs. As with all two-year colleges in the United States, graduates of STCC may enroll at four-year colleges or universities to pursue additional education. In 2005, the women's soccer team won the national division 3 NJCAA title. The men's basketball team regularly wins 20 games a season as well and has advanced to Nationals in past seasons.

Knowledge Corridor

STCC is a member of the Hartford, Connecticut, Springfield, Massachusetts regional economic and cultural partnership alliance known as New England's Knowledge Corridor.
