The oldest continuing education institute west of the Mississippi River, Weatherford College was founded in 1869. Its one- and two-year course programs in subjects like agriculture, health science, cosmetology, and fine arts, among others, prepare students for a professional career or the beginning of a bachelor, masters, or doctorate degree at another school.
As part of its commitment to affordability and accessibility, the college offers financial aid options ranging from scholarships and grants to waivers and loans. One scholarship, the Project Opportunity Scholarship Program, is available to graduates of Weatherford High School who meet additional academic and personal metrics. Another, the Honor Graduate Scholarship, is available to valedictorian and salutatorian graduates of any high school in Hood, Jack, Palo Pinto, Parker, or Wise Counties.
