Welcome Back!
Whether you attended Staples Technical College, Brainerd Technical College, Brainerd Junior College, or Brainerd Community College, you are considered an alumni of Central Lakes College. In 1995, all of these colleges merged to form what is now called Central Lakes College with campuses in Brainerd and Staples._Q0J5508

For many, the pathway to success began here at Central Lakes College. Time and again, alumni have given credit to the transformative effect that Central Lakes College has had on their lives, and on other students who pass through its doors. We each have our own personal experience, whether it was the attention of an influential instructor, the ear of an empathetic counselor, time in a nurturing environment to decide about the future, or being given an opportunity that you thought you would never have.

YOU, our alumni, are our legacy, and Central Lakes College’s success is reflected in your success. Together, we can continue to build futures and make the dreams of today’s students come true.
