A "junior college" is typically a two year school where a student will receive an "Associates Degree" in a certain field. It could be a good place to begin if a student is just not sure what they would like to do or to even see if college is "right" for them. Many students will then go on to a four year college or university to continue their education. The St. Louis Metro area has many Junior Colleges to choose from. Check the list below.
