Jacksonville College

Jacksonville College is a junior college in Jacksonville, Texas, United States. It is the only accredited junior college in Texas that is privately owned and operated, owned by the Baptist Missionary Association of America, with additional financial support provided by Southern Baptists of Texas, the conservative state convention affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.

The college's current president is Mike Smith, who has served in that capacity since 2011.

The college is known for its singing groups - a main choir, a smaller group called The Singers, a women's trio, and a men's quartet.

Jacksonville College, the oldest junior college in the state of Texas, opened in 1899 and has operated continuously since that time, though before 1918 it operated as a four-year institution.
