Labette Community College is a two year degree accredited college located in southeast Kansas. On April 4, 1923, Parsons voters approved a two-year Junior College and Labette Community College was founded as Parsons Junior College that on the top floor of the old high school building at 26th and Main. The College program moved to the new Parsons Senior High-Junior College building (now Parsons Middle School) in 1926. The College relocated to its present campus in the former East Junior High School building at 14th and Broadway in 1963. In June of 1965, voters approved the creation of the Labette Junior College District. The Parsons Board of Education operated the College on an interim basis, but it became a separate entity when the Labette Community Junior College Board of Trustees was elected in the spring of 1966. In 1978, the College was renamed Labette Community College.
