The public junior college system of Alabama was established in 1963 through the efforts of Governor George C. Wallace and the Alabama Legislature. Enterprise was selected as the site for one of the original twelve state junior colleges. Area citizens and civic groups raised money for the purchase of a 100-acre campus site, donated library materials, and provided a number of scholarships— thus beginning a history of college and community cooperation for which Enterprise State Community College is noted.
The mission of Enterprise State Community College, including the Alabama Aviation College, is to improve our communities by providing students with excellent opportunities to further their education and enter the workforce.
To prepare our students to learn, to work, and to create a better community as a leading community college.
