About LCHEC


At the Lampasas County Higher Education Center, we believe that all Texans should have access to affordable, quality education beyond high school. That's why we continually pursue strategic partnerships that strengthen LCHEC's programs and benefit our students and community.


By aligning with a strong network of nonprofit organizations, government agencies, education partners and community supporters, LCHEC is able to provide opportunities for career training, community education, and higher education to the people of Lampasas County and beyond.

Our History

The Education Foundation of the Lampasas County Higher Education Center was formed in 2009 to establish a place for residents of rural Lampasas County and surrounding counties to take college courses and workforce training.


In January 2010, Central Texas College (CTC) offered the first classes at LCHEC.

In spring 2011, LCHEC offered its first non-credit courses to the community.

Our first nurse aide training and our first customized leadership training course were also offered in spring 2011.

In summer 2011, the first cohort of master's in educational leadership students enrolled in two courses at LCHEC through Texas A&M University - Central Texas.
