Williamson College of the Trades

Williamson College is unique in many ways.  It provides all students with full scholarships covering tuition, room and board – the only free college of its kind in the nation.  The students live in supervised on-campus dorms during the entire three years of their education and, upon graduation,  receive professional certificates or Associate  Degrees.

Williamson College of the Trades prepares qualified young men to be respected leaders and productive members of society. To accomplish the mission, Williamson gratuitously provides students with academic, trade, technical, moral and religious education, and a living environment based on the Judeo-Christian perspective that fosters the values of faith, integrity, diligence, excellence, and service.

Williamson College of the Trades believes that the ideals upon which Isaiah V. Williamson founded the college are as valid and relevant today as when it was founded in 1888. In its beliefs, Williamson remains committed to these ideals.

Williamson takes a unique approach to occupational education. Over the course of three years, students receive a broad education that includes study of trade and technical theory in the classroom and realistic work projects. Students also receive academic instruction that is designed to contribute to their career success. This well-rounded training is intended to provide graduates with the skills necessary for success in a wide variety of career options, from positions in the trade and technical fields to employment as small business owners.

Mechanical trade programs include carpentry, masonry, horticulture, machine tool technology, paint and coatings and power plant technology.
